Reporting live from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia


In late October, I went to Moscow to report on Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia, a fairly new addition to a world’s worth of international fashion weeks. In some ways, it felt totally familiar to New York Fashion Week — the event space possessed the same club-meets-car-show-meets-industry-conference vibe that the shows at Lincoln Center had. It was different in pretty much every other aspect. Here’s what I wrote while I was there:
