Founder X Creative Director
The founder and creative director of Russkys is Kristina Kuzmina.
After graduating in banking and finance from London School of Economics, Kristina worked with prestigious global luxury brands including L'Oréal, Maison Margiela, Cacharel, Harrods, and Jaguar.
The fusion of technology and fashion in Russkys reflects Kristina’s background, since her parents were nuclear scientists in USSR and her sister started an international modelling and acting career at a very early age.
'' During my time working as a consultant in business & fashion industries, I came to realise there is a huge gap in the market when it comes to fashion being individual and a reflection of people who wear it rather than people who make it. Mass production is no longer as exciting as it used to be. On the other hand, small brands and independent designers are struggling to produce regular collections due to budget and time limitations. So, I decided to take on a challenge and create a new modular brand and connected platform which caters to all fashion lovers who want to be versatile, look beautiful and be ready for any special occasion on their way to the next arrangement.
I am a mom of 2 and very proud of it. Working during pandemic with 2 being at home and tones of work that must be done, it was hard, but I have loved every minute of it. Alongside an innovative concept, I am creating a movement bringing a new vision of fashion that allows people to try their hand at design and create their own looks. To be their own brand. ''
