NEVER GIVE UP AND KEEP DOING WHAT YOU REALLY LOVE. 

My aesthetic is a balance of controversies.
It is a mix of dramatic chic and laconic elegance with some harshness.

In my design, I try to search for new ways to express familiar things.
Mostly I take an inspiration from history and modern technologies,
and I combine their opposite bases into a new form.

I'm a young fashion russian-finnish designer located in Helsinki, Finland. I was born in a small town in Southern Russia, where I also spent my childhood and teenage years. Since I remember, my dream has been to become a fashion designer. Now many steps have been taken towards fulfillment of that dream, but very much is yet to be done. The challenge is accepted, I'm here and I'm ready for what future brings.
