Red Moscow Fashion Festival in Moscow
August 10, 2019 15:06


Do you think Russian fashion has remained in textbooks and museums only? No way! Red is the hit of the season again! Scarlet Baranov chintz once made a fashion revolution in Paris and Antwerp, and now you have the opportunity to see it in practice.
On August 17-18, 2019, the Bogolyubov Arts Library in Moscow will host the Red Moscow Fashion Festival dedicated to actualized traditional Russian fashion.

As early as in the 19th century, the unique graceful and lovely Russian patterns resounded the world over. Thus, for example, colorful Baranov fabrics and original women's kerchiefs have repeatedly won high awards at London and Vienna exhibitions. In Paris, one of the samples called "A Currant Leaf" won the Grand Prix at the World Exhibition held in 1889.



Interest in Russian national distinctness remains relevant till nowadays. Artists and designers still find inspiration in ancient Slavic symbolism and Russian folk arts and crafts. The organizers of the festival believe that such traditional patterns on fabrics are very fashionable and avant-garde.

The founders of the unusual Red Moscow Fashion Festival revive the love for Russian folk motifs, and do it with rare grace. In the hands of the masters, the scarlet Baranov chintz plays out in fresh colors. You can enjoy it for free in the Alexei Bogolyubov Arts Library.


In 1886, the scarlet Baranov chintz made a fashion break-through in Vienna and London, having received many awards at the shows, including the grand prix of the Paris exhibition for the elegance of the pattern. From then on, kerchiefs outshone other headgears. Since one of the main features of fashion is a cycling character, it is not surprising that red chintz is becoming a trend again.
Visitors to the Red Moscow Fashion Festival 2019 will see what the Slavic symbolism, creatively actualized by modern designers, turns into. Fashion defile, free from jingoism, will surprise and enamour the audience.



The headliner of the festival in a historic mansion will be artist and designer Vadim Stashkevich. He will present the New Fresco collection accompanied with the music composed by Nike Borzov specially for the show. In addition to the catwalk, free master classes will be held at the festival, where you will be trained to decorate pocket mirrors with patterns themed on Russian folk tales and make traditional Russian doll amulets.
Visitors will also be welcomed to the designer outfits and accessories market.
Food courts will be available as well.


Where: the Bogolyubov Arts Library at the address 14, Suschevskaya Street, next to metro station Mendeleevskaya and Novoslobodskaya, Moscow.
When: from 12 pm to 8 pm on August 17, 2019 and from 12 pm to 7:30 pm on August 18, 2019.
