The dress is called "The Best of Both Worlds". The concept of this design is a fusion of traditional Chinese shape and Russian ornament. It symbolizes the integration of Russian and Chinese culture with the modern lifestyle. It represents a young girl who is interested in traditions of her own country but stays in touch with the modern reality.
The main source of inspiration is Qipao. It was approached in an innovative way. The key elements of Qipao such as stand collar and decorative fasteners were mixed with the flared silhouette and pleats specific to the Russian traditional costume. The red color symbolizes joy, love and celebration, which relates to the topic of the exhibition. The white color, used for the collar and piping, gives the dress a fresh look. This dress is for special occasions but can also be worn in everyday life supporting the idea that every day is special.
