Rubber Boots on Auction in St. Petersburg RussiaSt. Petersburg’s Divina Harmonia design school hosted its second charity auction.
Rubber boots were up for auction, but they didn’t really look like typical rubber boots.
They were given a complete makeover by young, up-and-coming designers from St. Petersburg.
Kirill Kopylkov spent one week to design this pair of boots.
[Kirill Kopylkov, Designer]:
Vladimir Bukhinin, a notable designer from St. Petersburg, presented a more practical pair of boots. He likes Scottish plaid.
[Vladimir Bukhinin, Designer]:
In recent years, rubber boots have been made in bright colors. But in the past, they were less colorful.
A sample of couture rubber boots was presented by famous designer Philip Fissen.
[Philip Fissen, Designer]:
But prominent designers were not the only ones who pleased the audience. Up-and-coming designers and students also produced some impressive works.
This pair of student-designed boots are based on a wedding theme.
They were decorated with apples and crystals in a Russian style.
[Marina Skylskaya, President, Divina Harmonia Design School, St. Petersburg]:
And – some of the boots were sold.
[Anastasia Razhuk, Stylist]:
All proceeds from the sales will be donated for medical treatment of children from low-income families and orphanages.
