“It is better to love than to consume energy fighting, love is the most important feeling that we have!”
Your specific ‘Make Love’ collection is sexy, unique, and see through. I am in love with the different textiles and fabrics used to create your pieces. What inspired these designs?
My new collection Make Love has the purpose of attracting the attention of the public to peaceful existence on the planet. It is better to love than to consume energy fighting, love is the most important feeling that we have! We need to love God, the family, women and men, and children. I would really like people to be more in the state of love and gratitude every moment of their life. I am sure our world will be much better. This is what inspired me to create a pretty provocative Sensual collection, I used not standard camouflage prints and colors for sexy evening dresses and bikinis, and interesting materials like transparent and mesh fabrics together with aggressive metallic ornaments, chokers and wide belts.
You truly are at the start of your fashion empire. Please correct me if I am wrong. But the Cioccolato Collection includes everything from dresses, swimsuits, accessories, and shoes! How did you even begin it all? Any specific challenges that you have endured that have made you better? To the world, you’re almost an overnight success.
I own and have launched 4 new lines: Cioccolato Gowns, Cioccolato Collection, Cioccolato accessories. Cioccolato Shoes
Cioccolato Gowns is the collection of luxury gowns. The use of expensive laces, sparkles and exclusive fabrics from Italy and France are used for it. The dresses are to be worn on the red carpet and special occasions. The production of the dresses if in Miami and Los Angeles, hand made work. This line is designed for a modern independent woman who strives to be a bright, sexy and elegant at the same time. Exquisite luxury of the East and the chic of paradisaical canton – Miami inspired me for the creation of that collection.
“I am sure if you clearly know what you want, the universe will help you attract the right people and events…”
All the elements for the collection are made at the best factories in Italy and Turkey, and only the most modern Italian materials of high quality are used. Each image is carefully designed and created in order to emphasize the individuality, luxury, femininity and sexuality. All the dresses are exclusive and are created in a single copy, in which it is impossible to go unnoticed at any gala event.

“In our life, we are the authors and creators of our life, the main thing is to believe in what you are doing and to do all your best.”
Before any collection even existed, what steps did you take in order to prepare to begin the process?
Generally I have been in the fashion business for 8 years, but since childhood I sewed clothes for myself, and everyone was always amazed at my style and interesting approach, because I was not from a rich family but I wanted to look stylish according to the latest trends in the world! And it became my inspiration to create my own label and create a world empire.
I was going around different countries for a few years and was engaged in monitoring the best factories in the world to create a unique high-quality product thus at a competitive price. My philosophy is that everything is possible вспашет(что за слово не разобрала я может в нашей?). In our life, we are the authors and creators of our life, the main thing is to believe in what you are doing and to do all your best. Also, I have an international MBA degree that I finished in Shanghai! Of course you must have leadership skills, an ability to build relationships with people, and work a lot.
They say in order to have the things you want in life, one must sacrifice. What has been your hardest sacrifice since embarking on your dream?
I am sure if you clearly know what you want, the universe will help you attract the right people and events, as it has always happened in my life. Once again, I repeat I did not have rich parents or sponsors, I started my first business at 17 and I have always been independent and very ambitious.
You are walking down the street and you meet a mini you with the same aspirations and goals as you, what advice would you give her to make sure her goals are met?
My advice to all young girls and boys is to be courageous and follow their dreams because life is fleeting and none should waste a single moment, it is very important to love what you’re doing and follow your dreams! it is also important to surround yourself with the right people who will believe in you and support! but first of all you should love and believe in yourself, these are the key words in our lives! and I wish all the girls not to be afraid of being self-sufficient, because financial independence is very important as only then you can build up unconditional love with your family!
Anything else you would like to add…
Let’s Make Love in our World …..
