Even if you haven’t heard of Dasha Zhukova, if you work in a creative field chances are you’ve at some point crossed paths with one of her game-changing projects. In 2006, the Russian “socialite, celebutante, philanthropist, entrepreneur, fashion designer, and magazine editor” co-founded the fashion label Kova & T with her childhood friend Christina Tang. Since then she maintains an active role in the creative direction of the company, which has been part of a very successful and ongoing collaboration with Urban Outfitters. In 2008, Zhukova then founded the IRIS Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting contemporary culture, through which she and International Coordinator Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst launched The Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow, a prominent and much needed venue for modern and contemporary art. In February 2009, Zhukova was appointed Editor-in-Chief of Pop Magazine, before leaving that position in 2010 t0 become a member of the board of trustees of LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art).

In other words, Zhukova isn’t one to rest on her laurels. As the Editor of her newest print progeny GARAGE, the Russian business woman has helped usher in their newest issue with imagery influenced by the art of classic fairy tales & nursery rhymes. Inspired by Homosexual Wedding (1968), a happening staged by legendary artist Yayoi Kusama (who is also profiled within), the second issue of GARAGE will explore the contemporary state of sex and relationships.

Inside you’ll find fashions from such renowned designers as Prada, Missoni, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney, and also elements inspired by such featured contemporary artists as Adrian Varejão, Clare Rojas, Mat Collishaw and the aforementioned Yayoi Kusama.
