It is amazing how your life can change in such a short period of time.
Only 3 years ago I was a chubby girl, studying culture and art at Moscow University. I was raised on the seaside of Crimea. I always liked to dream of new lands and felt the potential for something special.
I love my family insanely, they are my support, my heart and the most loyal fans anyone can imagine. The world of fashion was always tempting for me as an admirer of timeless beauty and creativity but it also seemed to exist in a totally different dimension. Once I decided to challenge myself, it all started. Quitting donuts and Russian sausages (a.k.a kolbasa) was not easy, to be honest! It is funny to mentally go back in those times because today I thrive without any meat and make vegan ice creams. Along with that sports were always a part of my life, I played volleyball quite well at school and used to do gymnastics and folk dances.
Today I wake up with birds (if those exist in Manhattan) and do ashtanga yoga to start my morning and feel my best. The fashion industry is still extremely magical and exacting. The little difference is now you can meet me behind the curtains being gratefully involved in sacrament of art.
