Craving // Russian Style Inspiration Edition
I'm always looking for new and fresh fashion inspiration. About a year or so ago, I started following Miroslava Duma as she launched her online magazine Buro 24/7 and became a street style sensation.
What drew me to Mira though, wasn't just her amazing sense of style, but her Russian roots -- she very much wears and promotes Russian and other Eastern European designers. I'm mostly Russian and am always looking for ways to connect with the culture.
It seems lately that everyone wants to connect as well. The Financial Times recently wrote about the rise of Miroslava. As early as 2012, the New York Times did a piece called "The Czarinas are Back."
Here are four names to start keeping on your radar:
Miroslava Duma -- Street style star. Former editor of Harper's Bazaar Russia. Founder of online fashion magazine Buro 24/7
Ulyana Sergeenko -- Russian courtier. Former model. Street style favorite.
Elena Perminova -- Model. Front row favorite. Russian "It" Girl.
Irina Shayk -- Sports Illustrated model. Intimissimi brand ambassador. Pomogi charity ambassador. Hercules actress.
