Portrait of a Fashion Designer
By Jonathan Grassi
Known for her “Beautiful Garbage” concept of designing, Katya Leonovich developed her cutting edge aesthetic and techniques in couture design while in Paris, Rome, and her hometown of Moscow. One of our favorite photographers Jonathan Grassi photographed Katya (& her lovely pet rat) at her New York City studio before her Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection at New York Fashion Week.
Katya Leonovich was born in Moscow. She has designed couture in Paris, Rome, and New York City.
