The forth day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia started with the show of the project CONTRFASHION, the main aim of which is the support of the young talents. Presenting their avance-guard collections, this projet helps them to claim about themselves in the worlds of fashion and to show their creative potential. CONTRFASHION is opened for the incredible experiences, everything that is brand new, unusual and eccentrical, and this project exists nowhere in the world but in Russia. The collections presented became a way to express the designer’s point of view that explains the specifics.

The first one to present her own collection was Olga Plenkina. With the super-large skirts, colorful cone-formed collars, surrealistic head-dress, not matching the definition of traditional hats or hoods.
After that there came a presentation of the collection of Julia Kosyak. Costumes white as if taken from the movie about postapocalyptical world, without any colorful inserts. According to designer himself, her items-transformers could change the silhouette and form, transforming from avance-guard looks into casual things.
The next designer demonstrating her work became Julia Razina. That could become visible on some items, many-leveled «tails» of the jackets, open-work inserts and many-leveled long skirts of a heavy cloth. Grey was the main color of the line, although the male looks were fulfilled in dark and light blue spectrum.
The last designer to present her collection was Julia Cezar. Graceful simplicity, monotonous white combinations of a sophisticated cut, reminding Japonese designers of avance-guard. A video appeared on the screen right before the collection’s demonstration, created for the public to understand the main designer’s idea.
