London Dreams w/ Ekaterina Kukhareva

There are a few things in this world that make a girl feel as beautiful as a long, shimmering gown does. If my gown is a perfect fit and makes me feel invincible, what could ever stop me? Nothing. That’s exactly the attitude I need to have with or without the dress because you really can achieve anything you set your mind to. 

I never expected to be where I am today. Today I am able to reach out to people and bring them not only fun, lifestyle pieces, but also important issues.

This project with Ekaterina Kukhareva is close to my heart (not because it’s the most fabulous photo shoot I’ve done yet) but because Ekaterina Kukhareva and I both bonded over 2 things: Our love for fashion and our heritage. She and I were both born and raised in the Ukraine. Who is Ekaterina Kukhareva? She has shown at London Fashion Week and has top A-listers wearing her clothing, like the Kardashians!

If you haven’t been living under a rock, I’m sure you’re aware of the tension between Ukraine and Russia, resulting in the 2014 Crimean crisis. No, Ukraine is not part of Russia… There are a few things that you expect to always be concrete in your life – your family, your country, and your shoe collection. It’s strange to know that the part of the country where I had spent every summer vacation when I was little is no longer there. It will never be the same.

We brought you this beautiful project not only because of Ekaterina’s beautiful work, but also to bring awareness to the 2014 Crimean crisis.  It impacts people all over the world and even more, the people in Ukraine. It impacts our future and our families back home. #PrayForUkraine.
