Veronika Akhmatova: I am a determined person, when I have a target nobody can distract me.
2. Fashion Magazine 24: Your definition of “fashion” is…?
Veronika Akhmatova: I was born in Saint Petersburg, a beautiful city where art lives everywhere. So, for me, fashion is art. I’m like a painter, men and women are the canvases on which I paint my ideas, what I feel. When you look my illustrations, you see my feelings, my soul.
3. Fashion Magazine 24: Most fashionable city for you, favourite style/brand and your “MUST” item are ..?
Veronika: I love Milan and Paris, I think they are capitals of fashion. I travel much in these cities for work and when I am there, I can feel fashion in every corner. If you want to understand the trends that fashion will follow, you must go in these two cities.
I love brands like Givenchy, Valentino, Moschino, Alberta Ferretti. I love their style, their idea of fashion.
4. Fashion Magazine 24. Your wish for the future of the fashion world?
Veronika: Continue to innovate, to produce something new that can amaze people.
