Natasha Drigant AW2011 - Volvo Fashion Week Moscow

Natasha Drigant is what I would call a safe and solid brand. Natasha has been showing two collections per year since 1999 which is rare in Russia as the fashion industry is very much in its infancy and it is not uncommon for designers to struggle with funding two collections per year on top of managing to sell the clothes. Natasha Drigant most certainly sells, probably due to the practicality and understandability of the clothes. The AW2011 collection was presented at Volvo Fashion Week. For me the highlight of the collection would have to be the dresses with the folds (I guess what one would call them?!) on the hips, as well as the clean line coats (especially the black leather one). The clothes were most certainly practical but only a couple of items truly stood out from the crowd.
