In today's world of fashion there are so many talented individuals, but it is always interesting to see new faces and talents that are just starting out and have a mind full of ideas and that fresh sense of passion to learn and bring something different and new to the table. Svita is an amazing example of exactly that woman. She took her first fashion steps by working for Moda Operandi, Oscar de la Renta, Anton Belinsky and BOF ( The Business of Fashion). And that is not all ! Last year Svita launched an The Gypset Girl platform that works as an online store and a community for emerging fashion designers. Currently Svita is studying for her Masters degree at Parsons School of Design in Paris and is working on creating an online community to sell and represent graduate designers from top art universities. Svita is a type of a woman who thinks outside the box with an independent mind, she is a positive example of a modern feminist. We are always excited and proud to share with you features about women like Svita because, these women represent what Marble Hive stands for and encourages. Go ahead and follow Svita on Instagram (@miss_svita) where she shares her inspirations, fashion week's BTS, moods and personal style images. Her style can be a whole other subject, which is why naturally she is also a stylist :) If you are a fan of black, edgy, sexy and modern class, you will definitely get inspired.
