#MBFashionDay. on March 17 in St. Petersburg
On Saturday, March 17, #MBFashionDay took place in the Manege Central Exhibition Hall of St. Petersburg. Russian brands Dress by Olya Gerasimenko, L’EREDE, IANIS CHAMALIDI, VIKKI (Victoria Afanaseva), winners of the New Names in Design-2018 Awards by the Sobaka.ru, and IGOR GULYAEV presented their collections.
Dress by Olya Gerasimenko is a brand of the young designer from St. Petersburg. Inspired by Eleanor Farjeon’s tale about Lotta, the apprentice to a Big Dressmaker, in 2015 Olga Gerasimenko established a clothing brand of her own. Key items of this brand are dresses, romantic and graceful, as if made to walk along Neva embankments.
Her new capsule collection is dedicated to Goddess TARA, patroness of fire with 21 emanations. A flowing powdery-shaded dress, a jacket of metal coated satin, a very British checked raincoat, pants with side stripes, a coat on the naked body and a halter neck dress… Sporty trousers were finely paired with transparent tulle shirts, and the designer proposed wearing an oversize hoodie over a dress. Pink socks with shoes of the 60s, wide sashes and shoulder belts that the models wore on their wrists and necks, narrow ribbon scarves extending the silhouettes, and roses made of folded satin welt – these accessories brightened up even the most ordinary looks. Cross-body murses migrated from club fashion to classic looks. Basic colors – beige gold, lavender, cream, and pink (even on hair of the models). Fabrics – chiffon, tulle, and lots of satin.

L’EREDE is a Russian brand of children clothing in the premium segment. The brand appeared in the Russian market in 2015 and secured there reliably owing to high quality handmade goods and compliance with the global trends.
The collection presented at MBFashionDay featured sequins all over the catwalk and the clothes. Most of the looks were monochrome, with a single bright acid color – fuchsia, lilac, maroon, red, green, or white. Standup collars and sleeve cuffs were decorated with sequins. Jersey clothes with knitted large braids, outer garments clothing with basque, eco-fur coats with ear-flapped caps. Fish-cut gowns looked interesting on young girls. We should specially mention the line of gala dresses for girls – velvet, sequin fabric, and ostrich feathers. The brand designers didn’t forget the boys, either, offering them bright colored leather asymmetric zip coats, colorful jackets, and suits. The show was crowned by a bouffant hooped dress made of green satin covered with black net. The lighting used during the show (violet and green circles on the catwalk) matched the collection colors. The brand designers also appeared on the podium wearing bright total looks.

IANIS CHAMALIDI is a Petersburg brand with interesting history. Ianis Chamalidi presented his first collection in 1993. Since then he worked on stage images of Petersburg Olympic medalists in figure skating, scenic projects, won the Designer of the Year title twice, and was highly appreciated by the foreign Mass Media.
His collection presented at MBFashionDay featured laconic and classic total black in the manner of the brand. Floor length relaxed fit clothes, light fabrics, transparent blouses, and mantles. Special focus was on details – headwear, face veils, silvery netted hood reminding of a medieval chainmail, a coat with “bird feathers” made of oil silk. Hairstyles elaborated the looks harmonically, changing from slightly waved to loose straight hair. During the show Neo-classic symphonic violin music was played as a background.
