THE VILSHENKO WOMAN loves fashion and she needs her wardrobe to suit every occasion of her busy life. Style comes naturally to her. I think that she has the same traits no matter which city (she is from), whether it is London or Moscow. She is strong and successful, yet feminine and sophisticated. She is a multi-tasker and she knows what she wants.
THE 3 MUST-HAVES FOR ME? I have a firm conviction that there is no woman who can do without a pair of classic black trousers and a white or cream blouse. For special occasions, there should be a perfect floor-length dress.
I LOVE THE MIDI BLACK DRESS with lace and chiffon sleeves. It is very flattering, and it’s a day-to-night piece. For this dress, we used three different fabrics – crepe, chiffon and lace under it so it feels very soft and sexy.
MY FAVOURITE FASHION DECADE is definitely the 70's – I would love to live in that fabulous and very feminine time!
MY ROLE MODEL is Raisa Gorbacheva, the first lady and wife of the first Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev. She was a very intelligent, kind and divinely beautiful woman with a great sense of style. She had to deal with a lot of troubles in her life, but she stayed strong and courageous. She is a great support to her husband.
ADVICE TO MY 18-YEAR OLD SELF? Keep your head up and don’t let people or circumstances misguide you. It is very important to let your heart lead the way.
