Acclaimed Russian fashion designer and street-style icon Vika Gazinskaya has made her name combining demi-couture construction, voluminously structured designs, whimsically hand-stitched details (such as hand-drawn prints and embroidery), with luxurious materials sourced from Italy and France. Gazinskaya graduated from Moscow State University with a degree in fashion design. Thereafter, she began working under the affluent Evelina Khromchenko at L'Officiel magazine. Gazinskaya launched her fashion label in 2006 soon after leaving L'Officiel magazine. In 2012 Gazinskaya was nominated for the highly recognized ANDAM fashion award and remains a prominent fashion designer.
