As part of the Futurum Moscow runway show, a platform founded by Alexander Shumsky – who’s also the founder of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia – that helps young and emerging fashion designers based in the Moscow, Maria Savvina got the opportunity to showcase her brand’s second collection in a row. This time, it was a commentary on overconsumption and sustainability, a pressing issue among the youth around the world, who see their future stolen away by the terrible practices and decisions made by older generations.
This sadness is present in Savvina’s collection for o5o, as well as the beauty of fading and extinction. A trench with dozens of roses attached was a romantic yet poignant critique on global warming and how we’re destroying the existence of millions of other beings. However, her collection was somehow imbued with hope, even celebration. After discovering Maria and her brand during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia, we got to sit down with her and speak about her first memories in fashion, beauty canons and her future.
