St. Petersburg, Russia – Showing for the first time in St. Petersburg is designer British designer Corrie Nielsen. With her she brought to Russia with her an elegant style with a retro-futuristic hint of femininity.

Silk, satin, sequins, sheers and knits are the essential materials that Nielsen privileges for her collection. With them Corrie Nielsen¬†creates a playful display of proportions, softness and sexiness. She keeps the lengths to just above the knees. And she is careful to show the skin just enough to excite the senses. However, she excites the mind by leaving more to the imagination. In the end we have a modern elegance that takes us back to the days of 1960s futurism, but for today’s contemporary woman.
