Études et Préludes
I was inspired this Spring season by a person I met, her name is Maria Kochetkova.
We met about 2 years ago, she first saw some of my clothes in a store in London, we met a couple of times through common friends in Paris and I have seen her perform in San Francisco where she is based.
This summer, we worked on a short film together, a video introduction to this collection.
Maria is one of the best Ballet dancer in the world, she trained at the Bolshoi in Moscow and danced for the London Royal Ballet.
She currently is part of the principal dancer at the San Francisco Ballet, she moves with amazing grace and she is an athlete. She is the inspiration for my collection.
