Fashion design and dressmaking was Nina’s hobby since she was a teenager. However, her real occupation was … rocket science! That’s right, back in the Soviet Union days, Nina worked in Engineering R&D where Soviet rockets were designed and tested. She was creating unforgettable dresses and outfits by night.
As an engineer she won awards. As an amateur fashion designer not only did she win awards, but she was able to create patterns, and bring her award-winning designs to life for her customers.
Her strength is what’s scientifically called spatial cognition, and in simple language – a great ability to see, and build, things in 3D. This ability of hers really helped to perfectly fit complex garments to the many figures of her customers.
No two women are alike, but everyone wants their dress to fit well. There is a magic in turning a flat piece of fabric into a 3D garment that fits in a manner designed to accentuate only one’s best features.
25 years ago, Nina left engineering behind, to become a full-time dressmaker. Many of her customers have been thanking and following her since.
