"Touch" - this is the name of the unique exposition of wedding dresses and accessories from the collection of Vyacheslav Zaitsev in the Lublino estate museum.
Twenty-one outfits are presented at this exhibition, which will run until the end of September. All of them are from the designer's personal collection, they are really "museum" samples - not a single woman in them, alas, went to the registry office or to the altar. The famous couturier himself talks about his unique dresses: “Our queens wore them, this is the image of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, lush dresses with embroidery and corsets”.
As you know, the show of each new fashion collection ends with an exclusive bride dress. Outfits, gloves, hats, bracelets and necklaces exhibited in the old interiors of the Durasov Palace have completed the defile of the leading figure of Russian fashion for the last fifteen years. That is, these creations of the Zaytsev Fashion House belong to the third millennium - but they fit perfectly into the museum space.
Each can be viewed for a long time, enjoying the thoughtful details - ruffles, lace, beads - like enjoying the pictures of the old masters.
The idea of creating the exposition belongs to the Moscow State United Museum-Reserve "Kolomenskoye - Izmailovo - Lefortovo - Lyublino". However, there is no doubt that the former owner of the estate - Nikolai Durasov, a well-known Moscow rich man, hospitable and inventor - would have liked this exhibition. As many guests will surely like - and especially guests.
