    Slava Zaitsev and Valentin Yudashkin were the first ones to break out after the fall of communism. Right now Denis Simachev is the most popular one, I guess. I really don't like him, though. There is also Volga Volga (you can find a bit about them on www.leform.ru), Olga Kapustina. I don't know that much about the scene in general. _7_ should know more, he works in a high-end Moscow boutique.

    Volga Volga,indeed is a good one. He trained at Yohji Yamamoto my friend told me some time ago....he spends alot of time Japan as well.

    My other favourite besides Nina Donis...well,not Russian but Ukranian designer Viktoria Krasnova. I don't know what she's been doing in recent seasons since after posting this thread but I really enjoyed what she's done. There's also that adorable Belarussian label A&V,that I like.

    I'll try to get my friend to come on here(if he doesn't see this already)to give you some suggestions.

    Correction: A&V is not Belarussian but actually Lithuanian...sorry :blush:

    I haven't even looked at artishock yet...a bit slow indeed....I wish they had thumbnail preview's so one can look at whatever strikes them first...rather than going through all of them as they are.

    de rien,mademoiselle Lena! (trying to get things sticking in my head so I'll remember :lol:)
