Daria Jabenko

How do you stay fit in a challenging/demanding marketplace?

I try not to look at what’s happening in the marketplace. I focus on the inspiration, I nourish myself with beautiful books, music, travel and definitely going inward. There is a lot of noise in the marketplace, trends change, new products come out daily and I truly feel that this is the time when it’s vital to stay connected to our truth and authenticity. I also know that what we focus on – expands. So I focus not on challenges of the marketplace but on exciting opportunities that are available. Tuning to what I want and being open to receive – this way marketplace becomes magical to me.

What are your favorite foods?
I’m a big exotic fruit lover and I recently started learning delicious raw food recipes. I’m pretty open to different flavors and varieties, I love spices and trying new things. I find a lot of inspiration for my designs from the art of cooking.

What is your favorite pass time?

Travel. I love discovering new places, going to Italy always nourishes me. I also like watching a beautiful movie or dancing jazz and indulging a delicious glass of red wine.
