It is not uncommon for teenage year old hailing from Russia to find employment in the fashion industry, but Kira Plastinina, the underage Russian designer, is most definitely one-of-a-kind. At fifteen Kira has already conquered the international retail scene with over 40 retail stores operating throughout Russia. She has hosted runway shows complete with celebrities in attendance (even if they were paid millions to show up), and now she has her eyes set on the states. With financial backing from her mogul father, she has an aggressive business plan for establishing herself here in the U.S. in the next few years. By the time she turns eighteen the plan is to have fifty U.S. stores! The first U.S. store is set to open May 2nd right here in the Big Apple in Soho @ 594 Broadway. The store will of course stock her inexpensive, trendy, shiny, and frequently tacky spring looks alongside a fully stocked Dylan’s Candy Bar. What more could a fifteen year old ask for?
