“By participating in the IFS LOCAL / GLOBAL project, Russia has an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its creative potential and present Russian cultural heritage and current trends in fashion at the international level. People’s craftsmanship inspires new generation of designers Russians to promote national identification and form a new take on contemporary Russian fashion, “said Alexander Shumsky, executive chairman of the Russian fashion board and chairman of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Russia.
