About me

Hello!

My name is Uliana. In 2010, I left my home, family and friends and came to the US to pursue my dream of becoming a fashion designer. It all started in my childhood, when I spent hours at my mom’s work. She was a seamstress at a knitwear factory, and in her spare time, she made clothes for herself and our family.

Fast forward to October of 2012, I completed a BFA in Fashion Design and Merchandising. Over the years I worked on my own and collaborated with other designers to create ready-to-wear collections, avant-garde looks, evening wear, haute couture inspired ensembles and garments from unconventional materials.

If you have that perfect dress in mind, I can make it happen.
