3 Important Russian Fashion Designers




3 Important Russian Fashion Designers

Celebrating the premiere of new episodes of Shattered Destinies, a Ukrainian drama that follows the story of a woman who dreams to become a successful fashion designer, we are happy to present you with three iconic Russian fashion designers. These artists have become some of the most recognizable faces of the industry in their homeland and are now famous worldwide.

Gosha Rubchinskiy

He is the most famous face of modern Russian fashion and there’s a reason for his iconic status. Born in Moscow in 1984, Gosha attended the Moscow College of Technology and Design. By introducing the fashion world to the image of a Russian chav from the suburbs, he became known for his understated aesthetic that mixes sportswear with intelligent tailoring, a look that has fast established the designer as a major player on the streetwear scene, as well as an industry figure. He has collaborated with brands like Adidas and Comme des Garçons.

Valentin Yudashkin

Also born in Moscow but 2 decades before Rubshinskiy, Valentin Yudashkin is considered the first post-Soviet designer to bring a contemporary Russian look to the international fashion world, wowing critics with sumptuous theatricality as well as wearable styles. He is also considered as the most famous Russian designer of all time and is the only Russian designer to be bestowed with membership to the prestigious Syndicate of High Fashion in Paris and is a National Artist of Russia. His designs have been exhibited in museums such as the Musée de la mode et du textile in Paris, the California Museum of Fashion in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the State Historical Museum in Moscow.

Alexander Viktorovich Belov

One more Muscovite in the list, Alexander was born in 1988 and studied at the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas but soon started working with teachers from the Moscow State Institute of Culture. He studies international experience in the field of fashion under the program of the Italian Istituto Marangoni. His sky-rocketing career has made him a multiple winner of international awards in the fashion and style including the “Stylist of the Year” award and the “Fashion Expert of the Year” award at the European Fashion Union Awards at Milan Fashion Week.
