Two years ago I successfully completed my studies as a Fashion Designer and Textile Engineer at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Germany. Prior to my studies, I trained for three years and got my diploma in dress-making. During and after my studies, I interned at two major German Fashion companies, Escada and Adidas/Stella McCartney. My illustrating and artwork skills are advanced. I have extensive practical experience with the leading CAD software (Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign). Having lived in three different countries, I also speak four international languages fluently (German, Russian and French). The last company I worked for was a start up high-fashion line for young plus- size women called “Supernova“.
