Fur Garden – It was a surprise to see a forgein guest designer on the first show. Sadly Fur Garden, who already presented their collection during Belarus Fashion Week, didn’t make any impression on me. The variety of colors, fabrics and shapes looked as if there was no connection between them.
Berenika Czarnota – The designer know for original sweaters, took us on a trip to South America. Next to the sweaters, native prints and colors interacted perfectly in the “Machine Gun Mama” collection, which was inspired by a movie from the 40ies.
Charlotte Rouge – One of my favourite collections on thursday. I love colorpalette from black, grey, white to green and lime. Elements like zippers, see-through fabrics and studs gave a punk rock feeling. The most interesting pieces were the jackets and coats of the collection. Especially the green vest in the picture below looked gorgeous.
Anniss – Another really good collection, although it might not hit the main stream taste. The designs were a mix o futurisic and fetishistic uniforms. A somber feeling was projected through the music and objects the models carried, like splinted glass or bent hammers.
Special guest/ Opening Show – Slava Zaitsev – The most colorful and dramatic show. While some classic music was played the models walked really, really slow down the catwalk, but at leas the crowd had enough time to take a closer look at all the details. Even though the collection was overwehleming because of its colors and folkloristic patterns, hats and fascinators, it compsosed collection worth of russian aristocrat.
