The last season became a landmark for me, I did everything that was planned, one hundred percent.
Horses became the theme of my show. I lived this story for two years, waiting for the right moment. I am fascinated by these strong and at the same time fragile animals, their beauty and elegance I associate only with women. The logical conclusion of the show was the installation: naked girls in horse heads with bridles and stylized saddles.
We start preparing for the new season as soon as we finish the previous one. In general, we have five months to prepare the collection, and we do everything on time. Sometimes, two weeks before the show, I already say: "That's it, period, the work is over."
Sometimes overlays do happen: for example, last season I had my main dress behind the scenes, they just didn’t have time to change it.
Everything went perfect this season. With only one unpleasant moment for me, from the show by Akhmadullina, my friend came to me Natasha Goldenberg, they did not immediately find a place for her and she was forced to leave. It was very uncomfortable.
As for the schedule, the second season of Moscow Fashion Week puts on a strong designer at the same time as me. Last season it was Kirill GassilinAs a result, at the end of the show, many guests got up and left for me. This season, half an hour apart - Alena Akhmadullina.
I am on friendly terms with Russian designers, among them there are friends close to me, these are Alexander Terekhov and Vika Gazinskaya… We are all doing the same thing.
