Russian ECo Week part 1


I think it's vital we protect our home. Not only the place you live in on bigger scale. I'm not a big talker about ecological matters - I am no guru in trying your best to live with eco-awareness and not someone who just discovered each of you can actually do something and is eager to pass on new knowledge. But I do what I can with little steps I am making everyday like not using paper as much as I can: no plastic bags, choosing recycled products, switching of water while brushing my teeth etc. But in terms of spreading the eco-awareness I do what I can do best: attending Russian Eco Week, listening to smart people talks, watching eco fashion shows (which is a topic I will show more closely) and showing it to you. This year Eco Fashion Week did not unfortunately fully happened but we still are able to see some part of it through Russia Eco Week. For example right after the opening ceremony general public and journalists seen the MKMM (the contest for young designers) showing their eco themed fashion shows! I was most impressed with number of ideas and clothes made from recycled components (I didn't fully understand what exactly was made of and what actually was recycled). Also I just have to highlight and especially mention collection made of dog fur. It must be so warm!

RU: Защита своего дома - необходимость. И не только то место, где ты живешь, но и нечто более, как я думаю. Я редко говорю на темы экологии, но не потому что они меня не волнуют, а потому что не являюсь ни гуру по вопросам осознанной экологичности жизни, ни неофитом, который только осознал важность проблемы и стремится поделиться знаниями. Но в повседневной жизни я делаю свои маленькие шажки постоянно: отсутствие пластиковых пакетов, приоритет преработанным материалам, контроль использования воды (например, во время чистки зубов) и так далее. Что касается распространения экологически этичной жизни я делаю то, что я могу делать лучше всего: посещаю мероприятия такие как Российская Экологическая Неделя, слушаю доклады, смотрю показы этичной моды (на этом я остановлюсь чуть ниже) и показываю это вам, мои читатели. В этом сезоне, к сожалению, полноценной Недели Экологической моды не случилось, однако часть ещё прошла в рамках Российской Экологической Недели у стен Кремля. Например, сразу после открытия заинтересованные в вопросах экологии жители города и журналисты видели показ в рамках конкурса молодых дизайнеров МКММ, который был посвящен экологии и этичной моде. Я была поражена количеством идей и одежды, сделанной из переработанных компоненов (не всегда, однако было полностью понятно, какие менно части выполнены из переработанных метериалов). Ещё я прямо-таки чувствую себя обязанной отметить коллекцию, сделанную из собачьей шерсти. Это должно быть так тепло!


















As for my outfit I picked a warm sweatshirt, warm pants, coat and a hat because it's already fall and spending an hour and a half taking photos almost without a motion is tricky if you want to stay healthy.
RU: Мой образ состоял из теплого свитера, теплых брюк, пальто и шляпы, потому что осень полностью вступила в свои права в Москве, а провести полтора часа, делая фотографии и наслаждаясь показом практически без движения, не так и просто, особенно, если ты заботишься о своё здоровье.




I was wearing:
Calvin Klein bag and sweatshirt
Uniqlo jeans
Mango coat
thriefted boots (from Amsterdam)
not branded (yet my favorite) cap

 

Have a nice day,

You do know I love theFabrika project. Even the bad weather can't stop me. Last stage of this event took part outdoors which affected the evening. During Samovarfest (presenting various regions of our bug counrty) and also on public holiday, day of Russia I had a chance to check out the lovely collections. There were 3 contest participants and a headliner.

Детские Мечты

I do love it when social and fashionable is combined. When fashion show is held for reason the fashion shines brighter. What is why I was so exited when I found out about fashion charity Maraphone 'Kids Dreams' ("Детские Мечты") I realized I couldn't miss it. Because it was all about kids dreams, orphan kids dreams which were made an outfit for by other kids from the whole Russia. So important. To make it real designer kids combined their forces with various kids fashion brands both focused primary on kids fashion and major brands with kids branches. Each look was unique. Also there were a lot of wonderful celebrities which contributed a lot the whole show both acting like models and making show with songs.

RU: Я люблю, когда модное и социальное объединены. Потому что когда показ мод сделан ради важной причины, мода сияет ярче. Поэтому когда я узнала про благотворительный фэшн-марафон "Детские мечты", я поняла, что про…

FollowTheFabrika I.VII

Today I'm here to tell you about wonderful event Follow The Fabrika. One more part of fab contest never failing to fill me with fashion joy. So good! It took part in Modul space which has lots of room to both enjoy the looks created by designers and models and discuss them with wonderful people gathered there. The designs were charming! The winner Ekaterina Volkova showed a very wearable collection which totally fits into my style. I'd love to wear her pieces for day to day life. Very nice choice of calm earthy tones. My personal best however was brand Kiritti by designer from Kazakhstan Sunkar Esmukhanov, charming vintage vibe, stunning accessories. I do want the whole collection mine and seriously planning on buying some of pieces for me. Alena Voronina and Pavel Metelin (brand Rd. Yoke) made a great job showing creative everyday looks for modern city girl (the collection look splendid in Modul interior). Kosheleva Olga's collection was very much complete - it could ful…
