LUNA "Sleeping Beauty"



My beloved Ukrainian pop-star Kri Luna has released her new single "Sleeping Beauty" ["Спящя красавица"]. 
You may not know a word in Russian but you can't stay untouched by Kristina's (Kristina Bardash is a real name of the singer) moody vocals which is between some melodic synthy -  pop of Lana del ray and low-fi rock of I don't know - let it be her authentic style.  
If my persuasive words are not enough to fall in love with Ms. Bardash, check out her interview for Wmagazine which dates bck September, 1 2017 but nevertheless it gives quite a full image of this  unique artist.

MEET-UP WITH ADAM KATZ SINDING "This is not a f*cking book launch world tour"AT POP-UP SHOP MBFWR Day 2




Disclaimer on a TV screen was boldly saying: "This is not a f*cking book launch" when the worldwide famous, American-born, photo-journalist Adam Katz Sinding showed up at the venue to answer his numerous fans' questions and, more importantly, to sign his book called (what do you think?): "This is not a f*cking street style book" for 40 luckier ones. 
I guess there's noone in the fashion industry who never heard of  Le 21ème, Adam's nickname after his infamous online photo journal.
I had heard of the book before but I didn't know the fact that its Preface had been written by Virgil Abloh before his appointment  as Men's Wear Designer at  Louis Vuitton.  That is interesting and it means that Mr. Katz was a fortune teller somehow. 
Anyway, I had a chance to ask Adam a question about his favourite fashion week. 
He answered - Paris Fashion Week,  which is quite explainable cause PFW is major in my opinion too. 
I also wanted to ask another question: "What's that beef between him & Declan Chan that one could see during one of the book-signing sessions on Instagram a year ago I guess?" but I thought it was someting personal and stupid to ask. 
I had been waiting for 30 minutes for a selfie with Adam but unfortunately the queue was too long &  I was pressed for a  time, but nevertheless I had managed to take a photo of him before the meet-up. 
He's in a good shape IMHO. I like his smile too. 
Maybe next time is a selfie time?

VOLCHOK: 'CRAST TEST' COLLECCTION 2018/19 AT FUTURUM MOSCOW





Yesterday I visited the fall/winter 2018/19 Volchok Crash Test presentation at Futurum Moscow that I unfortunately had skipped before. 
Vasilii Volchok-Rusakovich, Creative Director of Volchokclothing, launched a collection of presumably red-and-black pieces which would be undoubtedly adored by young fans  of the infamous Russian streetwear brand. While models were taking it in turns to pose in front of the hired photographer's camera I caught the moment and photographed practically the entire collection for you to enjoy. My favourite piece is a reflective winter coat  (which is very similar to Sies Marjan Multicolor Reflective Blaine Raglan Coat that Declan Chan was wearing in Paris this season).

INSPIRED BY THE DARK AGES


It's been months since I last posted content related to my previous fashion photo-project on my blog. 
And what I have to say is  that it's becoming harder and harder over & over again  for ideas in my head to see the light though the outcome buys all the effort put into incredible work me and my team apply to each project every time. 
I guess this photo - project is going to become a cherry on a pie in my portfolio and after I cease getting   my new 'stylist webpage' done I will be ready for the next step in my self-education:  enrolling in a course for stylists. 
I haven't chosen a particular school yet because there are lots of them of various kinds here in Moscow but recently I've been following one project called  ONLINE. INSIDE on Instagram which is headed by former Editor-in-Chief of Numero Russia magazine - Igor Andreev and I love it. 
I am going to attend his 'open master class' tomorrow BTW. 
Speaking about the project let me not get into the routine background details shadowing the final result for I don't want to spoil your first impression, but trust me it all was not easy to do. Period!  
I would just like to thank my incredible teammated  who were helping me in making my dream come true.
You know it all started as an illusion coming through my mind when I was visiting The Pushkine State  Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, Russia,  this August. 
Me & Lera, the photographer had been previously discussing possible ideas for our new project for a couple of days already but they all had been vague. 
I couldn't decide what I wanted exactly. 
I literally couldn't eat & sleep without having a Power Point Presentation  done which would summarize all  thoughts swirling my mind before. 
The moment I was wandering around those pictures representing the Art of Germany & the Netherlands which dated back by the XVth - XVIth century, yet the Art Flanders of the XVIIth century, I had a clear flash in my mind:  I inevitably wanted to make all those paintings live. 
I also wanted  to weave this outdated aethetics into the modern context of fashion by adding a bit of 'localism' (I mean using clothes of Russian designers particularly) into the new visuals I would be creating later on. 
I'm now having tears on my eyes when I'm writing this piece cause it's such an emotional moment for me  when I realise that random people shared the same aethetics as me, they tried to help me  as much as they could in doing what I wanted, and my creative ego  needed. 
And as a result we have this baby born. 
Sorry for my being pathetic maybe but all my creative initials are truly my kids. 
In spite of the fact we don't get in touch very often due to our 'side' jobs, I love you all and I feel like you have become a part of me for a short period of time while working on the project. 
Mey God bless your beautiful souls! Each & every of you (you know who you are!).
