For the first time working with the kids, Viktorija has added an extra fashion flavor to the little models and possibly have discovered new young superstars! ‘It was so much fun working with the kids, – says Viktorija, – as they are so energetic and spontaneous, you can see true excitement in their eyes and that energy really feeds me as an artist! They all got into their characters so well – that was truly impressive’.

Viktorija ads that, “For these types of photo projects, where every little detail counts – we had to create certain clothing pieces from the scratch, like the iconic David Bowie’s British Flag coat, created by multi talented stylist and designer Oye Decova”. “Having on board such a talented glam team of professionals (Einat Dan, Bethy Mireles, Barbara Yniguez, Chelsea Conklin and Marla Moore) helped us to transform shy kids into iconic music figures”
