Interview with Daria Zhiliaeva at Monday 14th of April 2014

FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
DZ: I have studied painting,sculpture and fashion design at Academy of Art and Design (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) for three years, then I moved to Istitute Atelier Chardon Savard in Paris, where I stayed for one year. Last summer I got my bachelor degree in Polimoda, Firenze. The Hostess of the copper mountain is my graduate collection

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
DZ: I am studying at Polimoda now and hope to obtain my Master degree next spring. Also there is a small project called «February First».It is the online shop (feb1st.com) where I plan to sell simple and beautiful garments created by me and my sister

FS: What is "design" for you?
DZ: Another way to make people happy

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
DZ: Everything is interesting for me

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
DZ: Colours are very important for me. That is because of my studying in the Academy of Art maybe.

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
DZ: I never use elements of religious clothing in my designs. Also I try not to invest any kind of darkness and depression in things that I create. It is my understanding of respect and responsibility. I do not want to hurt or offend someone.

FS: When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
DZ: Shopping center "GALERIA" in SaintPetersburg, Russia gave me an amazing possibility to exhibit my collection in October 2013. Also I had a chance to present «The Hostess of the Copper Mountain» in Munich during Next Motion 2014 Fashion Show organized by AMD Akademie Mode und Design

FS: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
DZ: Now I live in Italy because of my studying and I'm really in love with this country. However Russia is my beloved homeland and my main source of inspiration

FS: How can people contact you?
DZ: My website is www.feb1st.com Also you can find me on notjustalabel.com or write me directly (daria.zhilyaeva@gmail.com )
