To coincide with London Fashion Week Pushkin House will present a panel discussion featuring three acclaimed Russian designers Dasha Pomerantseva, Daria Razumikhina, Tatiana Ashakova, personal stylist Natasha Vinnikova and founder of a sustainable fashion project U DIG Daria Dergunova. The event will be chaired by writer, actor and fashionista Gavino di Vino.

The participant will discuss such topics as fashion vs tradition: what attracts the world’s leading designers to the Russian folk motifs and patterns (Valentino, Dolce & Gabanna, Ralph Lauren)?

How can traditional craftsmanship survive in the modern world?

Western influences on designers and consumers in Russia including the rise of street fashion; what are the new trends?

The panel discussion will be followed by a mini fashion show featuring the work of the three designers, and an opportunity to purchase clothes and accessories from a pop-up shop created for the evening.
