Alina Kovaleva

New clothing brand BRAVENTRU was launched by Moscow designer Alina Kovaleva, graduate of British Higher School of Art and Design, in 2013. BRAVENTRU is casual outfit and accessories for independent girls living in big cities. Loose silhouettes of garments, comfortable cuts and nice fabrics are all hallmarks of BRAVENTRU style designed for a quick pace of the big city.

'The first collection is devoted to transformation, the effect of fast, subtle alterations in our lives. Numerous details like combinations of textures of different fabrics within one laconic silhouette, twists of print and embroidery, deformation of knitted fabric, everything underlines the principal theme of the collection.'

 

 

Anna Ryazanova

ANNA RYAZANOVA is the brand of female clothing of premium class established in 2013 by the graduate of the British Higher School of Art and Design Anna Ryazanova. Garments of this brand feature complex cuts, laconic lines, expensive fabrics and individual approach.

 

Ilya Varegin

Philosophy of Infundibulum is search of sustainability, routes for integration of inner spirit and life in its modern context.
Spirit stands for vibrations of higher degree of the personality while surrounding environment is the source of discord. The personality is in harmony when its vibrations and frequency are in no discord with the surrounding environment.
Perceiving garments as a converter, the means for removing the discord, Infundibulum  combines the aggressive aesthetics of urbanism and rhetorical aesthetics of asceticism. Our aim is leave out the decoration for the sake of function, search of functional reason for every designer's decision. 

 

Lena Chudnaya

In the basics of the graduation collection URBAN PSYCHO there is a history of urban insanity. The dialogue between the contemporary urban representative and office while collars. Major female character is the resident of modern megalopolis, she suffers from inability to find her place outside the office walls. She usually speaks with herself. At certain point she finds a partner who drives her out of her mind...
The notion of 'white collar worker' is referred to American writer Upton Sinclair who metaphorically gave this name to clerks, administrators and managers in 1930s. An employee who has nothing to do with physical labour.
Male suit from 1930s was reframed: wide shoulders, higher waist, pants end above ankle, crease. Every look is a certain historical episode. In every episode the city literally 'shakes' girl's mentality, leaving a print on her outfit.

 

Maryana Sbitneva

Slogan of the collection presented by the principal designer of the brand, Maryana Sbitneva (graduate of BSHAD): The bridge between visible and invisible... The collection appeals to secrets of the inner world of human being, helps him or her to discover oneself through the nature of things. When developing the print with multifaceted colour, the designer used the photograph of DUNITE mineral (under microscope picture with cross-polarised light). Interchange of textures and shine contributes to garments the psychological vibration.

Svetlana Salnikova

Fy:r is the young brand of casual wear for people who get carried away by the things they do and prefer personal space to attention of strangers.
The brand metaphorically interprets the principle of Scandinavian design ' Shape follows the function' like 'Clothes mirror the person but do not decorate her or him'. It is expressed in search of new shapes within conventional silhouettes, within minimum details and neat attitude to colours and textures.
Fy:r - is wear that does not distract from the personality. The graduate collection Fy:r – The Daily Circus was inspired by the circus and life of everyone of us. Circus is the culmination of human possibilities but when we get impressed by the talents of circus artists on circus manège, we forget that working as doctors, scientists and managers, ordinary people every day perform many different miracles.
