Stasha Yatchuk

It isn’t the first season for a 16-year-old model from Belarus . Stasha began her career with exclusive at one of the most prestige shows PRADA (autumn/winter 2014/2015, Milan).

Stasha was born in a small town Malorita in Brest region. As Stasha told herself, she started seriously  considering the career of model at the age of 14. She was discovered via social networks and eventually she was offered a job in Sergey Nagorny’s agency. This way it all started.

“For me, of course, Fashion Week is a mad time: there is no opportunity to sleep, to eat, there are always castings, fittings and shows, and you haven’t got any free minute”, – told Stasha to the press. This season there are   such brands as BCBG and Hervé Léger by Max Azria – clothes made by the Frenchman of Tunisian origin, that made all the American girls go crazy, and also a demonstration for tsuch world brands as Carolina Herrera and Ralph Lauren, in the list of her demonstrations in New York .

In Milan Stasha was showing Philipp Plein, Costume National, Iceberg, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Elisabetta Franchi, and in Paris – Barbara Bui and Akris. It’s noteworthy, that she’s made an editorial for VOGUE RUSSIA (March, 2015) right after the season.


Sabina Lobova


Sabina came to the agency at the age of 14 together with her sister Elina, who was 12 years old at that moment.

At the New York Fashion Week (spring/summer 2015) Sabina has recently taken exclusive and opened the Victoria Beckham show. One of the important factors in model’s career is the support of her parents.

Sabina is lucky: her family relates to her passion positively. After the season Sabina told, that her family arrived to support her in Paris, and also they were present at the Moncler Gamme Rouge demonstration, which Sabina was closing .

In this season the number of her shows goes off-scale: in New York Sabina wason the runwaysin the clothes by Marc by Marc Jacobs, Diesel Black Gold, Vera Wang, and Porsche Design. In Milan she demonstrated the collections by Gucci, Costume National, Jil Sander, Etro, and in Paris she presenting collections by Nina Ricci, Kenzo, Emanuel Ungaro and John Galliano and that’s not a complete list.

As a result of Fashion Week Sabina got into the TOP 10 NEWCOMERS S/S 2015 list of one of the most influential websites In addition, there’s been a great majority of magazine photoshoots published , and some of them are still to come out. One of her last work was a shoot for VOGUE Spain (April, 2015).

Beyond the runway Sabina looks simple but stylish. Her irreproachable street style causes mad delight of her fans in social networks.
There is a well-known photo with Sabina and the creative director of Armani fashion house, on which the Belarusian model embraces the couturier in the similitude of a guardsman.
