Aurora Fashion Week Russia is rapidly becoming a must-follow international fashion platform and has already welcomed such prominent designers as Manish Aurora, Mark Fast, David Koma, Mary Katrantzou, and last year, in partnership with DEPESHA, Custo Barcelona.“St. Petersburg has historically enjoyed a reputation as country’s most cosmopolitan city, a haven for people open to new ideas in arts and culture. I believe Thom Browne’s presentation will not only be a season’s highlight of the Russian fashion scene, but also will help Russians to be more open minded. Thanks to this partnership with Depesha, the city will be able to offer the whole spectrum of impressions from the classics of the Hermitage and legendary performing arts venues to contemporary avant-garde,” said Artem Balaev, the CEO of Aurora Fashion Week. In addition to his own label, Thom Browne is engaged in several collaborations. Since 2007 he has been designing the capsule collection Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers for men and women, as well as a line of men’s jewelry at Harry Winston. Most recently, Moncler Gamme Bleu designed by Browne debuted at Men’s Fashion Week in Milan in January 2009.
