Poncho/Cape with Hood by Maya Strelnikova
Individually hand knitted fashion items, such as tops, sweaters, cardigans, shawls, ponchos and accent collars made from various types of yarn.
Each and every piece I knit contains a fragment of myself. Every piece I create is made in an effort to unearth myself. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have. I do not limit myself to one style, yarn or fashion trend. Each piece I create is a fusion of my past, where I come from and the future, where I am going in pursuit of new creative ideas.
Maya’s designs are generally inspired by European and urban cultural traditions. Her love of knitting leads her to continue to seek out new approaches, techniques and designs.
Having Diplomas in Management and Marketing from Seneca College, in addition to a Bachelor Degree in Arts and Science helped her build a successful career in Canadian fashion retail.
Customer satisfaction and appreciation is the ultimate reward for Maya’s hard work and the main driver for her inspiration.
