Born and brought up in Russia during the Cold War, leading fashion designer Anna Kiper spent her childhood in a world untouched by Western fashion trends, one that was full of grey uniforms, emotional restraint and hostility towards creative expression and individuality.
It is extraordinary that, from a background such as this, Anna became inspired by art and fashion. Despite the hardships of emigration to the United States, she followed her dreams and went on to a career as one of New York City’s most highly respected fashion designers, who has worked for companies such as Calvin Klein and Mondi, and has dressed celebrities including Nicole Kidman and Halle Berry for red carpet events and magazine covers.
Anna has always had a great passion for illustration, and believes that the magic of an artist’s hand creates a unique relationship between the artist, the artwork and the viewer. Her utterly breathtaking illustrations in her book Fashion Illustration are beautiful artworks in their own right.
