Ex-spy Anna Chapman to present her clothing line in Antalya
Former spy Anna Chapman, who was sent back from the United States to Russia in a major spy swap in 2010, is going to present her own clothing line at a fashion show in the Turkish resort of Antalya.
"A Russian brand will be presented at Dosso Dossi Fashion Show 2014 on January 9 for the first time in the exhibition's history. Reporters and fashion magazines' buyers from all over the world will have a chance to see the first women's clothing collection by Anna Chapman," a spokesman for FundServiceBank, where Chapman works as an advisor to the bank's president, told Interfax.
Chapman and another nine Russian citizens were arrested in the U.S. on espionage charges in June 2010. They were subsequently swapped for U.S. spies arrested in Russia.
Chapman became the FundServiceBank president's investment and innovation advisor in October 2010. After a visit to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, which Russia leases from Kazakhstan, in 2011, Chapman proposed designing new uniforms for Russian cosmonauts.
