The V&A has announced a major three-way partnership between the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and Vogue Russia. The collaboration, which builds on the V&A’s ongoing relationship in and with Russia, will see the partners collectively develop and curate a major new exhibition.

The exhibition will examine the influence of Russia on 20th-century and contemporary Western fashion and will engage with key periods and styles in Russian history, including: Russian folk culture, influence of the Russian court and imperial costume, Russian avant-garde and revolutionary romanticism, and Perestroika. The exhibition will include fashion, film, fine art, photography and costume and feature works by leading artists and designers from Bakst to Rodchenko, Paul Poiret to Jean Paul Gaultier. It will draw on a range of collections from the V&A, the State Tretyakov Gallery and The Vogue Archive, and will be complemented by international loans. It is anticipated the exhibition will open at the V&A in 2020 before being presented at the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow in spring 2021.

The V&A holds significant Russian collections of metalwork, jewellery and theatre and performance-related objects, as well as Russian furniture, textiles, glass, sculpture and paintings. Russian objects can be seen across the V&A’s galleries including the recently-reopened Europe 1600-1815 Galleries. The Museum has held many successful exhibitions at various venues in Russia and has also played an important role in bringing an understanding of Russian culture to Europe through exhibitions such as Russian Avant-Garde Theatre: War Revolution and Design 1913-1931 (2014 –2015), The Treasures of the Royal Courts: Tudors, Stuarts and the Russian Tsars (2013) , Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929 (2010) and Magnificence of the Tsars: Ceremonial Men's Dress of the Russian Imperial Court, 1721-1917 (2008 –2009).
