And, of course, I am overwhelmed with pride that our collection is presented at this largest and most prestigious international exhibition.

In my collection, in addition to the covers, I used a raincoat and a decor made of pieces of leather.
Alexandra Vinogradova (Bobrova): "When creating the collection, our project managers played a significant role, I observe a huge leap in my professional development. It was the first time we worked as a team. In her collection, in addition to covers, she used completely different objects and materials: brushes, spray cans, masks, sticks; she was looking for inspiration, including in stroymarkets. Thanks to the ArtFuture Design School, this is not the first time I have participated in competitions and exhibitions abroad, the biggest impression was made by a trip to Japan, where I also went from School. Their fashion design is space! And the designer constantly needs to follow the latest trends and trends.
