Dear Shaded Viewers,
Svetlana Tegin is the founder of Tegin in Moscow. We met years ago at her Paris showroom and later I visited her atelier in Moscow. She has a successful brand in Moscow and is also a costume designer.
Born in Kiev, Tegin moved to Moscow and designed costumes and decor for club performances and fashion shows. She opened her own brand in 2001. Svetlana is often called the “Queen of cashmere” and goes every year to Mongolia where she sources some of her materials and takes in the total atmosphere. Her collection is streamlined and beautifully crafted and she makes some of the most beautiful and comfortable coats.
