David Koma's hour of triumph
If you ask about russian designers there are not so many names that I think worth to be mentioned though there are several: Alena Akhmadullina(fairytales are the main subjects of all her collections) Denis Simachev(he made a trend out of traditional russian patterns), Alexander Terekhov(he makes very feminine, beautiful dresses and reminds me of Diane von Furstenberg)-till recently only these designers I considered to be really outstanding and competitive with foreign designers.Two days ago I was watching MTV EMA in Berlin on TV and when I saw Beyonce getting her award I just cried WOW! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that she was wearing a dress by David Koma! He wasn't very famous before that and I think that it was an hour of triumph for him. Beyonce is such popular person and she undoubtedly can make a name for him. I'm really happy for David because he is so young and talented and he is from my country(that's very nice) and from my city(Saint-Petersburg) and he deserves this fame. Before his graduate collection(he studied at Saint Martin's) from wich was this dress he didn't have his special style that could make his collections recognizable but this collection is really a breakthrough. That dress was also shown in the last issue of V magazine Spain and that was also a pleasant surprise for me. I'm very happy that russian designers are entering the international arena because we need people that we can be proud of and David is one of them. I must admit that his graduate collection was great but I like even more his new spring/summer 10 collection- It's amazing how he works with colors and shapes! I would definetely buy one of these dresses for myself. All designres that are trendy now should be beware of David because I'm sure-very soon he will be very serious rival for them.Remember my words!
NB!P.S. Oh! Forgot to mention that Megan Fox,Lady Gaga and Sharyl Cole were also rocking David Koma's dresses! Lucky boy!:) It's cool to see your creation on Lady Gaga- she knows how to make any piece of clothes a hot stuff!
