Anton Priymak (collector of antique corsets from St. Petersburg) and a sweet memory from my visit to the couture house of Tanya Kotegova, Saint Petersburg

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last year AURORA Fashion Week invited ASVOFF to screen in Saint Petersburg at the Kino Teatr Cinema at the legendary Angleterre Hotel. Outside of the screening and the lovely after party at the Mansarda restaurant a wonderful surprise was my visit to the couture house of Tanya Kotegova. Her work is absolutely beautiful and I could not resist trying on many of the pieces. In addition to Tanya's couture collection, I met Anton Priymak, the collector of antique corsets. You can follow his blog to find more on his vintage corsets and lingerie collection.
