Russia's most honored fashion designer, Slava Zaitsev, will open RFW with his haute couture collection dedicated to the 100-year anniversary of Dyagilev's Seasons in Paris. Sergey Dyagilev was the world-famous ballet impresario and founder of Ballets Russes which conquered Paris at the beginning of the 20th century. Slava Zaitsev is a true Soviet/russian fashion legend, dubbed the Red Dior by the international media due to his faerie collections that so often punctured the Iron Curtain that once separated the Soviet Union from the western world. Slava started his career in the 1960s and still makes fashion headlines and is currently a host on the highly rated television program Fashion Verdict. 'slava Zaitsev is over 70, but he works harder than youngsters, says Alexander Shumsky, President of Russian Fashion Week. Dozens of renowned Russian designers came through his Fashion Lab, the best fashion school in Russia. We are proud to have his anniversary collection for the RFW opening.
