My name is Oksana Zaga. My passion for sewing started back in middle school. By the end of high school, I was sewing prom dresses for my classmates and myself. Later, I graduated University with a master degree in economics. I worked as an accountant for a long time, but sewing has always been a hobby that brought me joy.
In 2006, I came to United States and continued my passion of sewing and creating dresses. A few years ago, I decided to expand my knowledge of creating dresses by taking online couture classes in Europe.
Today, I am an expert in dressmaking and have developed my own techniques. I love what I do and every time I create a new dress, I do it with all my heart.
