Moscow Fashion Week
From October 22 to 27, Gostiny Dvor hosted the 20th annual Moscow Fashion Week. With the support of the Moscow city government, the event brought together top designers from Russia and abroad to show their new collections for the spring-summer 2009 season. In addition, to the established names that already loom large on the Russian fashion scene such as Valentin Yudashkin, Slava Zaitsev, Masha Tsigal, and Alexander Terekhov, the event also featured young talents such as Andre Tan and Victoria Savvateeva’s MaiNaim. The participation of such celebrities as pop singer Dima Bilan and ice skater Yevgeny Plyushchenko in the role of models helped make Moscow Fashion Week the focal point of the season.
