Student by day, highly sought after fashion designer by night, Kira Plastinina has built an empire out of a dream all before the age 16 ( with a little help from Father, of course). With the dream of always wanting to be a fashion designer, her father, Sergei Plastinina, the multimillionaire juice-and-dairy king of Eastern Europe, took notice and like every good dad, gave his daughter just what she wanted: her own fashion label.
â€œMy dad asked me to show him the sketches of what I really liked and what I think is cool, and then I think he showed it to some professional people, but I donâ€™t know because I wasnâ€™t actually there. And then my dad said, â€˜Are you willing to do this?â€™ I was like, â€˜Are you serious?â€™â€‰â€ Kira wriggles up and down a bit in her chair, beating her thighs with her fists. Yes, he was serious, and, yes, she was willing. â€œI was really happy,â€ she says. â€œI have, like, the best parents a girl could wish for.â€
Definitely a sensation sweeping the nation, or maybe more like sweeping the world, Kira already has 40 stores across her native Russia, two in the Ukraine and 11 more openings in the U.S.A. and already has a gigantic following of girls and young women, alike.
