In Russia, fashion events may be staged in the unlikeliest of spots such as metro stations, bathhouses or even cattle barns.

Western fashion maisons have been known for holding their shows in settings constructed to resemble a grocery store or bar and present lingerie collections on subway trains and boats. Russian designers have displayed an equal amount of flair regarding their adventurous venue choices.

Alexander Terekhov recently surprised his clients and fashion critics by staging his show at the Dostoyevskaya metro station in Moscow. Other out-of-the-ordinary locations for fashion events in Russia have ranged from train depots and theatre foyers to cattle barns and bathhouses. These unlikely spaces help to present couture in a new and original light while creating memorable experiences for the audiences.
