Gosha Rubchinskiy is a fashion designer, photographer and film maker. He makes elegant sportswear collections inspired by the romance of the 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.
Gosha Rubchinskiy studied at the Moscow College of Technology and Design and launched menswear label ГОША РУБЧИНСКИЙ, in 2008. Referencing Raegan’s Cold War-description of the USSR, Rubchinskiy’s first collection, 'Empire of Evil' was presented at the end of 2008 for S/S 2009. His second collection, 'Growing and Expanding', was shown in a disused Orthodox church-turned-gym in Moscow’s suburbs. Rubchinskiy’s third collection, 'The sunrise is not far behind the mountains', consisted of three parts: a video shot in St. Petersburg, a book of photographs and the collection itself. This trilogy was aimed at showing what’s going on in the heads of those young skaters and graffiti artists. In 2010, the designer presented his forth collection, 'Slave', as a part of Fashion East Menswear Installation. In 2012, he started his collaboration with COMME DES GARCONS, who for the first time, handled the production and international distribution of a designer outside of their own creative team. This collaboration is now running into its 6th season (SS15), which is marked by Gosha’s runway debut at Paris Fashion Week.
Everything Gosha does is about multimedia. He designs his collections, photographs them, casts models, produces his lookbooks and seasonal fanzines. It’s his way to create his own world and to build his ideology as a whole.
