Thinness was always one of my distinct features. It was quite problematic to find small size clothes, so I decided to produce clothes specifically for petite women. I organised a small scale production and I sold my clothes via the internet and in a well established fashion show room in Moscow. The first garment which I produced was a frock with a transformer tie-collar that could take 32 different shapes.

The most popular dress from my collection had a collar with wings 10 cm wide. This dress was bought not only by petite women but also was ordered by women of other sizes. The first thing the customers said was: “What a beautiful collar”. This collar looks high even when it is rolled down. And the lines of the neckline emphasises shapes of the wings. I named this dress the Duchess. And this collar makes the appearance more expressive indeed.
Dresses below have asymmetrical collars. This is a flat collar which starts with 1 cm and finishes with 10 cm wide. Cuffs repeat the shape of the collar. Customers who bought these dresses liked the collar.
The next dress was made of the reverse side of fabric but the collar and turned up side of sleeves were made of the right side. I attached an unusual collar to this item. This collar has 2 parts, both of them start with less than 1 cm wide and finish with 5 cm as I recall. They start from opposite sides and, due to this determination, the collar looks asymmetrical. It was the first dress I sold.
