Russia has delivered a new set of style icons over the last few years. From Miroslava Duma, founder of Buro 24/7, to designer Vika Gazinskaya, these style icons have paved the way for a new era of Russian fashion. And just as Italy has its Blonde Salad and New York City has its Man Repeller, Russia also has its own set of rising blogging superstars, the foremost of which we discovered sitting front row at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia: Sofi Eliseeva of Sophie’s Avenue.
Part blogger, model, stylist, personal shopper, and TV host, we followed Sofi during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia, stopped by her home to dig through her closet of colorful clothing, buried ourselves in her collection of bags, and got to know a bit more about the girl who you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for at New York, Milan, and Paris Fall Fashion Week.
