"Tell us about your yourself and your brand.

...In my work I use authentic traditional clothing and jewellery, I work with museums, collectors, and ethnographers."

"What do you like the most about what you do?

An opportunity to revive the history. Those characters, that came to us with old photographs, paintings and engravings, by combination of people and antique garments they become a reality. It is magic."

"Which one (project) was the most challenging, and why?

Post-factum the “UIA*. Love " became difficult for me, a story about the feelings and sad farewell of the couple during the war. We created it in 2013, and a year later it became a reality: Russian military aggression began, women had to see off their men to the war. A terrible feeling of repeating the story.

(editor's note - *UIA /Ukrainian Insurgent Army/ armed liberation force, that during World War II fought against both Nazi Germany and Soviet Union for the establishment of a united, independent national state on Ukrainian ethnic territory.)."
