The Russian capital recently held its first ever fashion week, featuring a host of talented Russian designers. Here are the outfits and snaps you don't want to miss!

Moscow now has its own fashion attraction. The first Moscow Fashion Week shined between June 20-26, 2022 and was a week-long extravaganza that featured 69 catwalk shows, 120 of the best Russian fashion designers and an impressive business program. Catwalks were arranged across the city, with special note to those in Zaryadye park next to the Kremlin and on its floating bridge over the Moskva River. Relive it all with our photo report below. 

The fashion week was opened by the Russian fashion world’s ‘coryphaeus’, Slava Zaitsev and his outdoor catwalk. 

A huge indoor runway program was also held throughout the Moscow Fashion Week. Below are daring street-style models from the ‘DAS’ brand, inspired by the Kupala Night Slavic holiday.

And below is a tribute to Soviet knitwear fashion by Victoria Andreyanova. 

Meanwhile, Sasha Gapanovich went for a romantic winter fantasy theme.

Designer IANIS CHAMALIDY presented his conceptual author’s fashion.

 COSHÈ fashion company and their minimalist silhouettes were also on display.

The most impressive catwalks were held outdoors. The collection of famous Russian designer Alena AKHMADULLINA was showcased along the Moskva River embankment.

Graduates of the METRICS Branding and Design Academy showed off their fashion vision in Zaryadye Park, with the Kremlin in the distance.

Space fashion: Roscosmos (Russia’s Space Agency) showed off a collaboration with the DNK.Russia fashion brand in the VDNKh exhibition park.

CHAPURIN displayed his haute couture collection ‘Anthology’ in front of the ‘Friendship of Peoples’ fountain in VDNKh park.

The Valentin Yudashkin show on the “floating” bridge in Zaryadye Park (complete with the St. Basil's Cathedral in the background) was a great final act for the Moscow Fashion Week.
