ABOUT

Hello, fashion enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and technophiles!

I am a millennial from Eastern Europe with some Manhattan fashion-related work experience. While earning my bachelor of arts degree in global management, I worked at a Fortune 500 company where I coordinated leather apparel for product placement and celebrity endorsement. After graduation, I moved to Milan to study fashion. Eventually, I started this blog in order to find kindred spirits.

Fashion allows me to nurture my creative and entrepreneurial sides. I love exploring new trends, and following up on innovations. Yet, design and self-expression inspire me the most. One day you will find me focusing on graphic design, another day it’s the functionality of a clothing piece or the way a particular dress is constructed.

I think that design can be applied to almost every aspect of our lives – from the way we perceive people to the way we “design” our lives. Life is not always a clean, straight line. Sometimes, it’s a messy sketch of experiments, mistakes and trials that enables us to discover our purpose.

I also dislike perfectionism. It certainly helps us to achieve great things, yet it also removes us from introspection and taking chances. Ultimately, it’s unhealthy. When we focus on our strengths and nurture them, we experience joy and natural growth. In general, we become much happier people.

Thanks for joining my world and I hope that this blog will inspire you to create more, love yourself more and ultimately live your life to the fullest.

Ciao,
Lena

  1. In Russia, fashionistas aren’t afraid of “animal” products like leather and fur. It’s a necessity of life that in cold weather you wear natural materials, pleather and faux fur will not keep you warm in Moscow! 🙂

    • It’s hard for me to find great quality apparel in Milwaukee area; therefore I shop in Chicago area or online. Sometimes I shop at HM and Zara and mix them with designer pieces. Thanks for visiting my blog!
