#ФИНАЛЬНАЯ ФАНТАЗИЯ: FF17 by Volchok Clothing

I thought I'd share some photos I took this Saturday while partying all night long (literally) at Squat 3/4 where there was afterparty on behalf of one of my favourite streetwear brands Volchok Clothing.   A boho-rave club transformed into a quite impressive creative space from a former XIX cent. sauna not so long time ago and stuffed to the brim with 'art nouveau' objects was a smart choice of Vasilii Volchok, a charismatic founder of the eponimous brand which has become a cult wear among  'wasted generation' youths around Russia & Kiev (presumably), to show his FF17 collection called "ФИНАЛЬНАЯ ФАНТАЗИЯ" ("Final Fantasy" in English). 
I didn't expect myself to have been doing a real weat-a-thon dance bender for hours until dawn. 
Believe it or not, I just didn't want to leave and time flied unexpectedly fast. 
It was so therapeutic to submit myself to musical sets of Protocol, Okkultative, Sofia Rodina and many others of them cool Djs. I can't even. The atmosphere was fantastic. 
To tell the truth before going there I had been afraid of feeling like an outsider surrounded by all that underage tattooed faces squad with half shaved heads (which luckily didn't happen ) who often pops up the place,  vice versa I felt like a part of a big family in fact. I even managed to find  some new interestimg aquaintances like with Igor Andreev (Art Director at SNC Magazine, Editor-in-Chief of Numero Russia). Lera Shabelnikova (PR manager at VINZAVOD ARTCENTER) to name a few. 
After leaving the nightclub in company with my new friend Alijona and her two boyfriends she met the other night I felt so happy because I knew that the best thing in life always happen unexpectedly. And there's more of them to follow...

Publick talk: designer Konstantin Gayday and blogger Masha Kolosova at AVIAPARK

Last week I got invited to a public talk event where a renowned Russian millinery designer Konstantin Gayday presented his fashion installation called "Triumph of autumn" that was followed by a 1- hour interview assisted by a fashion & lifestyle blogger Kyklamasha  in a  shopping center -  Aviapark. 
The topic for the installation was chosen accordingly to the current fall fashion season so was the discussion about. 
After a short cocktail drinks lounge time in the lobby of Trend Island,  which is actually the main "lecture zone" in the shopping center, a dozen of beautifully dressed girls and single male person aka me were seated and treated by hospitable stuff just to listen to Kostantin's personal stories from his background in the fashion industry. 
It was interesting to know how the fashion business in Russia is made from  the inside. 
Like any other business there are many hidden dangers there, you know. 
For example, I remembered a story when Grand Dame of Russian Art House Cinema Renata Litvinova (BTW she is a good friend of Gosha Rubchinskiy and Demna Gvasalia, a current artistic director of Balenciaga) called Konstantin and said that she urgently needed a hat. 
She omitted the details, of course, but Konstantin like being a multi-talented creator managed to create a real piece of art out of some pieces of fabric and feathers and numerous payettes he had been collecting for years. 
Renata then starred in one of her magnifiscent movies wearing this hat. 
I was thrilled to have a chance of meeting such a famous designer in person. 
We even exchanged some complimentary words with each other and it was fun. Thank you, dear Konstantin for a very interesting discussion. 
I just wanted to share some pictures with you. There is also a video, but it is raw - I hope I will edit it a bit later to post it on my YouTube channel. 

Find the nerdy girl in the row. LOL

 Danila Polyakov in my cam

You maybe remember my "Person of the Day" blogpost I once wrote  about Danila Polyakov, a one of a kind androgyne Russian model who at the age of  19 y.o. debuted at STORM models agency and a few years after already walked for such respected fashion moguls as Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and even  Gianfranco Ferre.
I like everything about this man: his unique "a bit freaky" personal style, his nonchalant attitude about things he puts his hands on, his freedom in self-expression and so on.  
Like it or not everyone knows his name  (at least in Russia). 
Some people laugh at the shocking behavior of this red-haired badass guy while he doesn't care at all though, some admire him and call him  "true artist" and forgive him for his scandalous tricks  he makes out there. 
People eat it when he shows up at the most glamorous parties wearing a navy blue  "polka dot" print dress and stripper shoes worn together with shabby socks, when he drinks all the champagne served for a dozen of gentlemen in expensive Armani suits. 
How can you not fall in love with a man who once said: "Art helps not to lose one's  mind". 
In my previous blogpost I said I would probably lose consciosness when I meet him in person. Nope luckily I was all right. This betch just showed a middle finger in my cam (BTW this is not for me, this is for you), I hugged him and that's all I needed to feel like the happiest man in the world. 

Read more pages about Danila here coz I'm not his f* autobiographer LOL

As you know from my Instagram I attended an art event the day before yesterday. 
This was an exhibition of contemporary art held at ART4 gallery and curated by an internationally renowned contemporary artist - Andrey Bartenev.  
Actually this was one of my biggest dreams to see Bartenev's artworks with my own eyes, but hardly had I known that one day I would not only see the artworks but also meet the artist in person. Oh Lord the Jesus have mercy on me. Why are you so kind to me if you  give me all these incredible opportunities?  I feel so happy I can't even. 
I cannot express my excitement about how wonderful it is when you have a chance to share the same air with people who you have been admirimg since 'shitty kiddy diapers' times. 
Apart from the moscovian artistic elite (some of them didn't look like this way but more like dopey clochards), I could exchange a couple of kind words with Vasiliy from Volchok Clothing brand, hugged a top male androgyny model Danila Polyakov, got a compliment about my HOUSE rubber sandals from a popular  Russian TV host etc. 
 I didn't need drugs to be completely spaced out of the place. I can't say the same about the crowd though but who am I to judge, right? 
I sugest you to see a number of selected pictures.  They are as raw as possible. 
I will probably post a couple of  insider vids on my blog later after I edit them. I love y'all. 
I am asking you who the f* has ball to wear a plastic kettle on the head. Only the artist artist born in the damn hole of the polar bear of Siberia. I feel so proud of this man. He is the most creative of them all f* creatives.
