Born in Ukraine to a cross-cultural family and raised in Georgia, I studied in the United States, which led to a career at the United Nations in New York. However, my passion lies in design so back in the late 90s—obsessed with all things Alexander McQueen did—I finally left the UN to study Fashion Design at FIT's campus in Florence, Italy. A year at FIT was followed by four years of work in the entertainment industry, making costumes for circus plays, advertisements and movies. This experience taught me to think outside of the box when I created my first collection of handbags in 2001. The entire collection was bought by the Vitoria Museum of Contemporary Art from Vitoria.
