Emerging Talents PR director: I believe we will be seeing more Armenian designers

August is a very busy month in Armenia. Social calendar is getting busier and attracts people from all over the world. Novosti Armenia news agency had a chance to catch up with Russ Ev (Ruslan Evseev), well known PR and celebrity stylist, who brought Emerging Talents Milan project to Yerevan. Seven international and local designers will be exclusively presented for Art and Fashion Presentation, and Charity Sales that will be held from August 14 to 16 in a luxury penthouse.

The full interview is provided below:

- Russ, tell us about Emerging Talents Milan Project. How did you come up with the concept?

- In 2015 I worked as the editor-in-chief hief of Spy News Magazine, online platform dedicated to Emerging Designers, and was organizing events in LA, as we had our head office there.

Through my PR team in Italy, I met Tariel Bisharian who was running a showroom in Milan, also dedicated to Emerging Talents. So we decided to join our forces and launch Emerging Talents Milan.

- Long story short. After I completed my Master Degree in Northumbria, I decided to take some time and travel around the world. Then I ended up working in Public Relations for Entertainment company in Hong Kong. It was an incredible experience, I got to meet everyone related to fashion industry in Milan, NY, Paris, and London. Somehow I was invited to join Giuseppe Zanotti press office team and work with them during the Cannes Film Festival. I jumped on this opportunity and moved to Milan. It was an extraordinary experience working with GZ and help him styling A list celebrities in Cannes. Then I fell in love and stayed in Italy. Very simple and banal story, I guess. (laughing)

- Is this your first time in Yerevan? How do you like Armenia?

- Yes, this is my firs...
