Evgenia Linovich (MASTERPEACE by Evgenia Linovich)

‘Fashion is one of the popular types of contemporary art, that in significance and the power of impact is up there with music and cinema.’

Eugenia Malygina (PIROSMANI BY JENYA MALYGINA)

‘Once at Montmartre I saw an art object - Man going through a wall – a small sculpture in the wall. Then I made a conclusion that during our journey to the goal we should accumulate all our patience and belief and then we will be able to break through the wall made of the hardest stone.’

Oksana Fedorova

‘I have seen many art objects that deserve true admiration at the exhibition India: jewelries that won the hearts.’

Julia Dalakian

‘I was always inspired by poetry. The skill to embody the mood into harmonious combination of words, to share with the world something very personal, not the dry prose but rhymed, almost musical phrases. Fashion is the same poetry to me, however in the dress and not in the text.’

Yulia Prokhorova Beloe Zoloto

‘For me fashion is the picture, the one that you are painting but will never finish.’

Vassa (VASSA&CO)

Oleg Biryukov (BIRYUKOV)

‘I am impressed by the cathedral – Santa Maria Assunta, this brilliant pearl of Venetian architecture.’

Giulia Mori (Antonella Rossi)

Julia Nikolaeva

‘I was truly impressed by 900,000 ceramic poppies that were made manually and “planted” around the London Tower to commemorate the people who died during the First World War.’

Olga Shurygina (Cap America)
