Three words that describe Russian designer Igor Chapurin: simplicity, harmony, perfection.
“While I’m Russian, I think all the stereotypical authentic elements are growing old. People want modern, quality, and stylish clothes. You know, when I’m in France I always watch people – and the only ones you see dressed in high style are Russians. Europeans keep it simple and low-key.”
On monday he will be receiving one of the prestigious MC FASHION WEEK AWARD in Monaco. I will keep you posted about what is going on during the ceremony and publish his new fashion show (tuesday afternoon at the Musee Océanographique).
You can register here if you want to attend any of the “MC fashion week” fashion shows on tuesday next week !
Born in 1968 halfway between Moscow and St. Petersburg Igor Chapurin is one of the most successful Russian fashion designers, with boutiques worldwide and the first to expand his business to furniture, interior and exterior design. He even owns his own bar.
“My target client is a modern woman – she is in the office by day, and needs something stylish and practical, and at night she is attending a presentation, and needs an evening dress. My goal is to make versatile clothes, that just by changing a jacket for a cardigan you could turn an office outfit into an evening dress.”
Chapurin Couture opened its first boutique in Moscow in 1999. The same year, he took on jewelry design and costumes for theater performances.
On 2 October 2005 the CHAPURIN fashion house became the first Russian fashion brand to show its collection within the official schedule of Paris pret-a-porter week and now we are looking forward to welcoming him at the 3rd MC Fashion Week in Monaco!
