Fashion Shows of BRICS+ Fashion Summit – Day 2
On Day 2 of the BRICS+ Fashion Summit, catwalk shows were arranged at three venues by brands from Turkey, China and Russia. The Parking Gallery of Zaryadye Park hosted a show of the Turkish brand Arzu Kaprol, the headliner of Istanbul Fashion Week. The Chinese brand of non-conventional classic wear 陳宇CHNNYU presented their collection at the State Historical Museum (GIM). The Russian State Library (RSL) hosted a show of Alena Akhmadullina.
Arzu Kaprol (Turkey)

This is a Turkey-based fashion designer. In 1995, she founded her design studio, and since then she’s been doing a great job. In particular, she became a trailblazer in clothing technologies. In 2021, Arzu Kaprol became Director at Bilişim Vadisi Wearable Technologies and YASTED – the companies that focus on hi-tech fashion. In 2022, she designed protective clothing for the Turkish scientists who joined an expedition to the Antarctica. Today, she is still referring to the futuristic concepts, which can be seen in the collection she brought up the catwalk at BRICS+ Fashion Summit. Arzu Kaprol plays with architectural shapes and experiments with models and materials. The visitors saw lots of leather garments, which accentuated all the beauties of a female body. However, the collection embraced semi-transparent materials, velvet, and tinsel, too. The show was completed with few lighter looks – a volatile dress from pleated fabric and some bold garments with fur and animal prints.


陳宇CHNNYU (China)

The China-based 陳宇CHNNYU was established in Xiamen in 2014. Since the very start, Chen Yu has been winning in all kinds of high-level competitions, including China’s best womenswear designer and China Jinding Award nominated designer. The collection showcased during BRICS+ Fashion Summit was specially designed by 陳宇CHNNYU for the occasion. The designer focused on classic silhouettes but heated them up with trendy colors, prints, and textures. The visitors were shown oversize puff overcoats, wideleg jeans in vintage style, and weathered denim jackets. Rough looking materials and oversize models in this series by 陳宇CHNNYU go perfectly well with volatile feminine dresses and light tops, featuring romantic sky prints. This is a brand of modern classic, as the mass media has put it. 陳宇CHNNYU designs everyday clothes that look vibrant and match the global fashion trends.


Alena Akhmadullina
The designer took the guests and visitors of her new show to a fairyland, where they were demonstrated all the new looks. The collection embraced both usual denim and fancy dresses with sophisticated drapes and elements. The designer of Alena Akhmadullina offers her audience a sparkling game of bold shapes and a fusion of unexpected styles in a single look. There were all those pearl-embroidered dresses with fluffy feathers, which seemed to float in the air, and cool pants suits with pleated tunics – all of them tempted you to stop everything you’re doing and go to the seaside.
