VASILIEV ALEXANDER - famous fashion historian Izvestia newspaper, No. 54, dated April 01, 2005.
“Young designers have already appeared in Russia, not only well following the trends of modern youth fashion in the world, but also understanding how the demands of young people can be commercialized. To translate into very simple but cost-effective collections that deserve approval. Moreover, this young growth is not at all Moscow spill - a lot of designers from the Volga, the Urals, Altai and the North Caucasus participated in the competition. Naturally, to appear for them in Moscow is not only prestigious and honorable, but also very promising, since some of the winners received the right to internships at Moscow concerns. In the works of young designers, there was a lot of common sense, adequate commercial ideas, adapted to our harsh climate. They also show the beginnings of professionalism, which we cannot but rejoice at”.

The work carried out by Exercise and Vera Tugova directly is akin to the hard and complex work of mining gold and diamonds, they wash the rock. We get ready-made cream, from which we can choose people and integrate them into the work of a real business.. We get a certain separated result at the Exercise competition, people who have passed a fairly large number of primary selection”
