On October 22, 2016, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Day Saint Petersburg took place, which has become a regular follow-up event for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. Such well-known brands of St. Petersburg like IANIS CHAMALIDY, VIKKI (Victoria Afanaseva) and IGOR GULYAEV presented their collections in the Manege of the Cadet Corps.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Day St. Petersburg started with a catwalk show of the Spring/Summer 2017 collection by IANIS CHAMALIDY.  This collection is based on Greco-Roman motives. The mind of the collection shero wanders freely like a Greek wind. Black, gray and white grade into soft and delicate colors, and then the color layout of the image goes on to the red color, a bright accent in the quiet color range. In the collection by IANIS CHAMALIDY reserved multilayerness prevailed. In the catwalk show the designer presented flying oversize dresses and vests, shirts and loosely fitted suits. 

The collection ‘A Change In The Air’ by VIKKI (Victoria Afanaseva) contained ornaments based not on natural objects, but on digital data about them presented as polygonal 3D networks. The designer combines natural materials with synthetics, namely – the analogue of neoprene, where the traditional rubber fabric is replaced with cellular material. 

The final show during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Day Saint Petersburg by IGOR GULYAEV was a story of lovers, whose fascination of one another was beyond the wit of the wider public. It was a ‘Riddle Wrapped Up in an Enigma’. Charming lucidness of images, elegance of silk, wool and handmade lace echoed the sense of intimacy and care giving. Ensembles presented modern A-lines and trapezes, and those who prefer street style must have enjoyed the line of accessories, too. There were futuristic knitted overcoats with puff sleeves, backpacks, handbags and clutch bags with unique patterns. Wide strokes supplemented with filigreed patterns, prints and drapes the brand is famous for were also in place.
