Last month we got a glimpse of some MAJOR talent from the winners of our Miista Shoe Box Design Competition. They inspired us so much that we had to get into their heads with a little Meet Our Muse interview!
Q: What was your creation process?
A: In fact, everything happened very quickly. I decided, “I have to try it, I practically see the idea and I’m interested in the topic.” I watched the horror movie Viy at the momet, and I was so inspired that I immediately sat down to work.
Q: If you were a shoe, what would you look like?
A: The first thing that popped into my head – russian national sandals – «lapti» http://img1.liveinternet.ru/images/attach/c/0//52/436/52436738_1260815792_852108599.jpg. Well actually I can see myself than minimalist and utilitarian, like sneakers.
Q: If you were left on a deserted island, how would you get off?
A: Oh I really always wanted to get on a desert island. I would have probably enjoyed life and wrote a book and then read them myself
Q: What’s your favorite trend for Spring/ Summer?
A: I love minimal and sporty styles
Q: Favorite piece in your closet?
A: I love shoes, I have it very much. And I have a favorite dress with cats.
Q: What’s it like to live in Moscow? What’s your typical day like?
A: I really like to live in Moscow. It’s super dynamic city, everything is full of energy. My typical day filled with crazy – university where I am studying (Architectural academy) takes a lot of time, but I like it, for me architecture is so exciting.
Q: What’s the coolest thing you’ve found recently?
A: Yesterday I found this T-shirt and now only dream about it http://shop.themountain.me/furry-face-youth/
