Leonid Gurevich is perfect example of what eccentric fashion is all about. His personal style is mind blowing. The one element I adore about him is he a legend in the making and he is constantly promoting young talents. It is so refreshing to be inspired by someone like Leonid who chooses unique labels we have never heard of.
The Leonid Gurevich Style?
He is the next Salvador Dali when it comes to personal style. His choice of designers are getting better and better and his new images are even more inspiring than the previous ones. He is a brilliant designer, stylist and illustrator. He styles people like Sasha Gradiva (Grammy’s Gun Girl) and Lil Kim wearing his dress on her CD cover.
Gurevich caught the grand fashion bug in the wardrobe workshops of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow frequently visiting his mother who worked as an embroiderer there. As a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Gurevich was awarded the prestigious CFDA Scholarship Award and became the first student ever to be featured on the cover of the FIT Magazine. He continues to develop capsule collections and work with private atelier clients, presenting his works at various venues including the Museum of Russian Art. As a fashion illustrator, Gurevich has worked with designers Zac Posen, Alecia Zameska and Anya Caliendo Couture Millinery Atelier among others.
Celebrities who have worn his clothes
Lil Kim, Sasha Gradiva, Ari Gold, Doe Deere, Amanda Lepore, and Daphne Guinness. A fashion statement in and of himself, his photos frequent in style and celebrity blogs. Gurevich was recently published in the New York Times under the “Head Turners” title, photographed by the legendary Bill Cunningham.
