Designer Spotlight: Vika Gazinskaya

You may remember the previous post I did about Vika. I emailed her and she agreed to answer some questions for me. I was so anxious to see what does she think about things, her inner motivation, the passion that drives her to continue what she's doing... Of course, I couldn't resist asking some more specific questions about trends...

Lately, Vika has been appearing on almost every style site. You should know her if you've been following the photos that emerged during the fashion weeks. She attended the Paris FW, and she was featured on The Sartorialist, and 3 days of Vika on altamira nyc.

Tell us about what you do. I design clothes.

What determined you to want to work in fashion? I just knew it. From the last class of school I understood, I would be a designer.

Where do you get inspiration from? From everywhere and it’s true. Even running on the race track.

How long ago did you start in the industry?
2 years ago.

What would you suggest to someone who wants to do what you do? Never stop. It’s really hard, but you should start this career when you are 100% a fan of it.

Who do you look up to in the fashion world and why?
Stefano!!! YSL.

What motivates you to keep doing what you do? One photographer said to me: “Vika, fashion is in your blood”. I agree.

Favourite collections so far for the next SS 09 season? It was really a dull season. I liked Nina Ricci, YSL, Lanvin, Margiela. It was not something new, but anyway they were beautiful!

What are your personal must haves for this fall?
Fall ’09? Think - black lips. You know, I did the same make up on my show (fall ’08) a year ago… :)

Does your personal style influence the collections you design?
I think yes. In different proportions it's always like that.

What do you do in your spare time? Sleep. I do not have enough time for that.

What is your greatest wish? Ask me in 10 years – I will answer.

Like her style? Me too! Now go visit her site and see her collections here.

Sweet treats,
