Fashion Designer Mila Gokhman from Kiev the Capital of UKraine

I met Mila  Gokhman at an Art Gallery where we both had our work on display ,

after much to do about  nothing which you seem to do in art Galleries plus her English is not so good ,
I realized she still had a collection of her fashion designs in leather ,clothes and jewelry spanning  about 40 plus years , and was interested in creating a book of her life in fashion design ,
well before I agreed I went to her home and viewed some of her work totally amazing ,as she is now lets say over 70 , well a lady never  tells  ,and a gentleman never ask ,

 so I agreed to work with her on this  PRO BONO until things change as she is not well  , but first I wanted some pictures of her ,so she came into my studio I just put some lights on ,and let her tell me her story  plus wear some of her deigns ,

so as we where talking I just photographed her ,no posing just as she was ,I think she may have model some years back as well ,but will know more as I work with her ,







this will be on going and will post her deigns as I get them cataloged and photographed 



these jewelry designs are made in black leather, so I wanted a black model ,plus I wanted the image to be black and white . booked model Mari Agory

  2. I found her in a thrift store in 2008!!! It took me 2 years but she finally got the show she deserved at Grand Central Art Center. I'm so happy to see her gain the respect she deserves. She's in her 80s, I would love to gain a copy of the book when you are done. ~Elle Seven.

  3. I found her in a thrift store in 2008. That red hat in particular. As soon as I heard her story, I took it upon myself to find her an exhibition. It took 2 years but I finally got her a show at Grand Central Art Center. It's so good to see her respected for the historic artists that she is. Tearing up. Thank you Thank you Thank you! And next time you see her give her my love.
