“Speed of Yellow” on the Streets of Moscow
Streaks of yellow and red filled the streets of Moscow in March, as DHL employees dressed in ballgowns designed with the company’s “Speed of Yellow” theme in mind pounded the pavement ahead of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia.
Accompanying our couriers on their local delivery routes, the models-for-a-day surprised package recipients with a fashion pop quiz – and the chance to win tickets to the debut showing of talented young designer Goga Sabekiya at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. The show, held on April 1 as part of the week’s “it” event series, attracted over 1,000 attendees, many of whom earned their spots by answering the models’ questions correctly.
Sabekiya designed the models’ gowns as part of a young designer competition held at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia in October, a competition that gave him a grant to show alongside two maestros from the Russian fashion industry – Slava Zaitsev and Tatyana Parfionova. While last autumn competitors had to create mini collections of 5-7 looks, this season Goga designed a full collection, which he called «Russia: Reload».

Sabekiya’s show wasn’t the only highlight from the Russian runways. With more than 70 designers from across the continent, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia was a bustling playground for Muscovite fashionistas ready to drink in the colors and styles on tap for Autumn/Winter 2013. It also provided the ideal launching pad for the next DHL designer competition, themed “DHL: 30 years in Russia.” Stay tuned for more details!
