About me
I have graduated from London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, specializing in fashion design, tailoring and branding. Being based in the trendiest areas such as Soho and Shoreditch while always involved in fashion helped me develop a certain feel for upcoming trends and an attentive eye for street fashion. 7 years of study and work for various companies in London: from small niche brands to large commercial conglomerates, gave me extensive experience and a detailed perspective of all areas and processes of the fashion industry: from initial sketch, trend and fabric research, CAD, specs, pattern-cutting, sample development, manufacturing to final product, marketing, wholesale and retail. Working in a multicultural team of international specialists allowed me to develop excellent communication skills and professional ethics. I have had the opportunity to then work in Asia for 3 years, where I gained experience with outsource manufacturing and sourcing wholesale fabrics and trimmings on a global scale. Alongside my career I have been running a brand of sustainable Avant Garde clothing and accessories. Throughout the 2 years of my leadership we have managed to showcase at Paris Fashion week showrooms, participate in Berlin Fashion Week, Russian Fashion Week, arrange various catwalks and presentations in Moscow, London and Paris, opened up a corner in Kuala Lumpur and Moscow, get published in such renown magazines as Kaltblut, Cable, Huf (cover), Elle and Vogue Russia. This has been an invaluable up-to-date experience that enriched my overview of all the processes and techniques involved in the fashion industry.
  • BANZAi!
    BANZAi!The BANZAi! collection is a personal project: something outside any frames, markets or function. It's a shout of soul: BANZAi! is what samurais shout when they attack. The collection is inspired by the blend of samurai armour, ancient Chinese craft textiles and biker subculture. Special techniques developed to achieve the sharp silhouettes, the half circular blow up effect of the silk organza, the texture of the leather applique.
