Although she may never know how much our mere chance meeting has inspired me, “Misha V” as I know her, is an up-and-coming fashion force to be reckoned with.
I first met Misha during her last semester as a Public Relations graduate student at the University of Miami (It was my second semester in the same program, and we just happened to be in the same class). What was most impressive to me was that Misha was probably the youngest person to ever graduate the program… she was only 21 years old then.
Since I too am a fashion and beauty junkie (thanks to my mom and business partner who is a longtime cosmetologist), this London native caught my attention right away.
What I first noticed about Misha was that she was always so well put together from head to toe. From her delicately placed and beautifully embellished hair clips, her perfectly manicured nails and flawless makeup, on down to the choice of her outfit for the day… Let’s just say if fashion is truly her calling in life, then she embodies every bit of it everywhere she goes… and she makes sure that her little Mac Book matches (yes, pretty in pink… Love it!).
On the day that I introduced myself to Misha, I noticed that she was working on a design program on her laptop just before class began. I decided to ask her about it, and sure enough, she explained her passion for fashion and her hopes to one day design a collection of her own. That was less than a year ago and Misha V has already begun her reign in fashion.
I was inspired to write this post because I recently stumbled upon her fan page on Facebook, only to be absolutely floored by the latest designs in her debut 2012 Tea Time Collection By Misha. Between now and then Misha has had some of her pieces featured in Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach, and recently did a fashion show hosted at the luxurious Mondrian on Miami Beach.
Misha is exactly one of the reasons why I started this section of my blog. She is driven. She is passionate. She sets goals, and achieves them one by one… and she always looks absolutely FABULOUS while doing it.
I’m super proud of Misha V and wish her success beyond words. Check out her website for more on what she’s all about, and what to expect from her in the future. LONG LIVE FASHION!
P.S.- I couldn’t resist posting some of my favorite pieces from this collection. ENJOY! 🙂
