Rhodes Photo Diary

As some of you know, I came back from Rhodes (Greece) a few days ago where I was on vacation. Believe it or not but  that this was my first ever time in Europe. I love Europe and I've always dreamt of visiting this continent. This expierience was like losing virginity to me (JK). I mean now I am eager to visiting as more European countries as possible. This is like my goal. Think France, think Italy, think of any point on the map situanted near holy Scandinavia etc. 
I decided that travelling is going to be one of my priorities in life. Oh my poor wallet! 
Thanks to those powers - that -  be that made this trip possible!

Thrilled to introduce you to my new photo project that I did with my dream team back in May when I was staying at my parent's casa in Krasnodar, South Russia. 
I initially had an idea of mixing the crazy yet nonchalant character of the 90-ies epoch with the elegance of clothes made by one of my favorite designers - Xox Bekoev  whose show I would be  attending quite often  a few years ago. 
The entire concept of my previous work  has evolved to be transformed into the doom and philosophical background which is slick woven into the fabric of each & every image. 
But the name of the project  says it all particularly.  
I also borrowed some pieces of clothes from my mom's wardrobe  which I thought would suit the models the best way. And they would,  actually.   
What I have got as a result has turned out into something different (from my initial idea) I guess that is hard to define. 
For example, those black & white photos, to my opinion,  are very Vogue Russia style indeed, don't you think so? 
It was a very hard project to do, there's so much work staying behind,  but I  am more than satisfied with the final result. 
Hope so you are too. 
Many thanks to Rustem, Nastya, Alesia, Julia, Eugenia, Xox, Karina. I love y'all. *kisses*

"LONELINESS": from a piece of text to the creative imaginery

Moscow Fashion Week 2018 gave me not only some professional experience but also a couple of good friends. 
There I met Lera, for example, who is a very promising young photographer from Moscow. 
While sharing the same area  at the fashion show 'photographers spot'  place we agreed to work on a project I have been keeping in mind for years until the moment I could make my dream come true.  So impressed I was by her previous projects for some other brands. 
At the University I used to have a short course of psychology which I liked a lot because of my professor who was reading lectures to students in my group and who,  thanks to my 'unique ability to write creatively' (in her own words) she once asked me to think of a piece of text for an alumni conference, the subject was up to me to choose. 
I actually chose to write about the concept of 'loneliness' because the one was responding to my current state of mind at that period of time. 
Like I guess every pubertant man I felt so lonely and abandonded but at the same time ambitious and full of energy yet extremely selfish. 
Here I am now, 20 years older and trying to work on my stylist portfolio, who's  chosen to interprete the same topic that I once had woked on being a student and translated the idea of the afore mentioned piece of text into a series of images specifically created with my team for my first professional photo project. 
I styled the whole photoshoot and guided the process from A to Z. 
I feel so proud of myself I can't even. Ho-Ho. 
But most of all I feel thankful to every member of my professional team. 
Guys, I could never make it all happen without you. 
Thank God you exist. I love y'all (you know who you are).

The first day of the 39th season of Moscow Fashion Week  has been closed  by incredibly stylish Artem Krivda Design  fashion show thanks to Artem Krivda, Creative Head of the brand ditto with  Daniil Berg who styled the collection this time and his job was fairly praised by the audience. 
Parallels aside, but Demna Gvasalia will be proud of some accents made.  
I liked that an incredibly charismatic model and You Tuber  Masha Minogarova wearing a dramatic tulle dress over a black hoodie was closing the show. 
I instantly got Lotta in mind when she was also dramatically closing the show &  holding a bouquet of yellow flowers while walking for Vetements back in 2016. . 
As for male models Rinat Mersiaitov and Gena Malinin   were also spotted on the catwalk. 
And this is so cool. 
Promptly - made patriotic accents, the posh soundtrack, professional casting to name a few, -  here is what made Mr. Krivda's show so special today. Congratulations!
