About us

I was always obsessed with the concept of beauty and harmony. From the very childhood I was captivated by beautiful things, bright people and strong personalities. My story is about travelling around the world for best fashion education, training and communicating with fashion and image professionals, to get best styling practices, fashion experience to bring that to ukrainian and post-soviet markets.

Having got education from best fashion business schools in Europe (Istituto Marangoni(Milan, London), NABA (Nuova Academia de belle Arts) and St. Martin's College of Fashion (Milan) and Fashion Institute of Technology (NYC, USA), having been trained by worldly-known professionals in creative fashion styling, fashion management and PR, as well as fashion business organization, having worked more than 5 years in the world of professional fashion, making fashion shootings (both styling and production for commercials, fashion stories shootings, beauty and celebrity styling), teaching fashion styling and image-consulting courses, making fashion-shows and fashion events organization...I decided to open my own company where I'll combine all that knowledge and experience in image-consulting, fashion styling and branding, giving the opportunity to create unique images and successful personal as well as fashion brands based on personal needs and having exclusive features.
