Vassa was born in Moscow, Russia and received a design degree from the Art School at VCU in the USA. After her graduation she worked in New York as a designer in the garment district. In 2000, she launched her RTW line. Shortly thereafter, Vassa and three partners forged the company Vassa & Co. The company has shown collections at London Fashion Week and Russian Fashion Week where the brand received high media reviews. In 2010, Vassa & Co celebrated the opening of the 30th exclusive brand shop 'VASSA & Co' and was awarded the honorable international prize "FASHION OLYMP" by the FASHION TV. In the Fall of 2013, Vassa & Co launched its first collection in the American fashion market at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City.
An adept of the minimalist school and heir to Russian Constructivism, Vassa blends both trends and always searches for the purest of elemental ideas at the root of every image and silhouette she creates. The Vassa & Co Collections are avant-garde, yet commercially successful.
Vassa draws on polarities as her trademark: asceticism and sexuality, hedonism and spirituality, geometry and entropy, contrast of texture and form, black and white. Vassa & Co's success can be attributed to a consistent brand building strategy enhanced by the emphasis on the unique silhouette and uncompromisingly high quality both in cutting and fabric selection.
