Liza Ostanina is many things. She’s dabbles into photography, art direction, styling and film. For example, during the just concluded Paris Fashion Week, she along with her friend and collaborator, Shyne Ousmane premiered a film they directed to a room full of people. Liza’s grand plan is not be stuck in one medium of expression. The goal is to create whatever comes to mind. In our conversation that took place by the Siene river in Paris, we talk about her transition from a small city in Russia to Paris, her creative process and the significance of connecting with people IRL.
