Over the centuries, bright creative stars and talents have burst onto the scene and set cultural trends for decades to come. Such visionaries as Sergey Diaghilev, Felix Yusupov, Irina Yusupova, and countless other prominent names have contributed to the promotion of the Russian style. Today, young talents continue to draw inspiration from tradition and culture. Fashion trends are the future that is already with us; you just need to be able to see it. In art, design, cinema, business, and other spheres, influencers, popular culture, the economy, and society itself influence how trends take shape. This is precisely where new ideas and concepts appear that then spread throughout the world and determine how society develops further. Who is shaping the trends and b. ecoming the main trendsetters of the future and how?
