The label Mark Laurus was formed in 2010 by Olga Lavrinenko. Olga Lavrinenko explores the notions of minimalism and constructivism, with her main source of inspiration lying in architecture and interior design, and how they can be rediscovered through her unconventional use of textures, fabrics and materials.
Olga Lavrinenko graduated from St. Petersburg University of Technology and Design. In 2010, she launched her first collection Minimalism. Her collection Presentation was launched in 2011 and presented at Aurora Fashion Week in St. Petersburg. All her collection are selfmade, from sketch to finished items.
