Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
Parsi Fashion Week
Valentin Abramovich Yudashkin (Russian: Валентин Абрамович Юдашкин; b. October 14, 1963 in Moscow Oblast) is a Russian fashion designer.
He came out to prominence during the 1980s, dressing Raisa Gorbacheva.He is considered the first post-Soviet designer to bring a contemporary Russian look to the international fashion world, wowing critics with sumptuous theatricality as well as wearable styles.
His designs have been exhibited in museums such as the Louvre Museum of Fashion in Paris, the California Museum of Fashion in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the State Historical Museum in Moscow.
In 2010, he redesigned Russia's military uniforms, creating 85 designs to dress all branches of the Russian armed services. Nevertheless, the uniforms turned out to be absolutely useless, causing supercooling of many soldiers in the following winter. Also the quality was unbearable – the uniforms ripped apart very quickly and lost their colours after a very short period of time.
