About DASHA SHMASHA
Hi there! Welcome to my Patreon page!
I'm Dasha (DASHA SHMASHA).
I am a creator from a small country - Moldova. When I was 16 I moved to Saint - Petersburg, Russia to study Fashion Design. That were 4 wonderful years of exhibitions, fashion shows, and crazy friends. Despite this, at the end of the studying, I was sure - fashion world wasn't for me. But I was still in love with the fabric and the idea of dressing people.
So I’ve found my new passion - Costume Design. I just admire costume designers - those are artists whose media is fabric! That is a magnificent profession, I think! When the viewer sees the character for the first time he can guess what the character's nature is based on the costume. Costume helps an actor to become another person, to travel in time and even in worlds. This is magic and I want to learn how to do it!
Since the moment I had discovered this profession, I became crazy about it. I did my best and last year I passed the entrance exam to the one of the best Art Academies in the world - Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. (Jan Fabre, Dries Van Noten, Martin Margiela and Vincent van Gogh were students of this academy!). So THIS IS HUGE!
But I couldn’t start studying because of the financial issues. The administration of the Academy was so kind to let me start a year after (which means September 2018).
Let’s do it together!
With you being a part of this journey, I will start studying. And the best part for you -
i will be sharing every day inside the Royal Academy. I will do my best to provide you the most interesting content: excursions, artworks, cognitive lectures and interviews with students and professors.
