Aurora Fashion Week. Day III: ZA-ZA, Artkvadrat


Brand Za-Za was founded by fashion designer Alexandra Koryakina in 2011. Za-Za's presentation was one of the most intriguing and interesting from third day of Aurora Fashion Week. The colors are quite soft, but the structure of the clothes is really strong and angular. I love the bold elements of Za-Za designs and I definitely would like to see more of its works in the future.

Interpretive studies. Inspiration

I fell in love with this shoot! So sensual and clean at the same time. Love the details and the way photographer captured emotions of models without "overplaying"...
"Interpretive studies" editorial by Torbjørn Rødland in Double #26 F/W 13.14.

Aurora Fashion Week. Day II: Leonid Alexeev

Fashion show of Leonid Alexeev was one of the most amazing from the second day of Aurora Fashion Week. When the light turned off and five models came to the the runway in the silence, some of the audience were shocked: no music at all? But then we saw a beautiful piano and with its gentle notes the show has started.

Leonid Alexeev is one of the main designers in Russian menswear, but he's working at two lines of prêt-a-porter clothes (Leonid AlexeevHomme and Leonid Alexeev Femme) and on AFW we saw his beautiful collection for women.
In 2007 Leonid Alexeev received bachelor's degree in Fashion Design Menswear at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, then returned to St Petersburg, Russia where he continues working at both his lines,operate with private and corporate orders, theaters, movies and stars of show business.

Aurora Fashion Week. Day II: Liza Odinokikh, Lidia Demidova, Artem Shumov.

Collection of Liza Odinokikh, where models were wearing masks, was one of the most intriguing and mysterious. The second day of AFW was really surprising and I found many pieces I'd love to wear.
Liza Odinokikh is fashion designer from St Petersburg, who has also studied at NABA, Italy. She designs for young and modern,independent women, who's not afraid of experiments. Liza Odinokikh loves minimalsm and often use leather in her collections. Brand shows us designs with soft lines,mix of textures and sensuality.

Aurora Fashion Week. Day I. Clarisse Hieraix

Yes, I've already wrote an article about Aurora Fashion Week. Day I , but I left a surprise for you. I didn't post photos of Clarisse Hieraix' s fashion collection. It was really amazing and inspiring show, so I've decided it deserves its own article and more photography to look at.

Clarisse Hieraix is a French designer from Guadeloupe. The smooth elegant lines of the garments from Clarisse Hieraix collection mixed with the angular graphic lines, creating an incredible structure of the garments."Between strenght and fragility, Clarisse Hieraix woman metamorphoses. As a tight wire, ready to break, she cautiously deserts her shell. The tulle tears apart, the stitch feverishly weaves, the raffia spreads as lichen on a trunk. Effects consuming clothes become memories of a bygone age.

Structured lines, faithful to the designer, let be invaded by those organic materials. The eye gets lost in the barks meanderings protecting the woman of a dream-like armour. Half-chrysalis, half-creature taking off, Clarisse Hieraix woman suggests us an enchanted vision of modernity."

Angles. Inspiration

Found this gorgeous editorial from Tank Magazine photographed by  Ilaria Orsini. Love the minimalistic styling and mix of angles, shadows and architectural lines.

DnN St. Petersburg Fashion Week. Day III.

Third day of DnN St. Petersburg Fashion Week (Check out the Firs Day here and Second day here ). For me it was the most interesting one, because I got a chance to go backstage (I'll post one more special post about it soon) and watch the crazy process of doing make-up, hairstyle and talk to some friends who worked there.

The show has started with two collections of students of International School of Design. The clothes were laconic and quite simple, I loved the neutral color palette and draped garments.

Minju Kim for H&M

Finally, it's almost here! Winner of the H&M Design Award 2013, Minju Kim has developed pieces for being sold in selected H&M stores around the world from October 17th. I only hope Minju Kim's collection will be in Russian H&M stores too.

Minju Kim has graduated from Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. She has showed a great collection with transformed drawn characters on her garments. Ahain, I can feel a bit of Korean themes in her clothing. I love the structure and layers she put there. The texture of textile is strong and soft at the same time, the color palette is fresh, but not too colorful.

Minju Kim' s collection consists of nine women’s pieces and two accessories. I'm absolutely in love with sweatshirt and thinking about buying t-shirt too. If I had an endless budget, I would probably just buy all of these pieces. Although they're not completely in my style, I feel like we belong together...

Hope you'll enjoy the lookbook of Minju Kim for H&M and few more photos from “Dear My Friend” collection.

DnN St. Petersburg Fashion Week. Day II.


Second day of DnN St. Petersburg Fashion Week has started with futuristic show of Yulia Kosyak. The models looked unreal, even their movements were very conceptual. The collection has started with the pure white creatures from another world, then it turned to darker tones and ended up with purple garments, which looked like they were even possible to wear in everyday life.

DnN St. Petersburg Fashion Week. Day I.


After September full of fashion events in Paris, Milan, London and New York, finally it's turn to open the fashion season in Russia. The first one is DnN Fashion Week, one of the main seasonal fashion events of North Capital (that's how we call St. Petersburg here).

I was invited there as a photographer for the magazine I work with. And I can totally call it "a trip for business and pleasure"! I really enjoyed all of the shows, it's always interesting to see the runway and all of the small details you've probably couldn't have noticed on TV.

My article and the main photos (they are the best ones and totally worth seeing) will be published in the magazine next month, but for now I'm going to show you some sneak peaks form my first day on DnN St. Petersburg Fashion Week. Hope you'll enjoy it friends!

I instantly fell in love with this new face! A 18 years old Jacob Scott is native of Middlesbrough, England of German and Irish descent. He has recently dyed his hair to blond and looks so fresh and totally different from his look with the dark hair.

Jacob Scott was scouted in a mall in Houston, Texas and now he's signed with New York Model Management. With his incredible bone structure and freckles he already did a Calvin Klein exclusive in Milan and I'm sure he has a bright future in fashion industry.

Bambi Northwood-Blyth for Urban Outfitters. Inspiration

Have been browsing some old photos of Bambi Northwood-Blyth and found this amazing shoot for Urban Outfitters Catalogue from 2012 year.

There's such a great summer mood in it, so magical and inspiring! Maybe these photos look so attractive for me, because I want to go to the sea so much! I dream about few days with a magical sea view... But unfortunately, I'm stuck in the city with my work and can't let myself have a vacation at the moment. I only hope that I'll have one really soon.

Bambi always look so amazing on the photos, I love her really natural look and relaxed style. Hope you will enjoy these photos.

A Long Long Story by Peter Lindbergh. Inspiration

Have been looking at the archives of Vogue Italia and found this amazing shoot by one of my favorite photographers Peter Lindbergh.

All of his images are so alive and full of emotions, even if the models are just standing in front of the camera without any moves. I can't explain it, but for me it's a pure art. His talent of showing models' souls and making the pictures so interesting is incredible. I will be happy if I'll be able to create something like that one day... I'd even say, if only I could have a small part of his talent, it would be a dream come true...

Well, anyway. hope you'll enjoy this photos like I do!

She's been on the covers of numerous fashion magazines and you keep seeing her on fashion weeks every season.

I like Andreea Diaconu's personal style. It seems like she likes really comfortable and simple clothes, she always look so natural in her daily life. You'll never see her wearing a lot of make-up and of course, she doesn't need it at all, because she's a real beauty.

Pawel Gralevitz. Model. New Face. Inspiration.

Pawel Gralevitz is a guy from another planet. With his a bit androgynous look, I'm sure people can't take their eyes over him. His look is so captivating and magical. The bone structure of Pawel Gralevitz's face is incredible and his alien eyes are perfect for camera. As a photographer, I must say that he'll fit almost every idea of a shoot from classic ones to provocative.

Being elegant and edsy, Pavel joined D’Vision Models Warsaw in 2012 year and since then has been working as a model. He describes himself as a simple man with simple tastes: oat milk, skateboarding, good movies, music, and uncomplicated relationships - that's what he prefers.

Pavel walked exclusively for Lanvin and shot the Xander Zhou campaign. It seems like his career is going to be very successful really soon! He combines his modeling career and university studying. Let's hope we'll see more of Pawel's appearances really soon!

Trip to Rovinj, Croatia. Travel.


I've wrote an article about my trip to Zagreb recently.This time I'd like to tell you about the second part of my trip to Croatia.

After staying in Zagreb for several days, we've decided to go to Rovinj. A beautiful small city situated on the north Adriatic Sea with a population of about only 15 000 people. But it was August, which means a time for vacation, so there were so many people from all over the world and after surprisingly calm Zagreb, Rovinj seemed really crowded place with a lot of things going on.


Совсем недавно я писала в блоге о моей поездке в Загреб. На этот раз, я бы хотела рассказать вам о второй части моего путешествия по Хорватии.

После пребывания в Загребе в течение нескольких дней, мы решили направиться в Ровинь. Это сказочно красивый маленький городок на берегу Адриатического моря на западном побережье полуострова Истрия. Его население составляет всего лишь около 15 тысячи человек. Но, поскольку был август, что означает, время отпусков, в Ровине было множество туристов и, после удивительно спокойного и "пустынного" Загреба, этот город казался очень многолюдным и полным событий.
