**I AM CURRENTLY RESIDING IN THE UAE - DUBAI WHERE I WILL BE BASED FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE**
I MAKE HEADWEAR ART AND ACCESSORIES
Miss Veronika Valentine is a long established and highly regarded performer in the arts & entertainment world.
She is an international award winning performance artist with an enviable repertoire, to die for self costuming and exquisite clients, including Dubai Royalty, international music mega-stars and some of the biggest festivals in the world.
Veronika began designing in 2007 when her career began to take off, designing and creating some of her own head pieces.
Veronika became widely known, not only for her career in performance and modelling but also for her unique and inspiring costumes, styling and design work.
The attention her designs received meant she soon found herself being hired by other performers and models to create bespoke pieces for them.
Much of her time was spent performing and designing in this style for a few years but whenever time permitted you could guarantee Veronika was in her studio designing and creating some totally unique pieces.
In late 2012 an established designer and friend visited Veronika at her studio only to open a door to a totally unexpected world of design - one which she insisted the high fashion world must see. And so VVDESIGN was born.
Throughout 2013 Veronika has been working non-stop. Her design work has rocketed into the popularity stakes and she is hugely in demand of numerous Photographers, Magazines and Fashionistas.
Veronikas designs have already appeared in Editorials and Magazines all over the world, Including: U.S.A, Paris France, China, Russia, Azerbaijan and the UK
In 2014 Veronika will be releasing new collections, working with various magazines, designers and companies AND designing a unique piece for WILL.I.AM
Veronika lives in London with her cat ,Oscar.
She grew up in a creative home in West London, with a greek and latin professor for a father and professional teacher and dancer for a mother; where her passion for performance began and who taught Veronika to sew and make her own costumes.
Miss Valentine Studied theatre, stage and costume design at college, fuelling her creativity and basing her with some solid skills behind her ideas.
She has many obsessions in life, her cat, music, designing, creating, writing, painting, performing, books, comics, food, teas, fire, collecting, loving, evolving.. and is a self-proclaimed 'clutter-lover-junk-junkie.'
With some arguably "peculiar" design work, Veronika offers us a very intriguing mind (we crave to explore) which pours lavishly over her creative exquisite design work.
She has collected for many years, dolls (and random parts of), bones, skulls, human hair, toys and numerous other items which she uses in some of her pieces of art. It is said that her studio looks like a bohemian Aladdin's treasure cave.
**I'm a thrift store addict, classy-rummager, and magpie-eyed treasure hunter with a passion for making the discarded and unwanted into the usable, beautiful and desirable again. A clutter-lover-junk-junkie, glamourous controversial punk. A Glorified Recycle'er?! ...I tend to see beauty in unusual places, where others may see the grotesque and I transform it into something I find intriguing. I find nature its process and all its remnants a huge inspiration. I think fashion should be foolish, fabulous, provoking, bizarre, classy, indulgent, worrying, desirable, unique....all those traits that we ourselves are** (Quote: Veronika Valentine)
Veronika mainly designs headwear, accessories and art pieces
Her work has been published internationally including:
U.S.A *** Russia *** Paris France *** China *** Azerbaijan
"There are no rules for me in fashion, just as there are none in life, we carve our own paths and create our own image with the best of what we each have, we often bypass beauty in ourselves, others, our surroundings, we become immune and take for granted the things daily life show our senses, everything is beautiful if you really SEE- I create with that attitude..what I feel, with what I find, with what I can salvage; making each piece totally unique and with such individual energy and perspective*

I will consider TFP collaborations/publications/editorials/ if the project is high end or benefits my portfolio...
I am looking for models, MUA's, hair stylists, photographers, clothing designers, artists, editors, publishers etc... to work with on a TF basis over the next 2 months.
Peace & Cake
