«Modny Desant» Fashion-Show
05.02.2005 17:16

«Modny Desant» Fashion-Show International creative pret-a-porter «Modny desant» festival (name of the festival can be translated as Fashion Landing Force) opened its VI season last week of April.

«Modny desant» is the largest international fashion event in the Northern-Western region of Russia, it is usually held twice a year in the beginning of each fashion-season. The aim of the festival is to introduce the most interesting designers’ names and projects over the whole world to the public.

Every festival has started from the concept….

The concept of «Modny desant» festival of 2002, called «Modny desant from Petersburg to Moscow», was to destroy fashion-foundations and to oppose itself to official fashion streams, and the show took place in the close waiting hall of Moscow Railway Station. The tradition to occupy halls, very unusual for fashion-shows was continued: long, narrow hall of the main University building, House of Military Officers, St. Petersburg palaces.

This year the festival was a long-term event. On the 1st of February www.mdfest.net internet-portal highlighting all the events of the festival was opened for public, inviting everybody to take part in vote for the best radio-partner, best producer and best designer. And still you have chance to choose the best model, give advice to festival organisers and discuss all the topics in forum. That’s why this year the show is called interactive. The festival program also included fashion shows and parties in different places of St.Petersburg and lectures on the history and theory of fashion.

The main fashion-show of «Modny desant» festival took place in Pribaltiyskay hotel on the 29th of April and it was arranged as a kind of competition for young designers.

All participants agreed that now there is no mode in its former sense, no common tend or general direction, only individual style. "Two torn towers" fashion designers' duet working in so called Bourgeois Punk style declared that they create their models for bourgeois tired of their bourgeois clothes. Fresh Melon for Jet Set showed unique bright collection for night life, club parties of Jet Set type. Yia Yots combined motifs of different most romantic epochs in her collection for ladies in constant "simply divine" image.
