I am a very creative person by nature and can't stop thinking about creating some new designs for my swimwear brand. Before my brand, I was a model for about 12 years and has been travelling around the world. I also worked as an Interior designer for a year but then realised that fashion is in my blood and that I want my line.
Katya, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Fashion Label?
Like I already said I was modelling around the world and always had a passion for fashion.
Who is your inspiration in life Katya? How do you keep inspired?
I would say myself. Every year I am inspiring myself through challenges and tasks, and I realised that human could achieve more than they think. Other inspirations are coming through travel.
We all make mistakes Katya; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Fashion Label; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I am learning every day and will learn all my life. I believe that as a human we have to make mistakes to move forward with a better understanding of yourself and others. I am my boss at the moment so any mistake I do I have to judge myself.
Katya, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Fashion Label, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I do my best to understand what my clients need and work around it. It is a very hard task, and I am still learning.
Please tell us, Katya, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Label?
This happening every day.
Katya, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I am very fresh brand and still learning.
Katya, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Label. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My first swimwear collection. More yet to come!
Katya, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Designing a collection is very exciting time as I could do what I want and choose every detail from scratch. The most difficult is to find the right manufacturer with great quality fabrics and finishes.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Label?
Do not give up! Do not rush! Do not overthink!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I am looking for great photographers, models/influencers.
