From Russia With Love
In Paper Magazine's August addition they have a piece on Kira Plastinina. Kira is a post communist Russian, SIXTEEN year old fashion designer. Her father discovered her drawings and noticed her talent as a young girl. Since then they have opened over 40 stores in Russia and one opened in New York in May.
"Kira is in the 10th grade at an Anglo-American school in Moscow; she works with her design team in Kira Plastinina design studieo and does her homework on the drive home at night. Kira's store in New York features a interactive high-tech photo booth and a giant pink pacifier that doubles as a couch."
Um, that sounds kinda rad. Keep an eye out for this girl. She is on the rise.
