Khristina Stolyarova's creative path was launched in her adolescence by her access to the wholesale market of Yakutia diamonds. Acquiring necessary technical skills in Moscow and developing her designer's voice at Central Saint Martins in London, graduating in 2021, she aims to contribute to the artistic side of contemporary fashion, subverting classical themes and reworking obsolete narratives into emancipatory statements.
Her collections examine the potential of cultural heritage to create the context for post-industrial reality. Approaching traditional cultural codes from the perspective of contemporary trends in fashion and popular culture, Khristina pushes the boundaries of relevance, creating stark pieces rooted in excitement and opulence.
Choosing Western Christianity as a rich and stimulating tradition for artistic and spiritual search, Khristina developed a collection of head-pieces accompanied with fine jewellery, combining theatrical vigour with sensual exploration.
