Russian IT girls

After my One Lovely Blog Award post, when I revealed I had a huge crush on Russian IT girls, Lena, from Feline Creatures, said she´d love to see a post about those iconic ladies. Truth is, I´ve been thinking to do that kind of post for a while, but never thought to include them all.

This passion for Russian IT girls is part of a bigger thing – the admiration for Russian Culture, that I have since I was a little girl.

Though my blog is a recent thing, my internet stalking on these girls is much older. The first one that caught my attention was Miroslava Duma – still remember the first photo I saw, on a street style blog, and specially what she was wearing: a universe dress. Her adorable doll-like face, and the fact that she was extremely petite, combined with her notable taste for fashion, made me google her. A few minutes later, I was being introduced to the Russian IT girls.

Known for their national pride (as you can see from some of their looks but, mostly, the way they talk in interviews); exquisite taste; capability of bringing the inside of a couture collection to the streets and success both in the fashion industry and outside, they´ve been attentively observed by fashionistas all around the world and are frequently front row in the most exclusive and important fashion shows. There are several russian IT girls, but 5 in particular that I really love. 4 of them are part of what is called the Russian Fashion Pack – Miroslava Duma, Ulyana Sergeenko, Vika Gazinskaya and Elena Perminova. The 5ft girl is Anya Ziourova.

Miroslava Duma
She’s The daughter of Russian senator Vasily Duma, and probably the most influential it girl. Always impeccable on street style photos, Mira Duma is even a trendsetter when it comes to maternity clothing. At the very young age of 24 she became the editor of Harper’s Bazaar Russia and later she co-founded the Buro 24/7, an amazing website permanently updated with the most exclusive fashion news.

Elena Perminova
This mother of two turns heads not only for her beauty but also for her creative taste. Every fashion photographer loves her and the question she’s most used to hear is ‘what are you wearing?’.

  1. Oh I loved this Pipsyl!
    Hahah. I remember I first started noticing these ‘it girls’ because of Miroslava Duma, and I instantly fell in love with the petite style icon. I remember one of my first posts for my blog was about them! You’ve now been initiated into the Russian ‘it’ girl world with this post hehe:P
    But I also must say I now favour Elena Perminova’s style – one moment she’s angry & edgy..and then all of a sudden she’s chic, and lady like… as for Ulyana she’s timeless.
    Once again: Loved this!!
