The MCFW welcomes Chapurin again on their runway. In October 2005, CHAPURIN showed its collection as the first-ever Russian fashion brand in the official calendar of the Paris prêt-a-porter Fashion Week, and will present their latest collection on the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week catwalk. Fashion House CHAPURIN was established by Igor Chapurin in 1998 in downtown Moscow, creating haute couture in the beginning, but the brand evolved to expand into seasonal prêt-a-porter and multiple capsule collections and accessories, plus a jewelry line. Later they got involved in other projects such as CHAPURINCASA, line of furniture design and home environment, serving as a basis for CHAPURIN’s steady involvement in interior and industrial design. Restaurants ‘Vesna’ on Moscow Noviy Arbat Street and Domodedovo International Airport’s VIP-Lounge, Italian Tecnomar shipyard’s yacht interior design, own CHAPURINBAR & restaurant, Wimm-Bill-Dann factories’ façade redesign are among many successful interior projects of the brand. This year CHAPURIN brand celebrates their 20th anniversary. It is a true story of success and determination, great projects in Moscow and abroad with new partnerships, among these CHAPURIN brand is planning to release a new eyewear line, skate boards produced in California and a collaboration with Russian young contemporary artists. Today CHAPURIN Fashion House is represented in Russia, Europe, Asia and USA headed by its art director Igor Chapurin, continuing its successful collaboration with the renowned Bolshoi Ballet, as well as engaging itself in a whole range of exciting Russian and international fashion and art projects.
