S'elections Moscow, part 1

 
I love fashion goes digital. I know it's safer, it gives opportunities to smaller designers to be on par with bigger designers, there no invitation only moments (which is kinda cool by the way if you have the invitation) but at the same time I love seeing it in real life, being able to touch and experience it. It feels so much different and I have to admit it is way more memorable. I watched the show online, I loved it, I sort of remember about it after awhile. I wanted a show or seen clothes in person, boom!, I clearly remember it even after sometime. I mean digitally you need to work way harder to impress me, to make me feel connected, to make them special. You see the invitation only moment, it makes you feel special about the brand, it makes a connection. During digital format anyone can come, see and go any moment. There is nothing special about it. Moreover you have so much content you want at least a glimpse of, you become flooded with fashion. In real life it takes hours to see several fashion shows and I assure you are dead beat after just 3 or 4. I once did 5 a day and it felt a lot like running a half marathon with PR (personal record, not public relations guy); it might be pretty cool but it is not something you can do every day. But with digital format: you don't have to wait, stand a lines, do your makeup and spend time to actually get to the venue. It saves up a bunch of time which you are willingly spend on more fashion shows. It is not hard to watch online fashion shows for 5 or even 6 hours in a row, I did it more than once. It feels like binge watching series or scrolling through Youtube. It gives you a lot less connection to content, it is very short and it fades super fast. That is why I really want fashion to stay offline as well. Online is cool (and I think we will soon wear digital clothes) but offline is much needed either, it is worth the money and effort you put in there.
Sorry for a huge into. I want to tell you about fashion event I have visited twice this week. It is S'elections Moscow by CPM. You know CPM quite well, they are here in Moscow for over 25 years and they do a great job making probably the best place for fashion professionals in Russia. Due to pandemic they wanted to make a new format: an exhibition made as heaven for buyers. And there is a great block for discussions and talks which I greatly admire and enjoy listening to. Below are some photos to give you general impression.
 



My outfit was warm. I don't know why but I felt very cold this morning and I was afraid I will get cold when coming back (I had a meeting after the exhibition so I arrived home after 10) so I wore a sweater. And I can not say I wasn't grateful for that, it actually felt very nice wearing it. I am wearing a dress, not a skirt here and I admit of using the belt hack to make my sweater look neat. I think I kinda nailed it. My bag is roomy enough to accommodate whatever I needed for a day and it is also of wonderful pastel pink color. Converse are make to walk a lot I believe. And as there was no rain in the forecast I enjoyed rocking some white shoes as well



I was wearing:
Maje dress (as a skirt)
H&M sweater
Converse shoes
Kenzo bag
Monki headband
c/o Bornpretty earring
c/o Faberlic paw necklace

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  14. What I like the most in going digital is you got to do as many tasks as possible at the same. Well, what can we do, we are in the midst of the pandemic and we neet to follow health protocols always.

  17. It's great that things have found a way to move online but you are right, when you are there, see it in person, it's different.

  18. Man, I wish I could travel to places like this now! However, staying put until COVID is resolved and things return back to normal — at least in terms of travelling — is important for now.

  19. I think you did nail it! Such a cute outfit.

  24. The pandemic has caused everyone to think on their feet and get creative. That is about the only part of it that I like. I feel seeing it online is better than nothing at this point. I'm actually attending a concert from one of my favorite bands online in a couple of weeks.

  33. It's great to get some ideas when we get to see something virtually. But I am a person of texture. I need to touch, to see how the fabrics flow real time.

  35. Looks like a great event! I would have loved this in my former life when I worked in the fashion industry.

  36. I can definitely see why there would be a significant difference in the experience between attending a fashion show in person and seeing it all online. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised to see a rise in smaller designers embracing the digital option as we move forward. It helps to break down some of the barriers and challenges that they face.

    1. yes it's true. I agree: digital is a great addition, not a substitute.

  37. Your outfit is lovely. I love everything you throw together. I love your shoe more.

  38. I think online is great if you have a particular manufacturer you like and know their sizing. But I hate getting things online and finding out their sizing doesn't fit right/well.

    1. I feel you. It doesn't even matter if they make returns easy and everything: I wanted this particular item to enjoy, not something else.

  39. It looks quite a fashionable scene and I had no idea! Now that we are restricted from traveling, all the online technologies can still keep us informed on the latest industry info and fashion trends - thanks to that. :)

  41. You look so smart and elegant. I love the outfit. Yes fashion is now digital, but I really love live shopping. The feel of the product and trying them on is different.

  42. That outfit looks amazing on you. I love digital fashon, saves me time and avoids the crowds

  43. Nice collection! You look great on that sweater.

  44. Glad that they were able to shift to Digital format already. I agree with you that the bright side of the new normal is that it takes less effort to watch a fashion show online. It may not have the same feel but I still love it.

  45. Love your outfit! The sweater tuck does look immaculate - I've never managed to get a hang of it. Your bag is making me want to go shop - it's so pretty!

  46. I can see both the good and bad of having fashion shows be digital. I hope nothing in-person is ever fully replaced by digital, and that is something that worries me. We're already divided enough as humans. But it is awesome that smaller designers have a chance to really be involved and have their designs in front of a bigger audience. I see it being a great addition, but not a substitution. Hopefully that is how digital things are treated as we go forward post-covid.

  47. Great outfit, I love the bag especially. As you said, it's roomy enough to be able to fit everything you need. This is very important to me because I'm always carrying around more stuff than I should.

  48. What a cute outfit! I love the different things they are using for fashion

Circus

Hello! Last time I went to the circus 9 years ago and also in March. You probably wonder how come I remember it so well. Actually we went to the circus thanks to my parents the day we applied to get married (in Russia you had to (or still have I am not sure) apply to get your marriage registered two months in advance). My own parents been super worried and nervous back in their day and they celebrate the application day even more than actual wedding date. I think it's super adorable. That's why when I had an opportunity to visit circus I immediately said say. I was provided tickets to the circus of dancing fountains 'Aquamarine' Moscow by 55555 club. It was super awesome because not only I got the ticket for myself I had more to share. So I took my husband and my sis' family to the circus. They say kids love it the most so I just had to take my 5 year old flexible niece and my suddenly very grown up 12 year old niece with me. By the way, the latter shocked me being

Oil museum VDNH

  Talking about fun stuff. My husband did several museums projects and he is about to do some more. I am very excited because a) it's fun b) it's extra money to enjoy whatever c) I get to go to the museums because we need to. That was the main reason to visit the museum of oil located in VDNH, Moscow. And it's also super close to the climbing center we have a pass to. It was so much fun! The whole museum is interactive and you get to touch, move, look, put on or scan everything. It gives a lot of information on usage of oil (and it's actually a lot wider than I have thought before). Shows a lot of information regarding actual mining and transportation of oil as well manufacturing with oil. I l absolutely loved the time capsule in the museum and information from interactive book with usage of oil in various ancient cultures (the book it self is not that good by the way, they show text information with a flow, text changes but it is self for a very low reading speed, it i

Kids Fashion Week

ENG: Yesterday on the 8th of March I celebrated Women's Day the best way possible: I attended a Fashion Show. And to make it even more special and beautiful it was a Kids Fashion Show or fashion shows even because I could see a lot of brands presented the collections during the event. I have admit producer center 'Grani' outdid themselves. It took place in Central Kids' Department Store, beautiful and famous old building filled with everything your kid might desire. RU: Вчера в день 8 марта, я отметила Международный Женский День самым лучшим образом для меня: я посетила показ мод. И даже ещё лучше: это был показ детской моды в рамках Kids Fashion Week, самой полной и отвественно неделе детской моды. Надо признать, продюсерский центр "Грани" превзошли даже смелые ожидания, работая над этим праздником моды. Показов было множество, равно как и брендов, представивших свои коллекции на любой случай для маленьких модников и модниц. Проходило это мероприятие в Цент
