How did you start your career?
My career started when I was 17 years old, back in my home town in Ukraine when I began to model and in the meantime I was studying Fashion business. I’ve always been into fashion since I was a kid and I used to even make my own clothes. Then when I started to earn my own money I was really happy that I could finally buy my favourite designer pieces. I also worked as a freelance stylist in Asia and in the past year I designed for my own brand – which I then decided to close in order to dedicate my time entirely to digital and content creation.

Everything that surround me! I take inspiration from design, interiors, travelling, culture and I try to reflect it in my personal style.

Always find the time for Tea-time and face masks!
