Born and raised in St.Petersburg—the city of White Nights, Galina Carroll's early life was influenced by the historic art and architecture that surrounded her. Today, everything in her work and life continues to resonate the influence of Russian tradition and culture.
Having studied at the Academy of Art and Industrial Design of V.Muchina, Galina graduated with a degree in Industrial Design. With that solid background she decided to make a career change. She delved into her true passion, the world of fashion. Her first knitwear collection created with a friend was displayed in Hamburg and Paris.
After a trip to New York in 1991 Galina’s life changed dramatically when she met and married the love of her life. Leaving her life in Russia and inspired by the freedom and excitement of America, she developed and exhibited her first collection in the CASE Museum in Jersey City, NJ.
