Tigran Avetisyan’s name is the first thing that comes to mind when speaking about recent developments of the fashion industry in Russia. He was born in Saint Petersburg and studied fashion design at Central Saint Martins. Still being a student Tigran managed to receive the LVMH grant and worked as an intern for brands like Acne and Lanvin. Beginning from his very first collection the designer let himself speak about blood-and-guts issues painting his creations with slogans «Too much pressure», «No jobs», «What will remain». Tigran Avetisyan pieces are remarkable for their simple cut, trade mark exaggerated stitches and hand painted labels.
