BIOGRAPHY
I was born in 1982 in Yerevan, Armenia. I have been raised in a family of a painter, and in a community of artists, since my grandfather was a painter and I have been surrounded by art since my early childhood. That must be the reason that I find inspiration in art more than in anything else. I have a university degree in translation studies and another degree in fashion design which i have studied in Florence, Italy. I started working when I was 15, and had the opportunity to design stage costumes for Armenian celebrities at a very young age. Since then I knew that fashion was the only thing I wanted to dedicate my life to. I have done many fashion related jobs: art direction for fashion magazines, styling for music videos and television, directing music videos, etc. But my main interest has always been fashion design. Thats why I decided to get a professional degree and to focus on designing. After graduating from Accademia Italiana I started working for one of the best companies that promotes  "Made in Itlay" - Dolce & Gabbana. It was a very useful and important experience and gave me the courage to start my own brand after so many years of working in the field. After moving to live in Italy not only my personal style has evolved, heavily influenced by Italian art, but also my work ethics and my perception of fashion in general has changed drastically.
