Heaven Has Heels Magazine about Ekaterina:
… her unique design aesthetic is the result of her Ukrainian background combined with her London base.
Ekaterina in the interview to the above magazine:
“I think it is a culture and the people that surround you that develop your taste and aesthetic. Growing up in Ukraine has definitely influenced me with its very rich culture and traditions.
Moving to London – a megapolis where people come from all over the world – I get to see people from various cultures and backgrounds which make you discover new inspiring things on a daily basis”.
