eBay Hits Russia
Stylist Oksana (pictured above) curated a collection of clothes from eBay and presented the looks at a runway event held for the city’s finest Fashion-philes. Having launched approximately a year ago in Russia, eBay is now a staple in the fashion loving nation and we’re excited to grow in the region. According to Forbes, Moscow has the largest community of billionaires in the world, which means Luxury is alive and well in the fast growing city.
I was honored to DJ the event to a room that… [MORE] began cheerfully moving early in the night. After that, I ducked out with Tumblr’s omnipresent Valentine Uhovski to do the Moscow party rounds. The city is gorgeous with hidden creative cafe’s, underground art galleries, and regal architecture. The whole Chanel family had converged into town to launch Karl Lagerfeld’s The Little Black Jacket exhibit. It was crème de le crème attendance ranging from Vanessa Paradis to Milla Jovovich, who after greeting the crowd in perfect Russian, busted out a rock set with her band. Rocker model Alice Dellal cheered near the stage in one of the best dressed rooms I’ve ever seen.
There is a new fashion icon added to my list of faves (filed beside Daphne Guinness of course). Her name is Uliana Sergeenko, who gracefully stirred through the Chanel party with Russia’s two other “It Girls”, Elena Perminova and Polina Kitsenko (pictured above by Karl Lagerfeld portrait). On my way out of the country, I swung through the Kremlin to pay respects to the buildings that provided so much historical context, including St Basil’s Church. I nabbed a chic little Russian Doll just to remind me of the whirlwind journey through the glorious capital city. Buh-Bye Russia, I’ll be back soon.
