The 31-year-old designer came from humble beginnings in Moscow and has come a long way, all thanks to her passion for fashion and the arts. Now, she has famously pulled Russian fashion out of its fur-and-Swarovski stereotype with her signature extreme style.

The flared skirts and dresses, tromp l’oeil embellished tops, and cocoon jackets are boldly architectural but surprisingly wearable. Already, her client base is large and high-end, with supporters like the famous fashion journalist Miroslava Duma.

Gazinskaya has dubbed her pieces as “demi-couture” and they are handcrafted by her tiny production team based in Moscow. Right now, there are only a limited number of pieces available to the public at Shopbop and Farfetch. We can hardly sit still for more!
