Tiara Ball of Petr Axenoff at the hotel "Astoria"

    Presentation of the new Axenoff jewllery collection "Princess Anastasia" dedicated to the youngest daughter of Emperor Nicholas II was held in the format of the Ball

    November 24, all secular Moscow moved to the northern capital. The occasion was the presentation of a new line of jewelry brand Axenoff called Princess Anastasia - in honor of the youngest daughter of Emperor Nicholas II Grand Duchess Anastasia. For one night St. Petersburg hotel "Astoria" has transferred its guests in the beginning of the last century on a real royal ball: the walls of halls decorated with portraits of members of the Romanov Royal Family, written by the artist Tatiana Rivillis specifically for Tiara Ball, and decorators Yuliya Nguen and Oksana Babayev recreated the royal box with a huge canopy and gilded porcelain eagles.

    The main element of ballroom dress code was a tiara or kokoshnik Axenoff. Host of the evening Petr Axenoff appeared  in Circassian - a copy of the one that once wore the last Russian tsar.  Student of the third course MGAHI Anastasia Thompson performed the role of the Muse of the collection - Anastasia Romanova.

    The evening began with a waltz from the ballet "Swan Lake" performed by a symphony orchestra. By the end of the dance theatrical performance took place: the lights went out, and  Grigory Rasputin came to the throne, and then the whole imperial family entered the room. In the dance-fight Rasputin fought with Princess Anastasia, but in the end he was banished.

    Guests of Tiara Ball also were excited to see the gypsy ensemble and dinner in the Russian tradition of a special dessert Amber Room in the form of a precious jewellery box, which came up with Petr Axenoff.

    Tiara Ball was visited by Snezhana Georgieva Oxana Bondarenko, Daria Lisichenko Anna Ivchenko, and many others.

    Gypsy choir sang. Women in white dresses and men in the Circassian (as in the famous scene from the movie "My Sweet and Tender Beast") sang songs. Tables laden with caviar and sturgeon, a dessert Amber Room in the form of a precious jewellery box presented by Petr himself. The guests made selfie with a stuffed bear and literally bathed in the symbols of power: if the Russian soul had a ball, it will not stop.
