The aim of Fashion Week – to support and promote Russian designers – has evolved in the past years, – says general director of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia Alexander Shumsky. – Today Fashion Week in Moscow is the main venue for designers with Russian background. Among the graduates from fashion institutes in the West there are quite a lot of those who speak Russian but run their business in London, New York or Paris. Some of them have already presented their collections on the catwalks of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia – Von Vonni, BASHARATYAN V and others. This year Fashion Week will increase its support: we want the best Russian speaking designers to present their collections in Moscow.
During the breaks between the shows visitors will be entertained by a program of fashion-movies prepared together with NYFFF (New York Fashion Film Festival): guests of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia will be able to watch fashion-inspired works of Roman Polanski, Ryan McGinley, Stephen Meisel.
The business-program of Fashion Weel will host a conference for Digital, Luxury and Fashion experts HUBFORUM 2013 – “Strategy for promoting luxury brands via Internet”.
