My name is Alexandra Badan-Roshchyna. Since I remember myself, I was always fascinated by beauty, which I have seen around me. I was always a visual person. I remember wild flowers on the fields near by the forest, they were so high, that I had to look up to the sky to see their grace. And the sun rays were flowing through them, playing with the wind...
I joined the Art School when I was ten years old. When I was fourteen I attended the Art College at the Academy of Arts of Belarus in Minsk. Afterwards, I studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts where I received a degree in Advertising, Graphic Design and Exhibition Design. When I was just 22 years, I had the honour to work as a Costume and Decorations Artist on the famous comedy TV series “The Hero of our Tribe”, which was shown on the central TV channels in Russia.
After moving to Switzerland, I worked for the luxury fashion brands such as Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Anne Fontaine, Dolce&Gabbana first as a sales assistant and then as a visual merchandiser. From September 2017 until March 2018 I was studying Visual Marketing in Fashion and Design at the Zurich Business School and I could improve my knowledges in PopUp store design and visual merchandising. From October 2018 until Februar 2019 I was a part of the creative and marketing team of the new brand KA/NOA Italia in Zurich and created X-Mas Windows and Store Design concept as well as participated at the Man`s World 2019. Following my passion for Visual Arts, Photography, Design and Fashion I created my concept blog https://theflowerblast.com and online shop, which I continue to develop.
I admire many different classical and contemporary artists from Leonardo Da Vinci to Banksy and Mika Ninagawa. I was always amazed by photography, especially the Black & White, and famous masters like Sarah Moon, Helmut Newton, Patrizio di Renzo and many more. I was fortunate to learn from Patrizio and his team, by doing 6 month internship in his studio and really appreciate that.
After so many years I can see amazing wild flowers, even the highest of them, I can see endless new fields, which I want to discover. And I know this journey never ends...
