Aurora Fashion Week. Day II: Alexander Khrisanfov, Milla Berillo


The Alexander Khrisanfov's collection is gentle and soft. The neutral palette with some color accents make the elegant and sensual look. I love the hair accessories, they definitely made it work and created a special mood.

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"...

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.

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."

Aurora Fashion Week. Day I.


Aurora Fashion Week is one of the main fashion events in St. Petersburg,Russia. Every season Russian and International designers are showing their collections and presentation to the guests of AFW. This time we were watching Spring Summer 2014 collections. Some of them were OK and some have just blew my mind. I fell in love with few new brands and definitely going to buy some new garments for my wardrobe soon.

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!
