Join The Conversation...
I recently caught up with Tatiana Kolina, fashion designer and owner of the DC based brand, sPACYcLOUD. Her distinctive style and creativity caught my eye years ago while attending DC Fashion Week in Washington, D.C. After having a brief conversation with the designer, it left me no choice but to ask for a sit down interview to learn more about Tatiana “Tati” and her brand, sPACYcLOUD. Here’s what she had to say:
So, who is Tatiana Kolina?
I am someone who embraces the positive energy of individuals who do their own thing in hopes of inspiring the world around them to do the same. The common denominators in anything I do are made up of peace, love, justice, and creativity.
How would you describe the sPACYcLOUD Brand?
Who is that one celebrity that, if you could snap your fingers and make it come to reality, you would have model your line?
Most definitely Gwen Stefani to represent my women’s line and Tony Hawk for the men’s line.
Great choices. Who or What inspires you?
sPACYcLOUd is the manifestation of a revolutionary spirit always pushing to people to be liberated from social constraints through expressions of love, peace and creativity. I believe in the spirit of those that choose the journey in life that fits who they are and makes them happiest. So I’m inspired by having the opportunity to make a statement on many different levels and more so uniting us all in style.
Nice! What would you say has been a highlight from your career thus far?
There have been several! Having the sPACYcLOUd jackets a part of 2013 Vans Warped Tour/Concrete Wave/Longboarding for Peace, being published in Summer 2013 edition of Concrete Wave magazine and being selected to present sPACYcLOUd at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration Fashion show in Washington DC. These were all memorable and great accomplishments.
With having so many great accomplishments such as those, what do you want to achieve next with your brand?
Making sPACYcLOUD jackets available in stores around the world and assisting organizations (through my brand) with raising money to continue good deeds.
That’s awesome! I have no doubt in my mind that this will happen for you, Tatiana. How can people get in touch with you and learn more about you and the sPACYcLOUD brand?
It was a pleasure interviewing you Tatiana! Everyone look out for the sPACYcLOUD Brand. You will be seeing and hearing this name again.
