11960007_1193632230653477_694093874363263190_nThis grey Danish Sunday I want to write about sunny Anastasia Takki, painter, designer, author of books and creative studying programms for grownups and children.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Anastasia. And it happened for me to be born as a painter. My parents tried many times to direct me for more ‘earth’ professions, but they didn’t successed. From 6 years old I started to sew dresses for my dolls, and from 16, I sewed clothes for myself and my classmates.

I design products as long as I remember myself. I tried all directions in this area from polygraphics to interior design. Because my love to fashion I started to study master’s degree at Lomonosov Moscow State University, where my lecturer was famous fashion critic Aleksandr Vasilev.

And then a miracle happened. I wrote a book, and it was published at one of the biggest Moscow publishing offices, and to my love to fashion I added love to writing.

I think when you are immigrant, no matter how you know language, there can be some barriers when you speak with native citizens. They all have common memories about childhood (movies, cartoons, jokes, history lessons etc.), and for foreign person it can be difficult sometimes. For the moment for me it is important to be integrated into Danish society, so I try to discover different things that all Danes know.

And the first thing, my Danish friends advised me to watch, was TV – show “Matador”.

The show was going from 1978 till 1982 and it is still is shown on television.
