French Look by Gala B
April 8, 2018 17:13


 Gala B - that is, former stylist and now successful designer and human right campaigner Gala Borzova - showed us a distinctly French collection, with clear plastic being one of the key elements of the looks.

Clear capes, clear headscarves, plastic ponchos, even fully-opened clear plastic umbrellas! All this created such a light and airy atmosphere, the onlookers couldn’t help but tap their feet along to the yé-yé soundtrack. Baby pink and white, with bright orange and sky-blue were the colors Gala was most interested this time. A stately 70-year-old model made an appearance right in the middle of the show, to loud applause, with young model Liza Serpova echoing her look in a fresh, youthful and playful way.

At the finale of the show, a French cover of Rihanna’s Umbrella set a final, romantic mood for the show. A rainy day in the city of love - and after all, why shouldn’t muscovites “dress like a French girl”?


Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia

It has been over thirty seasons and fifteen years that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia is operating in Russia.  During all these years Russian fashion industry gave the world a whole bunch of fashion stars. It was to a large extent MBFW Russia that was the first to set the professional directions and rules in the Russian fashion environment. A series of seasonal fashion shows of Russian designers which Artefact Agency (owner of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia and Russian Fashion Week) started doing in 1999, became the new milestone in Russian fashion world. Since then the Fashion Week has changed several names – from the local brand Russian Pret-a-porte Fashion Week to the national Russian Fashion Week, finally changing the name to the global one - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. Recent years the permanent venue of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia has become Central Manezh. However Russian fashion is no longer restricted even by the walls of Manezh, anyone can see live broadcasts from the runway of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia and enjoy new collections from Russian designers online from any place of the world.

The main reference points of Fashion Week remained former - to look for new names, give to designers new opportunities,  propagandize the Russian fashion within the country and beyond its limits. 

Since establishment of the Fashion Week, over 400 designers and brands have been demonstrated on the runway. Among all-time participants of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia are the best names of the Russian fashion such as Slava Zaitsev, Alena Akhmadullina, Dasha Gauser, VIVA VOX, Julia Dalakian, Julia Nikolaeva, Laroom, PIROSMANI BY JENYA MALYGINA and many others.
