“This has been a very satisfying collection to create, as well as a bit nostalgic. I cherish the memories growing up in an environment of poetic melancholy, deep and profound friendships and connections between people, cold winters and hot summers; being completely mesmerized by the regal art of the memory of the Royal Family and overall artistic inclinations of the Russian people. This collection is a testament to going back to my roots. And I am delighted to inspire curvy fashionistas to experience the memories of my childhood and early youth.” said Yuliya Raquel.
