"We are going to congratulate the legendary couturier Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Zaitsev on his birthday!", - the humorist wrote in his account. The birthday boy appeared at the celebration in a flowered jacket and a black bowler hat. Alla Pugacheva, who was sitting next to her as a muse, was in a black dress and a red hat with a veil.
Some subscribers doubted that Zaitsev, who had been suffering from Parkinson's disease for several years, was able to control what was happening, and accused his guests of self-promotion on a sick person. "Mockery! Slava Zaitsev can barely speak and walk, but they dragged him out to some kind of party", "At first I thought it was a dummy until I moved my fingers".
However, according to press reports, the couturier personally took care of the guest list and the script for the holiday, which included the fashion show. In the banquet hall, writes Channel 5, Zaitsev entered with a cane, but dancing.
The fact that he suffers from Parkinson's disease, which causes neuronal death and tremors, Zaitsev said several years ago. According to rumors, the fashion designer has difficulty moving around his mansion and does not always recognize relatives.
