My father was a photographer, and our whole house was always full of pictures from different cities, including London, Milan and Paris. I also grew up in an environment of colorful books, among which are often lost my schoolbooks. When most of my classmates got acquainted with the works of classical literature, I studied the biography of Stella MakKkartni. At age 15, I begged my parents to buy a little black dress. The ultimate dream was to look at least a little similar to Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow with their finesse. Budget dress from Banana Republic was far from ideal, but it changed my life.
