Hi everyone! It\’s been such a crazy month for me, but no doubts it was an awesome one!
This fashion season was extremely energetic and productive. I was so lucky to partner up with Red Capital showroom, designers and even some artists.
I also would like to express my biggest gratitude to Victoria and Shirley from MBFW comity. It was such a pleasure to work with you ladies!

As in any other situation I also had some negative experience. However, I rather learn my lesson from it, get smarter, improve myself and move forward.
I like to think that behind every successful woman there is a tribe of other successful women, who has her back. This idea worked out for me very well. I stand for empowering women, supporting each other and growing together as a community. Someone asked me: How are you dealing with competitive women and jealousy? In that case, I know that everyone chooses whether to go high or to go low, and I choose to go high. I work on my self every single day, I believe that Iâ€™m a decent person and I try to surround myself with people alike, from whom I can learn and become a better version of myself.

Every season I plan and set up goals, which I aim to achieve, and somehow, I get to accomplish 95% of them. I think that a list of clearly formulated targets is a way to succeed in business or in personal life. And yes Iâ€™m proud of myself â˜º
For Autumn Winter season I applied for media pass, that was confirmed by comity and now I proudly present raimbekova.com as one of the platforms to officially cover Mercedes-Benz China Fashion Week.
This AW 2017-2018 season Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week presented new designers, annual participants and invited foreign designer from Italy â€“ Vivetta Ponti. Show really impressed me, I liked everything: colors, lines, styling, hair and make up, music and decorations – every detail was on point. The Circus, antique objects and French artist Jean Metzinger inspired the collection; embroidery and prints translated vintage spirit, everything was on fleek. It was so entertaining and interesting to watch the show.

This season MBFW held annual Hempel Award for young designers. The grand prix winner was a student of my dear friend â€“ Gabriel Torres (international judge for top 20 designers in MBCFW). Congratulations Gabrielï¼ˆcheck our interview hereï¼‰ , you must be so proud! I got to say, that young designer deserved his prize, and I got to say he is very good looking young man. For a moment, I confused him with a model, but he happened to be a designer himself. Summary of MBFW from my perspective:
I would like to mark HUANRAN WU, Pollyanna Keong, N.Paia, Sun Lin, for whom I opened for my self this season. Jusere, Heaven Gaia would be my favorite for evening dress line, for parent child line would be VICKYâ€™Z and JoJo.
(Donâ€™t miss video interview with designer Xu Xin Yin of Vickyâ€™Z in my next post.)

As for my personal style, I think it keeps evolving and shape. This season I tried to be different every day. Clothes help me to express different sides of my personality: today I can be a tomboy, and tomorrow I can wear a ladylike dress with high heels. Moreover, not to mention, I really love man clothes! I think it looks good on me, and also help me to uncover other sides of my personality. Iâ€™m a big lover of my husbandâ€™s suits. So every time I feel like nothing to wear, I steal one of his suits. Fashion is getting more transgender in my opinion, so there is no crime to be committed by wearing man clothes at all! Letâ€™s see what next season of China fashion Week will bring us.
