Our 'In Fashion' project is a series of in-depth, exclusive interviews featuring a myriad of individuals who help shape the ever-changing landscape of contemporary fashion.
The latest installment sees Lou Stoppard chat with the artist Gosha Rubchinskiy, who opens up about his childhood, influences and ambitions. Rubchinskiy's work is known for the romance of youth, Russian religious roots and the clash between the Russian post-soviet mentality and growing up in a country undergoing huge political, economical and cultural change after dissolution of the USSR in 1991.
His multidisciplinary, multi-media approach is Rubchinskiy's way of building his own world and ideology. He designs his collections, photographs them, casts models, produces his lookbooks and seasonal fanzines, as well as producing films and albums. He has recently published a book titled 'Youth Hotel.'
