About fest

Modern life and the fashion community are constantly changing, adapting to new market conditions and current visual trends.

Therefore, we are redesigning our Admiralty Needle competition. The competition expands the palette of creativity and the boundaries of possibilities, and becomes the Admiralteyskaya Igla International Fashion, Art and Design Festival.

Our design metaverse unites the physical and digital worlds, open and closed platforms, and we are a “single digital whole”.

The concept of the 2022 festival is a “restructuring of society” aimed at highlighting both the social evolution after the pandemic and the urgency of cyclical and digitization in the fashion industry. The following solutions will be discussed at the festival: the future of design, digital doubles, upsizing and much more.

Bright screenings and exhibitions, group discussions (aquariums, World Cafe, Open Space) will be held during the festival week. And also, this year’s “Admiralteyskaya Igla International Fashion, Art and Design Festival” will include a large-scale unusual competition program consisting of various contests and nominations.

Participation in new contests will help cool designers find their niche in the modern fashion industry and win the main prize of 500,000 rubles!
