This, as reported by RIA Novosti, was announced at a gala reception held at the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in New York. The Yudashkin evening dress was donated by the artist to the New York Institute of Costume, which is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The collection of the world famous Institute, founded in 1937, includes over 75 thousand costumes and accessories from countries of all continents, representing the development of fashion over the past seven centuries. Director of the Costume Institute Peter Kobe noted in his speech that `since 1976, when the exhibition 'Glory of Russian Dress' was held there, the museum has not had the opportunity to show New Yorkers samples of Russian fashion designers, close in spirit and grandeur to the beauty of old Russian clothes`. “Now that moment has come,” he added.

Yudashkin himself, expressing gratitude to the Fashion Institute for the recognition of his work, said that the donated dress is part of the Anna Karenina collection, made several years ago and shown at one time in Paris. “This collection is Russian in spirit - very tragic, sad, nostalgic,” said Yudashkin. - She, it seems to me, is inherent in everything that characterizes the Russian costume - the culture of fabric, lace, embroidery.

According to the designer, representatives of the Metropolitan Museum Board of Trustees approached him with a desire to exhibit the entire collection. “It’s very nice, and I, of course, was happy to donate this dress to them,” said the couturier. - Now there are joint exhibitions and other projects ahead. The main thing, says Yudashkin, who became the first Russian to show his three collections in New York as part of the prestigious 7th on Sixth Avenue fashion week, “so that America opens up to young Russian fashion designers.”

The designer became at one time almost the first Russian couturier who paved the way for his colleagues on the catwalks of Paris and Milan. The artist's works are in the Louvre Costume Museum, the California Fashion Museum, the State Historical Museum in Moscow, the International Museum of the Olympic Games, and representative offices of the Valentin Yudashkin Fashion House operate, in addition to Russia, in France and Italy, where his seasonal collections are regularly shown.

According to Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, Consul General of the Russian Federation in New York, Yudashkin's present gift - and similar gifts to the Costume Institute were made at different times by such couturiers as Gianni Versace, Christian Dior and other recognized trendsetters of world fashion - will enrich the museum's collection with exhibits representing Russian art.
