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 from his hometown of Moscow, Gosha's casting 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 embody his vision.
This season, the designer has taken that a step further: he posted 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 email@example.com for a chance to hit the catwalk.
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.
