Yana experienced her own self-love awakening when she discovered the art of dance. Struggling with bullying at school and personal insecurities during much of her teen years, Yana turned to dance to nurture her own self-esteem journey. Her background in classical ballet and ballroom dancing allowed her to connect to her own body and discover what it takes to create a perfect streamline silhouette. This snowballed into a natural curiosity and obsession with body language and movement, which lead her to dabble in the fashion industry as a clothing designer and runway teacher to models.
She embarked on her professional journey in 1995 when she began working with high fashion models. She trained models in Italy to utilize body balance, movement, and poise. She then held a successful career as a fashion designer which came with many achievements including being a part of the Macy’s on State Street incubator program, and working at several notable fashion houses in Europe.
