As part of the popular Years of Culture programme, Qatar Museums (QM) presented an exclusive fashion show and jewellery exhibition at Russia’s largest museum of photography and multimedia. The show, titled “Qatari Seasons”, was hosted for the first time in Moscow at the Multimedia Art Museum and introduced audiences to modern Qatari designers.
The high-profile event was attended by several VIP guests from Qatar and Russia, including His Excellency Fahad bin Mohammed Al-Attiyah, Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the Russian Federation, gallerist and artist Aidan Salakhova, designer Olga Tompson, Tretyakov Gallery Director Zelfira Tregulova, Olympic champion Anzhelika Timanina, and others.
Participating Qatari fashion designers included Wadha Al Hajri, who showcased a demi-couture collection of her brand specially created for the event, Waad Mohammed, creator of fashion brand WAAD and Qatari jewelry brand, NOUDAR.
On the next day after the event at Multimedia Art Museum special pop-up project with collections of Noudar, WAAD and Wadha brands was presented at TSUM – the main Moscow department store.
The event comes as part of QM’s commitment to nurture emerging talent by providing local and international platforms of expression. Through such opportunities, a new generation of creators can interact with some of the world’s most talented artists to not only find inspirations but also tell Qatar’s story to international audiences.
As an extension to Qatari Seasons, the Fire Station in Doha will present an exhibition by internationally-acclaimed fashion designer Vika Gazinskaya, titled “Russian Seasons”. The exhibition will celebrate contemporary Russian fashion design. Curated by Frol Burimskiy, it will be open from the 16th to the 23rd of October.
Qatar Russia 2018 is part of the Years of Culture initiative developed under the guidance of QM’s Chairperson HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani in 2012. It is designed to deepen understanding between nations and their people through mutual exchanges of arts, culture and heritage. It also provides tangible opportunities to build sustainable links and cooperation between creative members of Qatari and Russian society and foster continuous collaboration.
