Russian designer Alexandr Terekhov recently held a fashion show inside a Moscow Metro station.
In 1997 Alexander McQueen’s collection for Givenchy was presented in the depot of Sokol station.
This station was chosen because it is the least busy in the city.
The interior of the station matches its name: the station walls are decorated with panels depicting Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky and characters from his novels and stories.
It is not the first time that the Moscow Metro has been a part of fashion life.
It was not fully closed, but the show area was partitioned off. However, subway passengers could see the models passing by.
Alexandr Terekhov’s collections usually focus on women, but there are some men’s outfits too. His latest women’s collection mostly consists of dresses, as well as tops, skirts, and jackets.
In 2009, Style.com recommended the work of young Muscovite Alexander Terekhov. Angelina Jolie, Misha Barton and Dania Minogue have each been spotted in his dresses.
The clothing was made of shimmering fabric, adorned with sparkling gemstones, seemingly inspired by cosmic themes and futuristic art.
