Gazinskaya is an internationally-acclaimed fashion designer, street-style icon, and a trendsetter.
She is well-known for voluminous structured designs, whimsical bright patterns, hand-stitched details, and use of luxurious materials, sourced from suppliers in Italy and France.
Her designs can be seen on the most influential celebrities from around the world.
Krestetskaya strochka is a material manifestation of the spiritual culture of the Russian people, which has been representing the Novgorodian land since 1860.
For more than a hundred years, the masterly craftsmanship of this delicate embroidery has been passed down the generations, carefully maintaining its traditions while also looking for new methods.
Several years ago, an old factory in Velikiy Novgorod that was known for producing famous embroidery was revived.
Guests will have a chance to see this famous work during the event in Doha.
The project curator is Frol Burimsky.
