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.
