Russian Fashion Princess: Kira Plastinina Comes Stateside

Kira Plastinina Boutique on Robertson in LA

Kira Plastinina is coming stateside and in a big way with the launch of stores in LA, New York and Las Vegas with 50 more stores planned in the United States within the next three years. The brand already has 40 stores in Russia, 2 in the Ukraine and 2 in Kazakhstan. This could be your basic global expansion, but the fact is the designer behind the brand is only 15! You'll find 500 stores globally by the year 2010.

Kira Plastinina is generally like every other teenage girl, only she is at the helm of a multi-million dollar company. By day she attends the prestigious Anglo-American school in Moscow, but after school she is chauffeured to her office where she begins her second life as a budding fashion designer. Backed by her millionaire father Sergei Plastinin, Kira's company is making major waves in the fashion world. "Kira Plastinina is well on her way to becoming an international sensation,” says Sergei Plastinin." With up to 40 branches open in premium malls in Russia, we have had tremendous success in creating a unique luxury brand that targets the teen market. Our decision to expand globally to the U.S. comes from our extensive research into the market and our confidence that we will fill a niche.” In 2007, Paris Hilton was brought in to sit front row at Kira's show during Moscow Fashion Week for a reported $2 million and the designer has already been named Glamour Magazine's "Woman of the Year" under the category "Breakthrough of the Year". In early January of this year,
fashion editor's like Teen Vogue's Amy Astley was introduced
to Kira Plastinina through a private party produced by
Harrison & Shriftman to unveil the designers collection before New York Fashion Week began. We can't wait to watch the career of this young designer!

In the LA Area? Watch for the Kira Plastinina ice cream truck this Memorial Day weekend! The truck will be driving between Kira's stores at Robertson Blvd. and Beverly Drive until 6 p.m. today handing out lollypops and tickets for shoppers to redeem a Kira T-shirt at one of her new LA stores which recently opened this month.

Check out the fabulous life of Kira Plastinina...

The Mayor's Fashion Council Industry Night

The Mayor's Fashion Council hosted a networking event tonight for fashion mavens in the city. Boutique owners, fashion editors, designers and students gathered at the Hard Rock Hotel for a meet and greet of the city's movers and shakers in the field of fashion. Guests enjoyed a plentiful amount of hors d' oeuvres like ceviche from China Grill, while sipping on Divine Vodka cocktails. On display were looks from local Chicago designers, Yana German of Yana Collection, Kristin Rosynek Hassan of organiK Revolution, Kate Coxworth of Kate Boggiano, Agga B Raya of Agga B., Glenn Mallory of 6ACE and Lidia Wachowska of Evil Kitty (pictured below from left to right). In a room flocked with fashionistas, we couldn't help but find some lust-worthy clothing and accessories that we loved.

Oh, Jenn Lake (of Skirt PR), how bad do we want your Hermès handbag! The black bag is the most coveted bag of our time and Jenn's investment piece couldn't be any more chic. Jenn snagged her bag at an auction held at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. While we absolutely adore Jenn's black Hermès, we found this crocodile Kelly bag on Ebay for $12,000. Click Here for details! Happy Bidding! Jewelry Designer Tracey Mayer is one of the most stylish women we know and tonight was no different with her statement making red top, cinched at the waist with a black patent belt. She was wearing her gorgeous Cinnabar ring from her collection, Tracey Mayer, $450,
We instantly fell in love with this red bow blouse, rouge by avion feminin that's available at Was $550, now $330.
We love how fashion writer Heather Kenny accented her black dress with an eye-catching oversized necklace! We thought it was vintage, but she snagged it at H & M! While we love budget pieces too, we couldn't help but get taken away with the oversized necklaces at Vivre. This Pompadour Necklace by Dori Csengeri goes for $1,475. If it's good enough for Madame de Pompadour, it's good enough for us. Shop Vivre.
