INTERNATIONAL IT GIRL
Style icon Nasiba Adilova has helped to put the Russian fashion pack on the map, cementing their status as international trend-setters and style-savvy experimentalists. Her personal wardrobe is the stuff of dreams, and includes an enviable collection of Mary Katrantzou treasures.
I have a very vivid memory of the first pair of shoes that I fell in love with.

They were true princess shoes and I felt like a little princess in them - I still love shoes that make me feel special
FASHION EDITOR, THE INDEPENDENT
When Alexander Fury puts pen to paper, people pay attention. Formerly Editor of LOVE magazine and Fashion Director of SHOWstudio, Alexander’s love and devotion to ground-breaking fashion design is reflected in his personal collection – which has just taken over a second bedroom in his East London flat.
