My name is Dina Yakushina. I am madly passionate for my job, for the events and weddings, which I have been creating all around the world for over 9 years, and for window displays.
It all began quite strangely, when I joined the team of an interior designer to decorate a wedding – just for fun. But I enjoyed it so much, and the client was so happy with the result, that straight away she recommended me to other brides. After working on three more weddings, I decided to take classes in floristry. After that, one of the best wedding agencies invited me to design weddings for their clients in Russia, Montenegro and Italy, so – I started to grow and build my portfolio.
I quit my marketing job and began doing weddings professionally. Ever since, I have organised weddings for clients at Como lake, Maggiore lake, in different parts of Tuscany, Monaco, Provence, Nice, the Alps, Tirol, Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante, Porto, Andros island, Melbourne, Sydney – and more.
Recently, I was unexpectedly asked to design window displays for a premium food retail Azbuka vkusa. To my own surprise, I became absolutely fascinated with this line of work, which helped me broaden my horizons greatly. And for no surprise I have been hired to work at their design studio.
So, for now, my two biggest passions have come together, and now my knowledge, expertise and experience from weddings let me create really cool concepts for windows. At the same time, working on window displays and other unconventional tasks in Azbuka Vkusa is widening my horizons and opening up my mind to a new way of thinking.
