Sasha Pivovarova is a secret gardener who smells like roses.
November 23, 2016

One of the true icons in the modelling industry, Sasha Pivovarova was an instant success when she made her catwalk debut in 2005. She opened her very first show – Prada AW05, shown in February – and that same year she was photographed for the cover of Italian Vogue by legendary photographer Steven Meisel. 

Some models work a lifetime to earn the prefix, Sasha Pivovarova was a supermodel from the start. And hopefully, modelling won’t be her only legacy. Sasha Pivovarova, who studied art history in Moscow before she was discovered, loves to spend time in her art studio.
