The final gala show of the Moscow Fashion Week was held at the RUSSIA EXPO - designers-students of the Kosygin Russian State University, the Moscow Art and Industry Institute, the National Institute of Design and the METRICS Online Academy of Branding and Design presented their collections.

The models presented the collections of young designers under the live performance of the OTYKEN ethnic band, which includes representatives of the indigenous peoples of Russia: Chulym, Ket, Selkup, Khakass and Dolgan. OTYKEN holds concerts all over the world, the band's compositions have been highly appreciated by Iggy Pop, Chris Brown, Erykah Badu, Armin van Buuren and DJ Snake, and in 2022 the band's song called Genesis was nominated in Global Spin - a Grammy project.

"Moscow Fashion Week is a very important contribution to the development of Russia. The designers have done a great job. We want to wish them prosperity. Youth in our country is developing very rapidly," said OTYKEN member Muna.

The joint fashion show, during which students of Kosygin Russian State University presented their works, is largely connected with Russian culture. The works are devoted to the era of Ivan the Terrible, the transformation of culture in the early XXI century, Russian crafts and space, said Russian designer, head of the Costume Design Department of the Kosygin Russian State University Sergei Sysoev.

"Today marks the debut of the sophomores of the author's master's program, where young designers from all over Russia are studying. For two and a half years they have been busy writing dissertations, researching their topic, understanding who they are as fashion artists. Most of the projects are based on Russian cultural identity - I think this is paramount now. We need to vividly show how we differ from the rest, to demonstrate our uniqueness. This is definitely the future of Russian fashion," said Sergei Sysoev.

The show was remarkable for dramatic images and the use of original prints. The show featured mini-collections that included shining dresses with fluorescent patterns, quilted jackets with eye-catching patches, multicolored naive images reminiscent of folk toys, avant-garde cocoon dresses, coats and jackets with shining metallic decorations, and snow-white sets reminiscent of the Swan Princess, trimmed with feathers and lace.

Moscow Art and Industry Institute presented 30 best looks from the winter semester show. The show was filled with models in a variety of styles, from more casual to avant-garde. Trendy closet elements included corsets, cargo pants, metallic skirts and tight-fitting tops, including grunge style. They were complemented by original design solutions: tight dress with shaped cut-outs, spectacular "spacesuit", scarlet tiered dress with torn edges, hyper voluminous white bomber, black lacquered leather cocoon dress. The show ended with models making bold exits, showcasing the clothes not as an everyday closet, but as a separate art form.

"Now we are presenting our students, each one of them is great in their own way. They themselves teach us new things - they bring fabrics, accessories from all over the world. The things presented here are the quintessence of our work, which is a surprise even for us," said Alexei Egorov, rector of the Moscow Art and Industry Institute.

 The team of young designers of the National Institute of Design showed mini-collections of original informal things, adapted, however, to everyday life. Models in denim dresses and overalls with accent stitching with contrasting threads and hand dyeing; futuristic sets in black, gray and silver colors with soft folds and draperies appeared on the catwalk. The keynote of the show was the total black looks - practical, but with special accent details. Large eyelets, ties and asymmetry made the show interesting and memorable.

Students of the young METRICS Online Academy of Branding and Design demonstrated confident work with color and shape, as well as with complex textures of materials. The group show included both fantasy looks and everyday original models. The central outfits of the show were a metallized dress with numerous decorative details, a bright leather jacket worn over a catsuit, sculptural jackets made of colored leather, tops with airy floral decorations, neon raincoat, snow-white asymmetric maxi-dress with draperies and bright scarlet dress with flying fabric on the back.
