Veronika Vimpelova is a Brussels based fashion designer and dressmaker born in Ostrava, a Czech city known for its coal and steel industry and the nearby Beskydy mountains full of deep green forests.
These roots can be traced through the effortless combination of ancestral tradition and contemporary innovation in her work.
Veronika was inspired to carve a path in the fashion industry by her grandmother, who ran her own bespoke studio in former Czechoslovakia. In light of her talent and aspirations, she studied for a degree in fashion design at ESDEMGA, at the University of Vigo in Spain.
Veronika was selected to showcase her graduate collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid in 2014.
This was followed by the opportunity to complete her professional training in London, at the womenswear department of McQ Alexander McQueen.
Working with McQ enhanced her skill for detail and gave her a unique education in the steps required to create a collection, leading to the launch of VIMPELOVA brand.
