our story.

Growing up in the Soviet Union, Zina loved sewing as a child. She started out with scraps and old clothes from her mother and sister and re-made the garments to fit her style and personality. She went on to pursue a degree in textile-work. Later, Zina married Valeriy and the two started a children's clothing line and a family of their own. In 1993 the family moved to the United States, and after she became a mother herself, Zina made clothing for her kids.

She now serves the Twin Cities with her 30+ years of experience, taking great care to see that each garment is stitched up with quality. For Zina it's no longer about fixing clothes, but about doing what she loves.
