Fashion historian Djurdja Bartlett (London College Of Fashion, University Of The Arts, London) presents a panel discussion featuring Moscow-based designers Asiya Bareeva and Artur Lomakin, photographer Turkina Faso and London-based writer and curator Anastasiia Fedorova.
This discussion is followed by a free drinks reception in the studio, where looks by Artur Lomakin and Asiya Bareeva will be on display.
Termed ‘the post-Soviet aesthetic’ by the style press, a recent phenomenon has seen Soviet iconography and 1990s Russian streetwear assimilate into high-end fashion collections in London, Paris and Milan. This discussion explores the current climate for making and a new generation of artists and designers that grew up in the shadow of the Soviet era, seeking to define what a ‘post-Soviet aesthetic’ might truly be.
