Behind The Scenes- of " IVANKA- If We Ever Meet Again" the short film

Ramona Mcgowan in the lead role of IVANKA.

We love movies and have always been very inspired by them. Movies are instant mental travels...they can take you anywhere in the universe in matters of minutes only. As artists who truly enjoy and appreciate all kinds of arts, we've always dreamt of one day making our own movie. Finally, after years of contemplating the idea, our dream came to reality! We recently made our first movie with the tremendous help of talented actor/director Matias Desiderio.

For our recent NYFW Fall 2012 collection, we decided to merge fashion with cinema, inspiring our entire collection off our muse off our imagination, the fictive character of IVANKA. She is a Russian secret agent....very dangerous and mysterious. To immerse our audience into the character, context and story, we produced the short film    " IVANKA- If We Ever Meet Again". It was such a big challenge as we a few days to write, cast, shoot and edit the whole projet...but we made it!!!  We have to say, it would have never made possible without the help of our precious crew!
