Interview // GFY Vintage

"There's a moment in your life when you realize that you want not to dream but to live your dreams. Our passion was always to sharpen the knife of reality. To express ourselves in all ways we can and create new when we're running out of the old ones. One of them is through the style we have. We love creating outfits through which we speak to others. So we decided to spread our passion and the style we're crazy about."

We speak to the girls from GFY Vintage; Yana, Lisa, Yekatrina about life, loves & Inspiration!
