The biggest part of Russian fairy tales were created by people with a big life experience, people who have traveled a lot and seen a lot. They were mainly created by peasants and workers, who based their imaginary world on ordinary perceptions of beauty. We can find lots of animism, magic and mythology.I like Russian fairy tales and the pictures showing the main epic scenes from them because they depict a lot of features of Russian soul and view on the world by Russians. They are rich in details, bright in colours and precise in showing souls in each character, since "the soul" is the main characteristic of Russian culture. Russian literature abounds of different fairy tales and that is why i think that could be an interesting source for inspiration.
The more i see new work of Alena Akhmadullina, the stronger i fall in love with her and her works. Incredibly is that probably she found the key how to make the communication between Russian traditions and what people want to buy.
The fact that she is going to open her new store in Chechnya is so challenging...The Chechen branch of Alena Akhmadullina brand will specialize in clothes and accessories that will suit the Chechen women's traditional clothing preferences.
Alena Akhmadullina showed an amazingly super and extraordinary fashion show that some of the visitors left the her autumn/winter 2010/2011 show is the best picture of how the fashion should be in its true nature. I think that the times when fashion can change the politics just have come. Fashion should move, go forward, show something unexpected. So that girl just show it in her new collection.
Stilyagi is a sovetic young subculture that appeared at the end of 1940 s and lasted untill the beginning of 1960 s. The icon of lifestyle was an american way of life for them, which was at these days quite dangerous. They had an enormouus interest in Western music and dances. They had some kind of protest against the stereotypes of behaviour and triviality in clothes, preferences in music and lifestyle.
During the last 7 years the fotos of Egor Zaika had been published in many magazines, such as, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Icons, InStyle, Citizen K, Tattler. When he came from advertising into fashion magazine he was already awared how to make a product cute and modern. But he tried to follow two genres: fashion photo and portraits. His last exhibition ¨Remeslo¨ where he selected his best 32 fotos. He gathered all famous and important personalities nowadayds in Russia: from sportmen to politicians in these photos. The question is: why russian models have such great succes in the world of fashion and photographers really suck?
