A local and growing fashion week kicks off this week in St Petersburg, titled Aurora Fashion Week. Now in its third year, the show is new but showcases some of the newest talent on the Russian and International fashion scene.
The project is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and is located in the Museum of the Russian Academy of Art. Besides the catwalk, there will be 37 other fashion related events including conferences, presentations, and a fashion content to promote new designers in Russia.
Although the catwalk is by invitation only, many of the other events are free including several exhibitions such as the Adidas Fashion Run (adidas-running.ru).
