國際著名的俄籍服裝設計師 - Vika Gazinskaya,對時尚的熱忱不因當時物資條件與大環境上的困難而卻步,自進入莫斯科國立大學攻讀服裝設計開始,積極努力的她一方面累積多方面的知識、一方面爭取能展現才能的平台。早期,Vika 以年輕設計師之姿入圍 Smirnoff 公司所舉辦的比賽,得以踏入丹麥的 Saga Furs 公司實習。在 2002 年時,藉由「俄羅斯剪影慈善基金會」舉辦的國內比賽中獲取俄羅斯版的法國頂尖時尚雜誌 《L’Officiel》內的實習工作機會,而因此成為其雜誌總編輯 Eveline Khromchenko 底下的正職編輯助理。2004 年決意離開雜誌社走上自由業造型師這條路,為 MTV 及幾位私人口袋名單的客戶做專案因而結識日後資助她辦初秀的加州藝術家 Bart Dorsa。2006年 Vika 在莫斯科推出個人同名品牌;最初的六季以戲劇表演的形式呈現、將她喜愛的元素化為設計概念。Vika 在時尚產業的傑出表現讓她在2012年享譽國際的 ANDAM 時尚大獎被提名為最終六位入圍者之一。

 

Vika Gazinskaya 的設計以極簡結構主義為主,透過獨創的結構式剪裁、俐落的線條感與簡明色調表現服裝張力。而天馬行空的創造力和童心未泯的活潑因子,將未來的摩登剛硬與過去的簡約柔美相融合;其創作如同引領我們進入一段將過去、現在與未來幻化為一的優雅時空。

 

不僅風格前衛的設計令人印象深刻,本人俏麗的外表與別具特色的穿搭使她成為自己的活招牌,在時裝週的各大時裝秀場外,Vika 是時尚部落客與媒體爭相

拍照及採訪的街拍焦點。她曾經以一襲自己設計的全白洋裝搭配知名運動品牌Nike 的鴨舌帽和球鞋去看高級訂製服發表會,巧妙的配件運用混搭出高低時尚穿衣哲學,令人為之驚艷,充分證明比起刻意裝扮,有時來些輕鬆幽默的元素更能突顯個人時尚。

 

她的一票名人好友,如時尚網站 buro247.ru 的創辦人 Miroslava Duma、知名女裝設計師 Ulyana Sergeenko、造型設計師 Elena Perminova 及時尚部落客 Hanneli Mustaparta 都是 Vika Gazinskaya 品牌的忠實擁護者。此外,在國際知名的複合式精品店,列舉巴黎的 Colette、紐約的 Fivestory、杜拜的 Symphony,以及知名線上購物平台 Net-a-Porter、Avenue 32 和 Moda Operandi 中皆佔有一席之地!時尚地位不容忽視。
