Who am I?
Hello! I am Liliya. I was born in Ukraine, but I have been living in the UK since 2018.

Becoming a fashion model
I have a master’s degree in Economic Relations obtained in Ukraine. But, in my new life in Sheffield (UK) I decided to change my field of work. I became a fashion model. I have always had a passion for fashion, style and trends, especially upcycling clothes to create new looks. So after 18 years of working in a commercial role in an international manufacturing company, I changed my career to become involved in fashion.
