Good morning everybody and welcome to An Idiot’s Thoughts!!  Today we have an amazing guest.  Anastasia Kryukova.


At the age of 14, Anastasia Kryukova began her fashion career attending a local fashion design institute in her hometown Tula, Russia. By her second year of school, she accepted an offer to assist a local wedding dress designer. From there, she quickly knew that she had to further herself and continue her education.  Having been offered a scholarship to Moscow State University of Culture and Arts, she found herself lucky and accepted the opportunity. At this time of her life, she focused merely on Russian Folk Art and working towards achieving her Art Teaching credentials in early childhood education. “I don’t dream to be just a designer, but an artist.  I just wanted to be able to create my own art” – says Anastasia, as she realized she would make the decision to further herself after her schooling and later immigrate to the United States. With another adventure ahead of her, Anastasia embraced yet a new chapter in her life.

She wants to present herself through the cutting-edge and unique designs that would represent who she is as a designer.
