Ulyana Sergeenko – Russian lady

Fashion designer Ulyana Sergeyenko is called Queen of Russian Couture. She began her career in the fashion industry in 2011 and three years later her clothes appeared on the fashion podiums of the world’s fashion capitals – Paris, London and Milan. Secular lionesses from Russia and the stars of Hollywood like her feminine dresses with a floral print.
Pretty girl was born in 1982 in Ust-Kamenogorsk into the family of philologists.
A style icon for the future star was not Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, but her own grandmother whose image Ulyana always uses in her collections.
At the age of 15 Sergeenko along with her parents moved to St. Petersburg. A year later she became a model. Ulyana was invited to the well-known modeling agency Modus Vivendis.
However, the girl dreamed of being a model in Paris and New York. The dream wasn’t fulfilled. Her intelligent parents were totally against: their daughter had to get a good education.
Ulyana graduated from the St. Petersburg State University.
Before becoming a designer, the girl was a photographer and took pictures of Alena Akhmadullina, Ksenia Sobchak and Polina Kitsenko.

Ulyana did not become a model, but she realized herself as a designer. Having married a successful Russian businessman, the woman turned into a secular lioness. She appeared at the parties in clothes that she sewed or invented herself. Soon elegant Ulyana was called an icon of style.
Famous model Natalia Vodyanova advised her to show the author’s collection at the Fashion Week in Paris. So the model pushed Ulyana to action and helped organize the debut show.
So in 2011 the brand Ulyana Sergeenko appeared. The first fashion show of the brand took place in the gallery ArtPlay. It was a success. And after the show as part of Fashion Week in Paris, she became a real Russian sensation. She became known for her “a la Russ” style.
Fashion bloggers call her a Slavic Princess, fashion professionals discuss her collections. Patrick Demarchelier, Anna dello Russo, Carine Roitfeld, Suzy Menkes visit her fashion shows.
Ksenia Sobchak, Nika Belotserkovskaya, Miroslava Duma, Svetlana Bondarchuk like Ulyana’s clothes. Bright stars Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora also wear her dresses. The Queen of burlesque Dita von Teese called Ulyana “the greatest icon of style”, and Ornella Muti is a close friend of a talented Russian woman.

Personal life
There is no information about Ulyana’s first husband. It is known that Sergeenko gave birth to his son.
In 2008 Ulyana married a successful businessman, head of the company Rosgosstrakh, Daniil Khachaturov. And in the spring of 2006, Ulyana gave birth to their daughter Vasilisa. The couple divorced in 2015. According to rumors, the billionaire was fascinated by the film director Anna Melikyan.
