RIGA FASHION WEEK: April 2 – 6, 2013
- where on April 2 – 6 the fall/winter 2013/14 collections by the best fashion designers from Latvia and special guests from neighbouring countries will be presented to the public. The RIGA FASHION WEEK includes fashion shows, exhibitions, parties and presentations – the best of Latvian fashion today.
The RIGA FASHION WEEK keeps on discovering new names not only among designers, but also among other experts working in the fashion industry – photographers, stylists and models. For the first time the image of the RFW was created by a Latvian photographer Natalia Berezina. Natalia Berezina is a professional photographer since 2005, basically specialising in fashion photography, she cooperates with the leading agencies in Latvia and Lithuania, as well as Milan, London and New York. The photo which became the image of this season’s RFW was created in cooperation with a stylist Evita Ormane and a model Laura Savicka (model agency „2bmodels”) (dress „Mist”, sweater „Liene Zeiliša”).
The name of the styling which includes the image of the RFW is „Dаrk Angel”. It is about a fragile, gentle and defenceless, but at the same time unapproachable and even fairly dangerous woman who knows what she wants from life and how to achieve it. The light image on the dark background, combination of textures, lightning solution – all this underlines contrast and discrepancy of female nature.
„I am very glad that my work became the image of the RIGA FASHION WEEK. That means a certain responsibility for me and gives a chance to be a part of one of the most important fashion events in Latvian fashion – RIGA FASHION WEEK. The RFW is a great event which every time gives a prove that there are many talented designers in our country,” the author of this season’s RFW image, photographer Natalia Berezina, says.
Elena Strahova, the president of the Baltic Fashion Federation and the main producer of the RIGA FASHION WEEK about the coming Fashion week: „We are very glad that throughout already 18 seasons we can help local designers providing them a platform for presentation of their works, to please the public by beautiful shows and interesting events, to discover new names, thereby, contributing to the development of the fashion industry in our region. This RIGA FASHION WEEK will be a one more striking event in Riga cultural life.”
