Russian singer made his debut as a fashion designer and opened its collection of fashion Week Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia season spring-summer of 2017.
Vika Tsyganova joined the ranks of celebrities who have decided to try their hand in the fashion industry. About the design ambitions of the stars became known in 2004, but only 12 years later, she decided to establish their own brand, Tsiganova.
The star has arranged a Grand presentation of the collection called “Imperial style” on the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia spring-summer 2017 at the hotel “Metropol”. Guests of the presentation were the first to assess the collection called “Imperial style”. It includes coats, dresses, jackets – all with the use of fur, cashmere, hand embroidery, silk, brocade, crystals and semiprecious stones. Style collection recalls the traditions of the Russian costume: all dresses are decorated with embroidered flowers and birds.
Vick Tsyganov told Woman’s Day about where she drew inspiration during its creation and the difficulties faced.

Our collection is cumulative. This is the “Imperial style”. Returning to history: the Kremlin in Russia were built by the Italians, the Navy did the Dutch, fabrics brought from Persia Sables were caught in Siberia. That is our history and I was inspired. I also really like the words of Fyodor Dostoyevsky that beauty will save the world. But the beauty today is very small. And I want this beauty arrived. I “collected” my collection for twenty years. Every thing in her is more than a season spring-summer or autumn-winter. This is art objects. This broadcast entity, the identity of Russian and Russian culture. But, again, that our culture collectively. For example, the idea of “Magic bird”, from old French engravings. All embroidery is done by hand, to create one thing work three to five people: furriers, seamstresses, embroiderers, and your humble servant.
