S1 EP02 Yana Galbshtein is fashionably masked: behind-the-scene fashion superstar and her creations of effective COVID gear
In this episode, I talk with a long-time good friend of mine, Yana Galbshtein, about what it was like to be a New Yorker during the time of COVID-19 quarantine, and how she is using her amazing skills as an artist to keep people safe and healthy with her fashionable filtration masks.
Yana graduated Fashion School at the top of her class in San Francisco, and won a coveted internship granted by Wilkes Bashford to go to Italy to work at Kiton. She currently lives and works in NYC as a tailor for Bushwood tailors, and has done print work with Out Magazine, and tailored tons of celebrities like Ariana Grande for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, HER for the VMAS, and Gabrielle Union for the MET Gala.
