I had so many things in 2015. Let’s start with my crazy trip to Bournemouth MLS College. I was studying English there, but actually, I was there for Ashish. I found out about Ashish right one year ago and emailed him about a big interview, later he told me he had to fly to India during my arrival to London. But I visited the VILLAGE and checked his latest collection, In Bournemouth I lived 2 weeks by myself. I am not a kind of a party person but my bestfriend brought me to any possible parties we could visit ( in Bournemouth there were all week parties with no weekends!). I got really sick and some night I forgot to give a key to my friend, so she was supposed to stay at a random dude’s house. That was awkward, scary, but hilarious at the end. We visited a lot of places in London, had a big shopping on Oxford Street and met so many new people. That trip was perfect. We wanted to fly to London again, but sadly we did not. I was lucky to touch and check Ashish’s latest collection. We came to London two days later menswear fashion week. I had all chances to visit that fashion show, but I had exam on that day, so I missed the fashion season.
Right after I came back to Moscow, I started going out. I have that one boy who parties a lot. Every weekend he goes out for some good techno and fun, but I am always against spending my time on nothing. In conclusion, I started going out too. We started partying (no, I did that just one time in 2 months, really!). But to be honest, I fell in love with techno music and its culture. He has proved me that going out is not that bad and sometimes it’s a lot of fun. But I am still against it and I still try to stay at home.
My first iconic collaboration with Elya Bulochka. She made me eat glitter and that video had a lot of hate comments and stuff like that, I did not actually care because I felt like I was a mermaid. Elya’s style is really iconic – all her creations remind of the beauty of ocean.
As soon as we got to February, I was surprised with my first visit to Milan Fashion Week. Why was I surprised? My mother is always spontaneous. I had no idea she would actually fly to Milan with me. In Milan I was invited to Moschino Fashion Show. It was a total fail when my iPhone fell on the runway, it happened because a woman next to me pushed me and I dropped the phone. That was funny and sad at the same moment. Also, I was lucky to visit Moschino office for the first time! I met Enzo, who works for Moschino for the first time and we took a picture of me and the bear ! I was so thankful to Moschino for the invitation !
In Milan I met 2 amazing girls. Maryleest – I never met her before, but my friend Ilfat introduced us to each other. She was absolutely gorgeous. Later, I met Sonya Esman and we had so much fun. After that night girls became closest friedns, I am happy for them!
When I arrived to Moscow, I had another big event – MBFWRussia. I had 5 outfits for 5 days. But my craziest outfit was for the 4th day of the fashion week. I made my eyebrows transparent. I almost had no eyebrows, I looked cute with that kind of face with no eyebrows, but I had to do black eyes all the time. Even after the fashion week I had to wear black eye shadows because I looked really weird with “no eyes” and no eyebrows.
Summer came really fast and I took David to SPB. The second capital of Russia. We had a lot of fun there. In less than 48 hours we did so many things and visited so many places, that was crazy.
I am proud I did a collaboration with FASHION GALAXY store. It is one of the most famous multi-brand stores in Moscow. I visited their boutique and made a video. The craziest moment of summer 2015 was my trip to Turkey with friends. We had two trips – at the end of May and in the middle of July. That was a crazy trip. On the first time we got lost on a beach 3 hours before check out. We wanted to walk down the beach and we got into a territory of another hotel. When we left the hotel we got absolutely lost. Later I visited Krasnodar, my bestfriend’s city. Melissa had a birthday party, but also we had some free time so we made a collaboration with STREET STYLE KRASNODAR – it’s the whole team which provides fashionistas with fashion news and fresh street style photos.
One of my favorite parts of 2015 was photoshoots. I had so many photoshoots I stopped counting them in May. But my favorite photoshoot was with David ! There was so much energy in photos and we killed it. My crazy trip to Vienna was one of my favorite moments too. I visited the pool party and missed the plane on 24 hours! We misunderstood the dates of our leaving and when we were on check-in, we realized we were late on 24 hours. But there were our friends in Vienna and we spent 2 more days with them!The biggest surprise of September was my appearance on pages of VOGUE RUSSIA. That was the biggest surprise for me and I was so happy I could not stay calm for a week ! That was the biggest goal in 2015. Even if I was a random person who appeared on that page, I was lucky to be the one! The whole 2015 I was friends with my lovely boy and a really talented illustrator – Aleksandr. He did a lot of projects with me and he drew me so many times !
One of the brightest moments of the year was my new hair style. I am not going to lie. I was influenced by some people and some thoughts in my head. I was feeling mentally not really good, so I changed everything. I became happier and started feeling more confident. That was a really important step.
I did a collaboration with MBFWRussia, they asked me to run their Instagram for the whole day, I was so happy. I never thought I would go that far. Milan fashion week and the day of my Birthday. I was nervous about my Birthday because that was the worst day ever. Not that day in Milan, I mean I had Birthdays! But I was so lucky to be on a Gucci fashion show and meet Bryanboy, Anna Dello Russo, Alexa Chung and many other celebrities ! That was amusing !
When I was in London, I finally visited ASHISH fashion show. I fell in love with his S/S 16 collection and the mood of the catwalk. It was sparkly and shiny. Also, I got into LONDON’s LOCAL STORY on Snapchat! I had more than 70K views, that was amazing.In 2015 I started taking part in crazy project. One of the craziest shoots I ever had was that one. I was almost naked and my nipples were covered with random accessories. After that photoshoot I was not scared to pose with no clothes on. When you try something for the first time, you are not scared for the second time.Right before the MFW and LFW I got my hair shorter.
I experienced both fashion weeks with Melissa Mustafa. We visited hundreds of places and a lot of shows – Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana – we were lucky !
