Designers from the Russian Far East Present Their Collections at the Vostok Fashion Day in Moscow

Vostok Fashion Day, a presentation of the Russian Far East designer collections, took place in Moscow. The event was organized by the Roscongress Foundation as part of the ‘Days of the Far East in Moscow’, a festival held on 2–14 December. The best Far Eastern designs were presented at the innovative Hyundai Motorstudio multi-format brand space.

Vostok Fashion Day is a follow-up to the Far Eastern designer show, which took place at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok. In September, the ‘Far East – Fashion Forpost’ fashion show was held as part of the cultural programme at the Far Eastern Federal University.

 “The Eastern Economic Forum is aimed primarily at accelerating the economic development of the Russian Far East and expanding international cooperation. At the same time, the Forum presents the culture and traditions of the region, as well as its creative achievements, to guests and participants. ‘Days of the Far East’ events contribute to the promotion of the region and allow to demonstrate its unique features to Moscow residents and visitors,” said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation, Executive Secretary of the Eastern Economic Forum Organizing Committee.

As part of Vostok Fashion Day, designers who have already taken part in Asian Fashion Weeks this season presented their collections. Among them were Svetlana Nikonova, Julia Vorotnikova, Irina Akulina, Elena Rudermel, Anastasia Shakleina, Denis Burlakov, Tatyana Vasilyeva and Svetlana Cheremnykh. Students of the Igor Sarukhanov Creative Centre took the podium during the children’s collection show.

The event attendees also participated in the prize draw to win trips to the Valley of Geysers in Kamchatka and to the ‘Oymyakon – the Pole of Cold’ tourism festival in Yakutia.

In addition, guests of Vostok Fashion Day had a chance to hear tunes by the Far Eastern music performers and see the exhibition ‘Women in Contemporary Painting by Artists of the Far Eastern Federal District. Madonnas of the Far East’, which includes 11 works. During the 5th Eastern Economic Forum, the exhibition was held for guests and participants at the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University on Russky Island, and afterwards it was presented to Vladivostok residents in the Primorye State Art Gallery.

The 6th Eastern Economic Forum will be held on 2–5 September 2020 in Vladivostok.
