ST. PETERSBURG, June 23. /TASS/. The St. Petersburg-based State Hermitage Museum will exhibit more than 100 costumes created by celebrated Moscow fashion designer Vyacheslav Zaitsev commonly known as Slava Zaitsev. The exhibition will be a step in establishing a costume museum.
"The Hermitage Museum presents a large-scale monographic exhibition of prominent Russian fashion designer Vycheslav Zaitsev for the first time. The exposition includes more than 100 outfits made in the Slava Zaitsev Fashion House in Moscow over the past 30 years as well as early clothing design sketches and maestro’s photos," the museum’s press service said.
Outfits made for various fashion shows and clothes ordered by celebrities will be displayed in the new exhibition pavilion of the Hermitage Museum, the Small Hermitage.
Hermitage Director Mikhail Piotrovsky earlier said that the museum is preparing a series of costume exhibitions and will open a costume museum in the future.
The Hermitage Museum has a collection of vintage costumes that belonged to members of the Russian Royal family among others. The museum is also replenishing its collection of contemporary clothing. It has recently received 34 articles of clothing of late Russian opera diva Elena Obraztsova, among them clothes designed by Vyacheslav Zaitsev.
