Winzavod’s Wicked Halloween Party
This year, October 31 fell on a Friday night, setting the perfect stage for the Halloween celebrations that are becoming increasingly popular in Moscow. There were parties all around the city, as Muscovites continue the osvoyeniye of this holiday imported from the West — that is, the process of making Halloween their own. Among the shindigs in town was one at the Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art, organized for VIP clients by PR agency AbsolutPro. The hand-delivered invitations were hard to come by, presumably earmarked for Moscow’s most glamorous and beautiful. But who could tell? Everyone was in costume — from 19thcentury crinolines to nun’s habits and hussar’s uniforms.
