HSE Design School Students Hold Fashion Show During Merсedes-Benz Fashion Week
Fashion students at HSE’s Design School will hold a fashion show featuring their collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which takes place in Moscow March 11-16.
The students’ original designs were developed as part of their coursework – looking at approaches to fashion from Japanese deconstruction fashion to merging traditional Tibetan clothes with skater culture.
The project is led by HSE Design School teachers, designers Maria Smirnova (INSHADE) and Ekaterina Sycheva (Rusmoda). HSE opened its fashion department at HSE Design School in 2014 and it is already making a name for itself as the leading creative driver of Russian fashion education.
The HSE Design School offers an approach to education that is built on practices in place at the world’s leading art, design and fashion schools such as Central Saint Martins, Polimoda among others.
From the very start of their courses, the students are immersed in the industry and receive a wide range of education from the retail perspective to visual communication in ideology, marketing, and PR.
Students are also involved in creating and branding collections, building up fashion labels, merchandising, and creating fashion spaces. The Fashion section is headed by HSE Design School tutor Anzor Kankulov.

On November 18, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art will host Recycle Day for the first time ever. Organised in cooperation with Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO and the HSE School of Design, this event is devoted to sustainable development and textile recycling.
The Moscow metro has launched a big educational project ‘Hello, Moscow!’ (Priviet, Moskva!). This will turn the Moscow transport system into a ‘guide’, telling the passengers about the city in various contexts, and making the everyday commute a more useful and interesting journey. The project creators include HSE staff and alumna.
A project by Zlata Sapko and Marina Aleksashina, third-year students of the programme in Fashion, won a competition organized by Hermès and the HSE School of Art and Design. The presentation of the project took place in GUM.
The HSE Art Gallery is the first of its kind among Russian universities. The gallery is expected to become a space for established contemporary artists and students to work together and share their experiences with one another. They will be able to not only present their works at the gallery, but also participate in the creation of exhibitions.
White walls with stickers and residue from coloured tape, smoothies and vegetarian dishes at the cafeteria, and students whom it’s difficult to send home even at 11:00 p.m. – this is how third-year Fashion student Zhenya Sychev and third-year Communication Design student Inna Zozulya described the HSE School of Design in the latest edition of Open House.
The Design School is launching HSE Film School, bringing together all educational levels: the BA in Film and Video-Art, Modern Art programmes, further education, post-graduate and MA studies. HSE Film School is led by renowned film director and screenwriter Alexander Zeldovich, who talks here about why contemporary film needs a new approach, what will be taught in the Film School, and why.
When a classroom is well-organized, children not only feel comfortable, but also learn more effectively. Ways to create such a space were discussed at the research seminar ‘Design of educational spaces’, which was held at the Center of Leadership Development in Education at HSE’s Institute of Education on July 12-13.
The exhibition Design NEXT opened last Wednesday at the Central House of Artists in Moscow’s Krimsky Val area.
