The Karina Kinobrand was created in 2014 by Muscovite designer and artist-illustrator Karina Kinosyan. For her it is essential to work in Russia and for Russia (her small collections are sewn in Kirov and Kazan) and use natural fabrics, ecologically certified dyes and new technologies.
She likes to create limited edition, yet accessible items. Her collections often sell out quickly at Moscow pop up retail sales, but Kinosyan is not thinking of expanding her company and is not striving for mass commercial success.
Having an internet store is enough for her and opening a showroom is not in her plans, since that would mean increasing the cost of her items by 100 percent. The designer pursues at least two other interests: Kinosyan is also a beginner student of icon painting and a sister of mercy by the name of Angelina. It will be interesting to see how this mix will reflect on Kinosyan’s creativity in the future.
