Sasha Glybina (19) is a young designer from the Ukraine. She has started her own brand SASHA GLYBINA about two years ago. After a summer course in St.Martins (London) and an internship at the London Fashion Week, Sasha has showed her collection at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Kiev in October 2011.
Can you tell us anything about your S/S 2012 collection? Inspiration, any hints?
This is my first collection, consisting of more than thirty looks. The source of inspiration is – graffiti, street arts and artists. Sketches of this collection I´ve painted in the St. Martin´s school of Fashion (London) in summer 2011. Finished drawing directly on the return flight to Kiev. As soon as I returned home, I looked for fabrication. In general the process has started!
What made you interested in working in fashion?
Since childhood I knew exactly, that I wanted to be a fashion designer. I waited for the right moment to begin – and now the time has come! I’m very happy that little by little many of my plans become reality!
Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere, because it’s a collaboration of everything that surrounds me
You studied at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, what effect does London have on your creativity?
London reflects me perfectly. When I got there I couldn’t believe that I was there. I felt very comfortable and enjoyed every second of my stay, accompanied with creating a collection and inventing plans for the future.
Tell me about your experience with MB Fashion Week Kiev. How was it?
At this stage of my young life it was the first large-scale experience with an organisation in the world of fashion. I consciously agreed to ask myself this crazy pace of work from season to season, because day and night, no matter where in the world I was breathing and living my work. Now I am preparing the AW/12-13 collection which will be presented in March at MB Fashion week Kiev
If you could pick anything, what would be your dream project?
A project to become one of the most successful brand in the world.
Developing my brand everyday, to improve the quality of work and most importantly to make people happy with my clothing SG.
Famous last words?
I wish everyone to be themselves accept this reality as it really is only then they will acquire all of its meaning
Thank you so much Sasha!
Thanks a lot!
