At the end of March, Miroslava Duma's digital mag Buro24/7 invited me to attend Moscow's Cycles and Seasons Fashion Week. I was beyond excited to attend as it was my first time in Russia, and, it was an opportunity to spend some time with my favorite Russian street style icons. If Miroslava's meticulous personal style is any indication of her approach to hosting, then you know that the time I spent in the Russian capital was a well curated introduction to emerging talents like Vika Gazinskaya, Nina Donis and Alexander Terekhov, as well as an informed glimpse at the must see and taste of the city. Even the rain, snow and sleet that pounded the pavement that week couldn't slow Miro's team down; our hosts Sofia, Hanna and Ekaterina made sure we made it to all our appointments (even in mind-blowing traffic! Thanks girls, miss you like crazy. Thanks Miro, I can't wait to come back! Now, here are some of the images that I snapped for my Grazia.it Moscow Cycles and Seasons diary.
