A young Nizhny Novgorod designer Pavel Ryabinin appeared in the fashion industry unexpectedly, but immediately took his place of honor among the venerable Russian fashion designers. With his models, Paul “preaches” femininity, softness and plasticity, believing that girls and women should be just like that.
Pavel Ryabinin was born in Nizhny Novgorod in 1984. He grew up as an ordinary boy, except that he liked to look at clothing models in glossy magazines. He just looked at the pictures, not suspecting that someday his dresses will show off in the same magazines and on Internet portals.
In one interview, Pavel admitted that at that time he could not even draw, let alone design, although there were already the first images of some models in his head.
After school, the future designer was waiting for the biological faculty of the university and work in Rosprirodnadzor. When Pavel realized that this was not what he wanted to do, he decided to start taking steps towards his childhood dream.
He had no idea what to do or where to start. Fortunately, in Nizhny Novgorod then there was the Academy of Fashion Technologies, where Pavel went to study. There he learned everything a designer should be able to: sketching, sewing and construction. During that period, Ryabinin even created his first collection, which consisted of five dresses.
He decided to go to the Nizhny Novgorod competition "Silver Thread" with one of his models and won first place. The same victory awaited him at a competition in Moscow.
These successes inspired, but they could not help the young designer to somehow advance. He was faced with a choice: to stay in the main job or completely go into free swimming. Pave chose the latter - he quit and registered at the labor exchange.
At that time, there was a small business support program in the region, according to which entrepreneurs were allocated a certain amount to start their own business. Ryabinin took advantage of this program, rented an office and began consulting on style. He advertised on the Internet, people found him and were very pleased with his advice.
Pavel did not just suggest which clothes would suit the girl best - he developed an exclusive model for her, and this was very valuable. Gradually, ideas of cooperation with beauty salons, ateliers and fashion magazines came up.
A lucky chance brought Ryabinin together with the owner of a fashion magazine, Ekaterina Chudakova, who invited him to become the editor-in-chief of her magazine. As a media representative, Pavel now visited fashion shows and was more and more convinced that this was his element.
Gradually, the idea came to use in the models the motives of folk crafts from Nizhny Novgorod, and Ryabinin drove around the region - to look, sketch, add to his work.
These trips yielded results: Pavel drew sketches, designer Maria Borisenkova turned them into drawings, and after a short time the new Ivolga collection already took part in the Miss Nizhny Novgorod 2013 contest.
The public liked Ryabinin's models, and soon he created two similar collections.
Soon after this competition, Pavel resigned from the post of editor-in-chief of the magazine, as there was not enough time for everything. He devoted himself entirely to the creation of dress models.
Today the famous brand “Pavel Ryabinin's Dresses” is known not only in Russia. With the help of modern communications, the talented designer was recognized in other countries, and now feminine models are scattered all over the world.
Ryabinin plans to develop "on all fronts" as much as possible, and he is not going to stop there
Paul is a public person, but he loves solitude, nature. As he himself says, so that there is space and a lot of water - then for him this is rest.
In general, the life of a designer is such that his work continues 24 hours a day, because the thought cannot be stopped, and even in a bowl of soup, according to Pavel, you can see the idea of the next model.
