VDNH to Host Exhibition entitled "Glamour of the 80s. From the Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation Collection"

On 5 December in Hydrometeorology Pavilion No. 16, a popular TV host and fashion expert will present a collection dedicated to the time of brilliance and glamour, the era of shoulder pads and enormous sleeves. There are more than 50 clothing models and about a hundred accessories in a corresponding style: shoes, handbags and jewellery. The exposition also has photographs and magazines from the era.

The 1980s were a time of active development of glamorous trends in modern fashion, the domination of elegant lines, shiny fabrics and expressive silhouettes, accentuated by shoulder pads. All the listed features of this bright decade will appear in all their diversity for the visitors to Pavilion No.16 at VDNH at the Glamour of the 80s Exhibition, which demonstrates the wealth, brilliance and triumph of haute couture houses.

The fashion of the 80's is flashy, catchy, provocative and at the same time incredibly beautiful and impressive. Therefore, fashion history experts will find a lot of bright elements in the presented collection that have stood the test of time and are being put to creative use in contemporary modern fashion.

Alexandre Vassiliev, fashion historian: "This for sure was an era when a woman was considered the ruler of the Earth. Here you will see models from the house of Chanel, Dior, Ungaru and Yves Saint Laurent. Fashion repeats itself every 25 years. Thirty years have now passed since that time, and we see in it only beautiful, nostalgic and wonderful things".

At the exhibition, fashion lovers will see a unique collection of fashionable clothes from the 1980s, created by the world's leading fashion designers: Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Pierre Balmain, Claude Montana, Oleg Cassini, Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto.
