Read more about her journey below!
Where are you from?
I am from Ufa, a city in Central Russia with a population of 1 million people
How did you get started in this field?
I was discovered at age 13 by a local modeling agency. I was very tall (5'9), the same height I am now. I decided to give it a try and now I'm very happy and thankful I did :)
Who are some of your favorite icons that have influenced you?
I was always interested in fashion! As a teenager I loved watching supermodels of the 90's walking down the runway, or seeing the iconic CK Jeans, Revlon and CoverGirl campaigns in the magazines.
I feel so lucky that I've had the opportunity to work with top brands such as L'Oreal, Marc Jacobs, Lancome, Kiehls, Estee Lauder, Make Up For Ever, Johnson & Johnson, and Pepsi among others. Also to work with designers like Jonathan Simkai, Prabal Gurung, Alexis Marchesa, Ted Baker and Randy Fenoli has been a dream come true.
I enjoy running in Central Park, doing hot yoga and taking street style pictures with my friends
Long Term Goals?
My goal is to become one of the top fashion influencers and launch my own brand!
