Russian Street Fashion Diary: "The Russian Mafia"

             When we talk about street fashion style in Russia, there is no way we are not going to run into these five gorgeous ladies, Miroslava Duma, Ulyana Sergeenko, Elena Perminova, Natalia Vodianova and Natasha Goldenberg, better known by the name “The Russian Mafia”. Now this is not the kind of street fashion you might be expecting because they are rather more of a “fashion elite” making spectacular presence in most fashion weeks around Europe. A true inspiration for a street fashion bloggers, we take a glimpse of their lives.
 
Miroslava Duma aka Mira: 
             At only 160 cm height, this cutie is an IT girls and is the founder of the fashion news Buro 24/7. Started as the Social Event Editor at the Russian Harper’s, Mira is currently living at the Plaza Hotel in New York and works as a freelance editor for Tatler Magazine, OK (Russia) and Glamour (Russia). That must be real tough life ahahaha.





Ulyana Sergeenko: 
             A fashion designer, photographer, stylist and a blogger was first criticized and made fun by the fashion industry for her folkloric skirts. Now as a couture designer, people stand in line to see her shows and wear her skirts. That makes her the bold and not the slave of the trend and her style is usually a combination of the 19th century Russia from the fifties vibes. She love vintage and we love her.





Elena Perminova: 
             As a young girl, she was arrested for distributing drugs in disco and sent to witness protection program after she collaborated with the police where she actually met her future husband and fall in love while studying economics at the Moscow State University. Today at 25, she is a model.





Natalia Vodianova: 
             She represents some of the greatest names in Runway, like the Givenchy, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Yves Sail Laurent, Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney to name a few and you won’t even believe us if we say she is a mother of 3 kids. Today she lives in Paris and yes she can afford it, she is the 3rd most paid model today and is also an actress.





Natasha Goldenberg: 
             A mom, a fashion style icon and a fashion designer, she launched her own label “Tzipporah” (line of beanies, turbans and accessories). Currently working as the director at Kova & T, she use to work as a journalist for Hello Russia Magazine and Russia Grazia. We hear that Miroslava Duma is her best friend. Now we know why we love her so much.
