Fashion designer, New York

Snezhana Paderina, Fashion and Wearable Technology designer based in New York

I am an innovative fashion designer working to elevate the repertoire of modern fashion by implementing modern technology with traditional techniques.

My background in Information Technology has moved my vision of style towards a tenuous combination of Avant-garde and Ready to Wear fashion.

Elements of architecture, technology, cyberpunk, literature and art can be found interspersed in all my silhouettes and designs.
