HOW IT ALL BEGAN?

I moved to New York City in 2005 from Tatarstan. I studied and worked in engineering, science, education and medicine.   When you live in the megapolis like New York you are always on the go. At any moment, you have to be ready for business meetings, happy hours, to go out with your friends, go on a date, work out during your lunch time and take off for a weekend on Fridays.

To suit this lifestyle, I was looking for minimalist ready to wear that is comfortable, practical, timeless and chic. After searching and not finding what I was looking for, I design my first dress and coat from neoprene scuba fabric. Everywhere I went people noticed and complemented the outfit, they asked where I got them from. Seeing others feedback and requests, I decided to share my work with wider audience and put the collection of dresses and coats. This is how the off label started.

The off label is based in New York City. The design work is by me.
