Tetyana is a Ukrainian born Canadian, who moved to Canada 18 years ago. She learned the language, the culture, but kept her own alive as well. With a Master’s Degree and Engineering Diploma in Printing, she successfully built her career in the industry until she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, fibromyalgia and arthritis.
With physical disabilities, at the age of 44, she walked the runway of Vancouver Fashion Week as a plus size model, and featured at The Vogue UK magazine.
Tetyana believes that anything can be re-cycled, re-designed and re-loved. That is her ECO-formula for creating garments and fascinators.
She is a fashion designer who presented her collection at ECO Fashion Week Vancouver where she chose her models to be all sizes and ages. Her Ethnic Ukrainian-inspired garments landed the pages of The Vogue magazine as well.
Tetyana is the proud recipient of the 2015 Heart & Sole Award for supporting and inspiring women. And 2016 The Most Inspiring Person of The Year Award.
Tetyana is the reigning Mrs. British Columbia title holder and will compete for Mrs. Canada Title in March of 2017.
