Do you have friends designers? We do. For the last time we met so many interesting people that now we have a friend designer. Actually everything started with her. She invited us to her first show during Aurora Fashion Week in Saint Petersburg, then she gave us opportunity to come and see her show during Mercedes Benz fashion week. So owing to her we made a last minute desicion to go to Moscow and it was a great experience.
So let us introduce you Anna Denisova. We were lucky to see her talent in action. It was an ARCTE show.
After some AFWR shows it was a different experience and it is hard to compare, as if the clothes that were presented are more like Street Couture than any other couture. Actually girls (have I mentioned that this ARCTE project is held by two Anna and Jenya) were positioning their collection as street couture. I like the name for this style of clothes so much! I googled it and found litterally nothing particular under this expression so I may say that girls invented something huge and I do hope they gonna develop it successfully.
You know, it is so cool when you look at clothes and you see the work of people. You realize that it is not something you can do your own, there is some secret behind the clothes. Those sweatshirts and leather jackets were both piece of art and simple thing. I was amazed how accurate and qualitive were those clothes are made. Along with the perfomance and organization the impression was super positive, even though I am usually not a fan of young designers. And another thing that is great when people who you know do the things that you really like, so you kinda feel their success on you.
So how do you feel about the collection? Would you wear it or not? Do you have some ideas or suggetions for girls who are just in the beggining of their way?
I was wearing:
H&M Jacquard pants
H&M transparent blouse
Salvatore Ferragamo bag
