The Exquisite Craftsmanship of Popovy Dolls
I have seen a lot of posts from Tumblr and I notice that none of the photos have credit of where the photos came from. It's kind of annoying because these dolls are getting a lot of popularity, but the creators aren't getting any credibility. These are Popovy dolls are created by two Russian sisters, and their figurines are beyond a masterpiece. I get a lot of inspiration in designing as well as sketching from these dolls. There is something so intricate and haute couture about the style. If I had money, I would support the arts and buy a few of these to display in my home.
I mean look at these figurines! I wish I could visit their studio and see how they are actually made.

Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
I do custom garments for any occasion. Please email me at Designsbykika@gmail.com for any requests or inquiries.
