Before her eagerly anticipated debut at London Fashion Week Milya Sharapova of Milusha London sits down with Baroque Access.
Q: What were your inspirations when designing this collection?
Milya: As with most designers, I draw inspiration from all aspects of my everyday life. My boyfriend and I love to go to art galleries and get inspiration from the colors and textures of the paintings I see. In our gallery outings, we always go with a plan to cover a particular period, for example, a couple of weeks ago, we went to an exhibition of 12th-13th century art, which gave me so many ideas.
Also inspiration comes from international travel, femininity, elegance and fashion icons.
Q: What is it about London Fashion Week that you love?
Milya: This is the first London Fashion Week Milusha London is participating in. The reason why we are doing it is because we want to show what we have done and what have achieved during this time. Fashion week is the most exciting period for all people who are in a fashion industry. It’s always great to see everyone’s collections and admire the tremendous work they have done.
Q: What is the design aesthetic at Milusha London?
