    Slava Zaitsev

    “A new challenger”

    Slava Zaitsev was invited to Paris by Madame Carven to present his new collection at the Marigny Theater. While Slava claimed his mission was to dress Russian women, he was also very keen to export his pieces. “Having my clothes on sale in Paris would mark a new chapter in long-term contacts between France and the USSR,” he said.

    Madame Carven invited the biggest Soviet designer back to Paris for a second time, to present another of his collections. This time, Slava Zaitsev chose a “black look” for his models, combined with diamante, velvet, and black satin.

    The new style was typical of Viacheslav Zaitsev, better known as Slava. Famed for dressing Raisa Gorbachev, the new tsar of the Moscow fashion scene went as far as sending his models down the catwalk in New York.
