LA Fashion Week and The Mademoiselle French Collection Magazine Announcement

Dear friends, As some of you know I have done San Francisco,New York, and Paris Fashion Weeks. However, I haven't done LA until now, even though, LA is much closer than Paris and New York. Every single one of the Fashion Weeks I did was amazing and unique in it's own and one of the best things about it of course were the new connections of amazing friends and faithful customers I met along the way. I just came back from LA this week and although it was only a three day day. It feels that I spent much longer there because of how eventful that weekend was. The trip started with attending Style Fashion Week, where I ended up running...

Announcing MM on UGallery

Today is a big day for MM Art & Fashion ... especially the "Art" side!  I am proud to announce that I am now exhibiting and selling my original paintings on UGallery, the leading curated online art gallery.  It has been an exciting development because the owner actually found me last year and invited me to exhibit but I was busy at that time.  I finally had a chance to follow up and get things set up and I have been impressed with both the process and the support.  It is great to have the world-wide reach of the gallery, but have them headquartered right here in the Bay.   Here is my artist page.  I initially have 6 pieces...

Rumi Awards 2016

2016 finished with a bang, as I had a privilege of being nominated for the best international fashion designer by Rumi Awards along with small group of selected designers from Europe, Asia, and US. Each designer had only 3 minutes to present their collections - and to be honest, this part made me a bid worried.  Although we had the option to present as many designs as we wanted, I decided to go for quality instead of quantity. I designed a Holiday Mini Unique Collection consisting of three one-of-a-kind dresses based on my original artworks with waterproof LED lights inserted into them. One of the gowns (worn by my brand ambassador Svetlana Jilenko,  who also represented Russia in the Rumi...
