DESIGN GENIUS: LONDON
“What makes me stand out is that I don’t really follow trends, I just create intuitively from what I see, what I can feel, what I have, usually.”
Viktoria Gokun is a Russian-born, U.S.-raised visual artist and garment designer who comes from a long line of seamstresses and designers from both her mother and father’s side. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, she began working with a master designer where she learned about modern vintage couture and learned the business aspect of independent design. Viktoria decided to place her creative abilities to use by going on her own way and making her own collection, VESNA. In this collection, she carefully sources her own materials and hand paints each textile to create one-of-a-kind garments.
