Moscow, April 14, 2017.The First Moscow Design Biennale awarded its best projects in a wide variety of fields, such as industrial design, graphic design, information design, ambient design, fashion design, shopping spaces design, design in promotion and event design. Fashion Design project, prepared by the Russian Fashion Council, won in the Special Display category.
The awards ceremony was inaugurated by Vladimir Filippov, first deputy head of Moscow Department of Culture. "We are walking along our streets, but maybe someone is a newcomer to our city and is feeling these emotions for the first time, experiencing Moscow through its architecture, through the way the citizens are dressed, through the visual content they can seen on the city ads, through the way our public transport looks like, all of these elements create a certain mood. Design is a mood. Our country is the pioneer in many achievements of the human civilization and it certainly has to be a trendsetter in fashion and design, a trendsetter in architecture, in materials", he said.
"Six young designers were recognized by the jury of the Design Biennale, and that is a good start. This is a good example of new technology usage in leadership, when they are only underscoring an idea, not changing it. By the way, all of the clothes are from new collections and will be available this fall", said Alexander Shumsky, executive president of the Russian Fashion Council.
Fashion Design multimedia display, prepared by the Russian Fashion Council and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia for the Biennale, presents works of six young designers from Moscow and Saint Petersburg, namely Artem Shumov, NAIDAL, Lumier Garson, ZA_ZA, Saint-Tokyo and TURBO YULIA, who implemented a set of elements intrinsic to various artistic folk crafts in their runway shows. The installation is enhanced by 360° videos showing recent Moscow presentations and video projections that turn traditional patterns and prints into graphic icons. Creative director of the fashion project is Ekaterina Melnikova.
The First Moscow Design Biennale will last till April 17. Full winners list: https://www.facebook.com/moscow.design.biennale/posts/1130642520392418.
