takes her bow after her fall 2004winter 2005 catwalk show
during Los Angeles Fashion Week.
look that is fun and full of life, designer Galina says, is
the object of fashion line Single. Single, which showed at Los Angeles
Fashion Week recently, is the epitome of the modern, urban hipster
itching to go out for a night on the town. Through the use of soft
stretchy fabrics and daring cuts, Galina's line encompasses what
it means to be Single in 2004 Los Angeles.
Galinas story began in Russia and the Ukraine,
when she watched her grandmother create in her atelier at an early
age and found herself intrigued. From Russia, she took her interests
to New York,
where she attended FIT, and then on to Central St
Martins in London, where she studied design.

catering to them, Single brings San Tropez to the Los Angeles freeway
