Rusiko Ready-to-Wear Fall-winter 2012-2013

As one of Zaitsev’s alumni (until now working in the team of the collective brand ‘Laboratory 13’, and now under her own brand RUSIKO), Rusudan Kobyakova, without any self-consciousness, decided to create a Western interpretation of the image of a Muslim woman. This resulted in a flamboyant, yet feminine, collection that touched the hearts of numerous women - spectators of the show, among which, for example, was one of the best contemporary opera singers Khibla Gerzmava.

It is hard to distinguish the exact methods of expression by Rusiko when you see the entire picture. The brightest colours, silhouettes with lowered waist line, oriental decorative elements, accessories and variations around the theme of a classic turban all together create an unearthly, eclectic picture of a woman, oriental in its spirit, but Western in its performance.
