Olga Sorokina began her journey into the world of beauty and illusions with steps on the catwalk as a model.
- Now turning the pages of my life, I realized how important it is to flow from one form to another without losing your identity. I thank my lucky stars for invaluable experience and momentous meetings. I remember that moment when I felt cramped in one role. I learned about IRFE from the book “Beauty in Exile” by Alexander Vasilyev. This book is about Russian fashion House of the 20th century. When I was a child we have always been taught to read books and only this way you would learn about everything: books can change a persons. I never would have believed that this story will touch me after reading the book Beauty in Exile: my life has really changed. -Olga Sorokina
One of those life-changings meetings was Olga Sorokina’s meeting with Ksenia Sfiri - the granddaughter of the founders of the Fashion House IRFE. Their first encounter was in the family home of Yusupov in Paris and became a new turning point in the history of the legendary House.
Olga Sorokina’s debut show for the Maison IRFE was held at the Haute Couture Week in July 2008 in Paris at the Palais de Tokyo.
