MashaLopatova Kirilenko, the owner of Fashion IQ, first found her place in the fashion industry as a young student attending Central Saint Martins College in London. Studying alongside geniuses like Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo, and Rifat Özbek, her education led her on a lifelong pursuit of fashion, not only as a means of artistic expression but in her career as well.
After being an entrepreneur in the fashion industry for nearly 20 years, Masha launched Fashion IQ in New York to share her love of fashion and it’s power to transform. In this work she has collaborated with stylists such as Natasha Goldenberg and Natalia Turovnikova; and photographers such as Peter Lindebergh, Adam Katz Sinding, & Nabile Quenum. In addition to her work with Fashion IQ, Masha has also served as a contributor for Vogue & Tatler (Conde Nast Russia).
Masha now divides her time living between New York, Los Angeles, St Tropez, & Moscow with her husband Andrei Kirilenko and their four children.
