A night of Russian fashion and art is coming to the famous BBC, or British Bankers Club in Menlo Park.

Designer Vasiliy Vein, who will present his Spring-Summer 2011 collection, started creating fashion since his early youth. His first pieces were made for his younger sister and friends, but now he serves his clientele in Moscow, San Francisco, and other fashionable cities of the world.
He says that he finds his inspiration in music, and that his goal is to become an authoritative fashion expert and to dress women of all ages.

He works successfully in a variety of media, and the patrons of his art reside not only in California, but far beyond. Besides his paintings and drawings, the artist creates unique tableware pieces, covered with his art.
