A few words about me.
Now it is fashionable to create for yourself some kind of history, secrecy and significance. I adhere to the format of openness and am proud that I am just me, without invented stories and unnecessary words.
I have no higher professional education in the field of fashion. In 2004, I graduated from the Faculty of Law of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, then studied at the graduate school of IGPAN at the Academy of Sciences and defended my dissertation in international law. I worked first in a defense company, then in a metallurgical lawyer. After defending my dissertation in 2009, I realized that I could no longer deny my nature and decided to pursue my childhood dream. I have dreamed of my brand since I was eight and often wore clothes and even shoes of my own design. She sewed 70 percent of her wardrobe according to her sketches in the atelier. The interest of those around me inspired me to make my most cherished dream come true.
Since then - for ten years now I have been continuously learning everything that is required for my profession. It was not difficult for me to organize a business, open an LLC and issue a trademark, I am a lawyer, but I have been studying everything that is needed for the work of a designer and creative director since that very 2009 year. At first it was a basic design and sewing course. I took private lessons on how to build work with factories, learned how to build templates, sew and even embroider on machines, make technical drawings and those. assignments for factories, competently purchasing fabrics from Europe and much more. I learned Japanese layout design and even started to master Luneville embroidery. Then there was work with tanners, jewelers and much more. This is a tremendous experience.
As soon as I decided to make 3D clothes, I was trained in 2 3D schools at once - Pushka and Kazantools, but this is only part of the iceberg, because 3D programs are being improved every day and I am learning continuously.
All this is my favorite work, to which I treat with trepidation and special love. For ten years I have learned a lot, even the basics of photography and fashion style at the Self Made school. I study all the time, and now, when I myself can sew a dress and make hand loops in the best traditions of famous fashion houses, and build a business, I have deeply studied trend analytics, fashion history, every day I read a huge array of literature and research in the field of fashion, I am completely I can tell you with confidence - I am a designer, I can do it, I am self-taught, but I know so much that I already advise those who decided to create their own brand. I give lectures on conscious consumption, how to find my own style and how to start my own business, I attend fashion weeks and write my analytics about it on the blog on the website and on Instagram @kolesman3d.I really love my job and for me it's not just things - it's visual reality and self-expression.
