The cultural philanthropist features avant garde artists and cutting edge style in her newest venture, GARAGE Magazine.

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).
