Anastasia individualised her aesthetic during her time at Central Saint Martin’s, London where she completed her bachelors of arts. Sparking a desire to pursue a career in the industry, she undertook an internship at Christian Dior Haute Couture design studio in Paris working closely with Raf Simmons. It was here, she developed the necessary knowledge to build the foundations for her own exclusive company. With a curious eye for original patterns Anastasia’s style aims at maintaining an emphasis on individuality for each of her clients.
The two key principles she follows are to use sustainable materials within her designs and the second is to raise awareness of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) otherwise known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).
The philosophy and spirit of the brand is to cover all sides of life: Joyful, elegant, fun, promiscuous, majestic, business to casual.
Raise awareness of CFS/M.E.
Born in St Petersburg, grew up in Canterbury and has recently suffered with CFS, which has certainly been a challenge within the fashion industry, out of running Maison Magenta out of perseverance to stay in work during my CFS/M.E. recovery, she founded her brand to be able to workto her bodyclock. For this reason Anastasia is interested in sharing her journey to give hope and show others they too can succeed.
