About the creator

Russian independent designer and photographer Andrey Moss creates through a distinctive anatomical approach inspired by women, art, religion.. and explores the dark side of culture, employs a deft process of fabric analysis and personally sourced materials to create something entirely unique. His creations are a departure from any major fashion brand, rejecting beauty in the mainstream sense for something much more primal — a kind of second skin. Moss’s designs may seem macabre, but his exquisite relation of texture to form produces a beauty all its own. Through his creations, Moss reclaims damning constructions of woman to produce carefully crafted pieces that empower in the process. They are redolent of centuries past, yet their exceptional style makes them distinctly modern, they express the impermanence of the human experience through an artist's eyes..

The Golden Hour..

Everyone should have a place where you are not just safe and not just can be alone with yourself, but a place where you can hear your own inner voice and find peace. Your own sanctuary.. Every day I am looking forward to the moment when the sun goes down and illuminates my country studio with its golden rays. This is a place where I don't just work or read, but recharge my "batteries". A place where I am completely cut off from civilization. Every year I wait for the endless winter gloom to finally go away and I can come back here. Come back to devote myself to the garden, warmth and birdsong. Every year, these moments only become more fleeting and therefore even more valuable..

If only they knew she had the power..

One of the most boring questions that can be asked in an interview, after the question about inspiration, is "what would you say to yourself if you went back in time?". And so, in my case, I would tell myself that you should not give up everything and start doing creative work right after school (as eventually happened), go and study to be a movie costume designer.. Perhaps then my creative career would have turned out quite differently and there would have been no brand called "Creative collaborator with the Devil". But despite the fact that this did not happen, fourteen years later I am working in exactly this concept and ideology, not just creating shoes and accessories, but telling stories with the help of artistic images, as if they were part of some movie. My latest eighth collection is no exception. I would like it to be something like the old American thrillers, full of primitive special effects and fake blood..

"We suffered repulse after repulse, but Joan was here and there and everywhere encouraging the men, and she kept them to their work. When all our host was shouting itself hoarse with rejoicings, and there went up a cry for the General, for they wanted to praise her and glorify her and do her homage for her victory, we had trouble to find her; and when we did find her, she was off by herself, sitting among a ruck of corpses, with her face in her hands, crying - for she was a young girl, you know, and her hero heart was a young girl's heart too, with the pity and the tenderness that are natural to it. She was thinking of the mothers of those dead friends and enemies."
- Mark Twain, Personal Recollections of Joan Of Arc.

Catherine de Médicis was alone, seated near a table, with her elbow leaning on a prayer-book half open, and her head leaning on a hand still remarkably beautiful,—by reason of the cosmetics with which she was supplied by the Florentine Réné, who united the double duty of perfumer and poisoner to the queen mother.
The widow of Henry II. was clothed in mourning, which she had not thrown off since her husband's death. At this period she was about fifty-two or fifty-three years of age, and owing to her stoutness and fair complexion she preserved much of her early beauty.
Her rooms, like her dress, paraded her widowhood. Everything in them bore the impress of bereavement: hangings, walls, and furniture were all in mourning. Only above a kind of dais covering a throne, where at that moment lay sleeping the little greyhound presented to the queen mother by her son-in-law, Henry of Navarre, and bearing the mythological name of Phœbe, was a painted rainbow surrounded by that Greek motto which King François I. had given her: "Phôs pherei ê de kai a‘íthzên;" which may be translated:
"He brings light and serenity."
- Alexandre Dumas, Queen Margot.

Massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy.. Collection no.8

"It was striking eleven o'clock at Saint Germain l'Auxerrois. Maurevel counted each of the hammer-strokes as they sounded clear and melancholy through the night, and when the last echo had died away in space he turned to Coconnas, who was greatly mystified at seeing the precautions taken by the two men. "Sir," he asked, "are you a good Catholic?" - Alexandre Dumas, Queen Margot.
One morning at the gates of the Louvre. Édouard Debat-Ponsan.
In my new eighth collection I continue to explore violence. And, unfortunately, the history of human cruelty is so voluminous that my own life is not enough to express this topic through my work. Having finished with the
