The former executive fashion editor of Russian Vogue paints a picture of modern Moscow.
Like the city she lives in, Anna Dyulgerova continues to evolve. Early in her career, Dyulgerova took a job manning reception at Russian Vogue. A few years later she left her position as executive fashion editor, reporting in to Aliona Doletskaya, to pursue her own projects. Now Dyulgerova, who recently became a mother, works with Garage magazine, Russia, and oversees the marketing for various brands, including the cult fashion label Walk of Shame, founded and designed by Andrey Artyomov, and stores such as Tsvetnoy Central Market which is considered one of the world's most inspiring shopping destinations. Dyulgerova seamlessly moves within the world of fashion and art, and is considered somewhat of a cultural ambassador for Moscow. Whatever’s on her ‘To Do List’, should definitely be on yours.
Anna’s Top Moscow Hotspots
Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture and Garage Cafe at Gorky Park: “It's just the best place to hang out on weekends – you can have a look at the Baldessari show, choose books and magazines and have long brunches. Lamb meatballs and duck salad are the best.”
9/45 Krymsky Val St, 119049, Moscow
Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center: “The most amazing interactive historical museum I've ever been to.”
11 Obraztsova St, 127055, Moscow
Probka: “This is the first Moscow eatery by St Petersburg's own Aram Mnatsakanov and a place where bodyguards, dogs and cigars are not allowed. Together with the best Italian food in town it makes Probka one of the main spots.”
2 Tsvetnoy Blvd, 127051, Moscow
KM20: “A small and inspiring shopping spot designed by Alexander Brodsky and owned by beautiful Olga Karput.”
20 Kuznetsky Most, 107031, Moscow
Space Museum: “Close to VDNKh, which is also a must.”
111 Taikos Prospektas, 129515, Moscow
Zupperia: “This is a tiny lunch place, with food by the great Uilliam Lamberti. Must tries are the fish soup with quinoa and the roast beef salad.”
20 Garden Gravity St, 127051, Moscow
Five Kids: “I am obsessed with kids clothes since I became a mom. Stella Aminova opened this store on the famous Patriarshyie ponds and you can find many organic brands there along with the best Russian designers and kids collections.”
36 Malaya Bronnaya, 123001, Moscow
Tsvetnoy Central Market: Happy to work here, it's indeed the best store in Moscow. There's great architecture by Yuri Grirorian, an inspiring mix of brands - from Toga to Acne and Haider Ackermann - and, cherry on top, there's a lovely farmers market. It's a favourite place for everyone who lives in the area.
