I studied marketing in school and found that the most interesting aspect for me was the movement of products and services into different international markets. Last week I caught an article in the New York Times about the rise of the Russian Fashion Pack. I really liked the insight that Anya Ziourova, the fashion director of Tatler Russia, provided on the change Russia experienced from a closed to open country and the impact that has had on the quickly evolving fashion industry. All of the women have a unique fashion sense and one that feels distinctly Russian while being globally current.
Right after I read the article I received an email from Charlotte Olympia on her pre-fall collection: With Love, From Russia. I have a feeling any of the Russian Fashion Pack ladies would wear this collection and that Russia is an established player in the fashion economy.
