Ex-Spy Anna Chapman Launches Fashion Line

Former Russian spy Anna Chapman
Former Russian spy Anna Chapman is launching her signature fashion line.

Chapman returned to Russia in 2010 in a high-profile Russia-U.S. spy swap and now formally works as an adviser at a Russian bank.

She has created a line of dresses and accessories, which a spokesman for the bank said were in a price range and styling that is "accessible to practically any Russian woman."

The collection was presented on January 9 in Antalya, a Turkish resort popular with Russian tourists.

The clothes are to go on sale in February in Russia, first online and then in stores in cities including Moscow and Sochi, the venue for the Winter Olympics.

Since her return to Russia, the flamboyant Chapman regularly appears at social events but has kept silent about her spying past.
