At five years old in her native Moldova, former USSR, Masha Osoianu designed and created her first outfit for a doll named Alla. By the age of twelve, she was designing outfits for herself alongside her fashion designer mother and was learning the principals of fashion design and hands-on construction techniques. Being raised by a fashion designer, Masha was continually surrounded by patterns, different textiles and creative people. Masha fell in love with the fashion business and knew it was her true passion in life. Her first creative collection of contemporary hand-knitted sportswear was presented on runway when she turned 15 years old.
