It's called Russian Drink Cardin, and for the right to contaminate the works of Valentin Yudashkin, the best models fight on the catwalk. He is a talented friend who is happy to see literally in every star home. Yet – the most ordinary person, whose life is dedicated to the world of high fashion, outside of which his wife, his children and grandchildren always wait for him patiently.
Valentin Abramovich was born 55 years ago in the village of Bakovka. Since he was a child, the future couturier loved to draw and even as a child he created his first sketches of clothing. While the peers were chasing the ball in the yard, he spent all his free time, bending over white sheets and a sewing machine, and when he graduated from school he entered the Moscow industrial technical school at the modeling department, being single man.
Valentin Yudashkin opened his first studio selling Zhiguli and in 1987 he revealed his talent for the first time to the general public.
In the 90s, Yudashkin's clothes became a true success of secular society. Couturier created stage costumes for Philip Kirkorov, Lyudmila Gurchenko, Natalya Vetlitskaya and Alla Pugacheva. A talented stylist met with a first woman during one of her first shows: in the years & # 80; 80 Olimpiyski was preparing a new collection for the presentation and held a concert.
"Alla Pugacheva is not one of those women who run after fashion, this is happiness, it is independent and intellectual, even if rather desperate: it can wear anything", confessed Yudashkin.
Who makes the "woman who sings" is not associated with this day in a short black dress? Few people know that in 1994 he received a monophonic gown from Valentin Abramovich, and since then has been infected by love for the mini. By the way, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the house Valentin Yudashkin Alla Borisovna arrived the same legendary dress, paying tribute to his favorite designer.
In recent years, Valentine Abramovich has become a rare guest in social events. What can we say, every trendy reception is constantly heard whispering among the beau monde – "it seems that this is its last way out". Two years ago, the couturier, unexpectedly for everyone, did not appear for the first time on her show as part of the Paris Fashion Week. At the end of the gorge, according to tradition, the guests were ready to make the famous Russian rain with applause, but did not go to the bow.
Then they began to say that the teacher had been prevented by serious health problems. And later it turned out that Yudashkin really had an urgent intervention due to kidney problems.
"I think all living people and people get sick, we're all under God, and you never know what's going to happen and how," the designer said.
He still does not discuss his terrible diagnosis, but his friends have not been hiding for a long time – doctors have diagnosed cancer with Yudashkin. "The trouble has come to our house, of course, the first thing that comes is a shock, or questions about why this happened," admitted Philip Kirkorov, "thank God it happened early and we managed. to be much worse. "We were all impressed by the courage with which Valentine and Marina took them in. How they survived, held back and repeated."
Valentin Yudashkin spoke for the first time of the operation
Since then, despite the positive predictions, the Maitre is literally melting before his eyes – his magnificent head of hair disappeared during the night, gray hair and bald patches appeared, lost a lot of weight and a deep blue under the eyes.
"Many have asked how their relatives Vali Yudashkin could lose the spread of metastasis, and he was not observed, if Valentine had only been hospitalized for two to two hours, he would have passed the tests, there would have been no problems. We always have time.Thank you God, the doctor managed to save him.It is true, they took away a kidney, a part of the lung, completely cleansed the stomach, "just before his death, Joseph Kobzon shared his life, and the same disease has mercilessly taken away his life.
Every day, Valentin Yudashkin continues to struggle for his life. And his salvation is work and a podium. Thus, at the beginning of October, the couturier presented a new collection in Paris. "We tried to combine the French mood of today with a Japanese cut and bring femininity back to the podium Today's time, we see, is very aggressive, I can not say it's not beautiful or not fashionable, but it's important to have some symbols, and the symbol is a woman ", admitted the designer.
And his women – his wife Marina and daughter Galina – are very robust and reliable support.
Unlike many colleagues, Valentin Abramovich was involved only once in a great scandal. In March 2015, in the center of the capital, an underground casino was found in the Marina Yudashkina apartment. The owner of 158 square meters then declared that the apartments were rented for a long time, and the resounding issue was quickly silenced. Six months after the withdrawal of the slot machines, the newlyweds made expensive repairs, after which they presented the living space to their daughter Galina, in which she now lives with her husband Peter Maksakov and two children, two-year-old Anatoly and middle-aged Arkady year.
Valentin Yudashkin's friends have always noticed that despite the worldwide recognition, the couturier had an incredible characteristic: to remain a modest and familiar man. His biography does not find a single line on numerous novels or broken hearts. He only loved once – his wife Marina. He made her a marriage proposal three days after they had met her, and personally, contrary to bad omens, he sewed her a wedding dress for her, decorating it with real orchids. For her sake, she has abandoned her styling career and since then has given him the confidence that she can do absolutely anything with her, even defeat cancer.
