Kira Plastinina is Showing at New York Fashion Week

Kira Plastinina--the Russian teen designer, best known for epic failure in the US market--is showing at New York Fashion Week on February 17. The brand filed for Chapter 11 in January of 2009 with $54 million in debts owed to more than 100 creditors. Somehow, they were able to relaunch last November, under the moniker Lublu. She's even got a store in Los Angeles. (A little background--Kira's dad is a Russian dairy tycoon worth over $600 million. He is clearly her major backer.) Click through to browse some looks from Kira's spring collection. Why we're so fascinated with her, we're not quite sure, but we do know that we'll be at the presentation.
