Support Russian-American designer Leonid Gurevich's collection debut at the Aurora Fashion Week Russia.
I have been invited to present my Fall/Winter 2012-13 fashion collection at the Aurora Fashion Week in St. Petersburg, Russia in April 2012.
What a thrill to be making my international debut there following such special guests as Mark Fast, David Koma, Mary Katrantzou and others! I need your help and I want to share this wonderful process and this special moment with you!
The illustrations, the patterns, the cutting and fitting and sewing… The process is well underway. I dedicate this collection to the late Ludmila Gurchenko, one of Russia’s most beloved legends of screen and stage and a true style icon. She appeared in my dresses at many of her performances. It was an honor to be a part of her creative legacy. To show this collection in her beloved St Petersburg would be a dream come true.
I need your help to complete and present the collection in a manner befitting its extraordinary Muse.
My sponsors, DEPESHA Russian Lifestyle Magazine and AURORA Fashion Week Russia are helping with organization and will handle the presentation in St. Petersburg, Russia. I am grateful for their support. However, additional funds are needed to secure some of the desired fabrics and accessories to finalize the looks as well as to bring my much needed staff to ensure a successful runway show.
Your contributions will go towards making this dream come true!
Please take a look at what I am happy to offer in return for your generosity in addition to my deepest gratitude:
