Seems like the wait is over for our dear John Varvatos-loving loaded friends from Moscow as the designer himself made an appearance at the star studded launch event of his first Russian retail store. In classic JV fashion, the event featured black carpet arrival with VIP guests from Russia and beyond including Russian singer-songwriter and businessman Emin Agalarov, billionaire entrepreneur Aras Agalorov, actor Pavel Tabakov, singer Ani Lorak, singer/television entertainer Inna Malikova, singer Anna Sedokova as well as a rock star-worthy VIP party featuring a special live performance by the legendary Russian rock band, Bi-2. After the Bi-2 performance, the festivities carried on with an after party at the exclusive Rose Bar, where guests were treated to a special and thrilling fire performance including juggling, baton twirling, poi spinning, fire breathing and eating, and fireworks display.
“I’m excited to have opened the first John Varvatos store in Russia, and I am very a happy to be celebrating the store opening with our friends here tonight,” said designer John Varvatos. “Emin has a genuine passion for the John Varvatos brand and has been an excellent partner. I am confident he will grow the brand well in Russia.” John Varvatos
