On 10 September the Moscow zoo will turn into a catwalk.
Recently the zoo opened a new art space, Sodepa, which hosts exhibitions, lectures, and now the fashion shows. It was here in the city Day will start an unusual social action in favor of nature conservation.
Young Russian designers Alena Rubinstein and Tatiana Lukashova a month before the show was invited to the zoo to inspire you. When creating their collections, the artists relied on the image of the favorite animal. And, of course, in the manufacture of clothing used only natural fabrics, faux fur – everything that does not harm our brothers smaller. The curator of the project was organized by the Russian stylist and designer Vladislav Lisovets.
“In fact, we often neglect that surrounds us,” says Vlad Lisovets. — Today each of us needs to spend part of my life, to save all living things. We are preparing an incredibly beautiful show, and I hope that after it at the sight of the growing tree or animal you will have to spread that warm body.”
“Environmental fashion originated in the seventies of the XX century, when the negative consequences of the technological revolution has turned into a real threat of ecological disaster, – says acting Director General of “Moscow zoo” Svetlana Akulova. The answer to this was the manufacture of clothing from natural raw materials, without the use of harmful chemicals and emissions that pollute the environment. These clothes can be called ethical because it is produced in harmony with nature, in full respect of the balance of interests of humans and animals.
