want to model for gosha rubchinskiy?
Now’s your chance.
On Instagram this afternoon Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy announced that you can be the star of the spring/summer 17 show. Famous for his use of street cast skaters (last year Lucas Ionesco starred on his runway) from his hometown of Moscow, and for casting that revels in unlikely visions of masculinity. Speaking to i-D in Berlin last year the designer was full of praise for Instagram as a window onto the world, stating how he didn't like use to casting agency and instead, alongside his stylist Lotta Volkova, scoured networks to find the right boys to channel his vision.
This season the designer has taken that a step further, posting an opening casting call on the social network, asking hopefuls to send in a picture of themselves, their names, ages, phone numbers and Instagram accounts (obviously) to firstname.lastname@example.org to be in with a chance.
So if you've ever dreamed of joining Gosha's super cool Post-Soviet skate gang, you've finally got your way in.
UPDATE: The casting call is now closed. So don't email in anymore.
