Katya Dobryakova is a high-end contemporary Russian fashion designer who blends everyday staples with intellectual originality.
She graduated from the Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts with a degree in graphic design. Her career kicked off with a Sony Music contract designing album covers for influential artists in the music industry.
Katya transitioned to designing interior spaces for some well-known restaurants in Moscow. Meanwhile, she also redesigned apparel through personal requests from friends, which led to her desire to launch her own brand in 2011.
Her design incorporates intellectual humor by catching subtle fluctuations in public opinion. Current events and political themes are reinterpreted into recognizable prints that are transferred from paper to cloth.
Her unique concept has been sought after on both a local and international level. She has collaborated with companies like L’Occitaine, Disney, Intel, Philips, Yota and others.
The collections are sold by the most famous Russian multi-brand shops and foreign department stores as well as in her own personally designed store in the heart of Moscow. This Fall, Katya will open her first flagship in the heart of NYC Soho.
