Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia will close on 16 March in Kuntsevo Plaza complex (19 Yartsevskaya Street) by Igor Chapurin fashion show. Pre-collection of Fall-Winter Season 16/17 is built on the feelings and emotions associated with 1990s. Those times can be described as mixture of different styles, when grunge and punk aesthetics got along with minimalism and the cult of the human body (designers took a close interest in the human body back then).
Igor Chapurin, in his characteristic delicate manner, interprets the trends of the end of the previous century in the spirit of contemporary fashion.
World known photographers from all over the world will be doing the street-style shootings at the Fashion Week – Adam Katz Sinding for W Magazine, Nabile Quenum for L’Officiel France, Acielle Tanbetova for www.vogue.com, Asia Typer for www.highsnobiety.com and others.
