Elvira in a few words

I have been studying fine arts and fashion design for 11 years, starting college at the age of 15. I have been determined to become a fashion designer since my childhood but I wanted to get a comprehensive knowledge in the fields of academic drawing and painting in order to master perfectly the colours and shapes. Classical painting remains one of my passions, but I also studied fabric design, hand weaving and even interior 3D design before focusing on fashion in itself.
In 2015, I had an opportunity to work as an intern for Emmanuel Ungaro, where I designed a womenswear collection for their Japanese license.
I also have a 4-year experience as a fashion designer for a Moscow clothing company.
Last year, I created my first fashion collection, without any support, which means that the mood board, silhouette design, pattern making, draping method and sewing were entirely realized by myself. This collection consisted of 45 looks and received an international award in Shanghai. As a consequence, I signed a contract with a Moscow luxury interior boutique to showcase my evening wear collection.
From 2016 to 2018, I also taught academic drawing and fashion illustration at the Intermark International Design College in Shanghai and was responsible for interviewing and selecting the prospective students.
I am a very hard-working person, full of curiosity and rigour, and I am always eager to learn from experienced and talented people to develop my creativity. I particularly admire the creations of Elie Saab, both his evening wears and prêt-à-porter collections, for the simplicity and elegance of their cut and their strong sense of colours and balanced details.
As I attended classes recently in haute couture draping and also technology of garments and fabric manipulation, I feel quite confident in sketching, draping, sewing and making technical drawings on Illustrator or any other software programs.
I have also a good command of jewel and luxury accessories design.

I met Elvira as fashion professor for accessories in the university of Shanghai. I highly recommend her for several reasons: - Reactive: she learns very quick because she knows how to listen and retranscribe by bringing her creative touch. - Creativity and innovation: Elvira is very creative. She takes inspiration from art or other domains. She brings technical solutions. She re-thinks the use of the product and brings innovation and beauty. - Culture: Elvira has a strong artistic and fashion culture, always completed and improved. - Passion: she is fascinated by fashion and art and has no limits to acheive her projects! - Professional: She does not fall into the trap of free and absurd creativity in order to provoke her audience but creates fair, elegant and feminine products. She also knows how to decrypt the DNA of the brand and brings technical and artistic innovations. Elvira masters all the creation steps : benchmark, handsketching, Adobe Illustrator, and modeling. Indeed, she creates her own prototypes. I highly recommend her as a fashion designer and think that her level of creativity is outstanding as it is based on professional artistic skills.
