About the Company
Kristina Fidelskaya is a contemporary luxury fashion brand spearheaded by, designer Kristina Fidelskaya. With its headquarters in Dubai and production in Italy, Launched in early 2014, the brand currently features a range of luxurious designer pieces with plans of expanding to a full collection of ready-to-wear, jewelry and accessories.

The Kristina Fidelskaya brand is a woman’s best friend. It is a brand that she can turn to for glamour and confidence, to be the woman she is and always will be. Kristina’s love for fashion stemmed at a young age, watching her mother create unique pieces at a time in history where the concept of individuality and expression was against the norm. She later studied at Dubai’s Esmod Fashion Institute and, like her mother, discovered that fashion, as an art form became her creative outlet.

Mixing vintage styles with her current cultural fascinations, Kristina effortlessly creates elegant and timeless clothes that speak to every woman. As an entrepreneur, a mother and a trendsetter, her collections symbolize the power and independence of the modern woman while maintaining the traditionally refined femininity and class.

Following her own inspiration, Kristina Fidelskaya hopes to inspire other women. This is just the beginning.
