VLADIMIR Putin’s "secret love child” has launched her own fashion brand with a show in St Petersburg, where models were spotted wearing nipple tassels.
Luiza Rozova, 18, also known as Elizaveta Krivonogikh, unveiled her fashion brand called 123th Ave in an 18th-century Russian palace.
The university student who is also in demand as a DJ at fashionable nightspots, said her brand offers “amateur clothes for every day.”
She appeared wearing a mask in front of an audience to acknowledge applause at the Fashion Show Russian Brands event.
A Russian opposition outlet alleged last year that she is Putin’s secret daughter born to cleaner-turned-multimillionaire Svetlana Krivonogikh, 45, who owns a nightspot featuring "erotic shows.”
Putin, 68, has not publicly acknowledged Luiza, nor any relationship with her mother, who has remained silent on the speculation.
Bradford University visual computer expert Hassan Ugail said that her pictures show a “phenomenal resemblance to the Russian president” and is highly likely to be related.
Luiza admitted to Russian GQ that she “probably” looks “similar” to a young Putin, but did not confirm the relationship.
Her middle name is Vladimirovna which means her father’s first name is Vladimir.
She told the magazine that her fashion line started when she "decided to sort my mother's wardrobe, put a few things up for sale, and they quickly flew like hot pies”.
She said: “The idea came to me to make my own brand, and I'm really developing a capsule mini-collection right now.
“This is not something large-scale, I'm still not a designer.
“Rather, amateur clothes for every day."
The clothing line was unveiled to a crowd of the city’s beau monde in the Trubetskoy-Naryshkin palace, with one model only wearing nipple pasties.
Lately, visitors to her social media have tried to find out Luiza’s views of a wave of anti-Putin protests in Russia.
She ignored the posts and did not respond.
Last month the university student celebrated her 18th birthday by DJing at a trendy Moscow club and was reportedly seen for the first time being driven by an official government car.
Back in November, a report in Proekt – or Project – suggested her mother Putin’s lover in the late 1990s and early 2000s, including the period when he headed Russia’s FSB counterintelligence service.
The report claimed Svetlana now has a £76 million fortune including a significant property portfolio and is a shareholder in a major Russian bank, making Luiza an heiress.
On social media Luiza had earlier said “London would be great” when asked where in the world she would like to live.
Putin’s spokesman said when the story originally broke that the love child allegations were “not very convincing” and “de facto unfounded”, but this has not prevented widespread speculation.
Putin’s relationship to Svetlana supposedly ended around the time he was first romantically linked to Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Alina Kabaeva, now 37, head of a major pro-Kremlin media company.
Putin has two adult daughters Maria, 36, and Katerina, 34, from his marriage to former Kremlin first lady Lyudmila Putina which ended in 2013.
