ON ALL HANDS
GRIGORY LEPS DRAWS SKETCHES FOR DECORATIONS.
In 2015, the singer founded the jewelry brand GL Jewelry. In collaboration with Russian designers Pavel Belov and Konstantin Maturescam created the first collection. Massive skull jewellery, Oriental ornaments, biblical scenes and symbols… is Now at the helm of this business is the wife of musician Anna, but the last word in all matters remains with Gregory. “The hardest part of building Jewelry house was the selection of the team of people who would earnestly burned their work – says “StarHit” the artist’s wife. – We had to understand all of the details of production, design, be aware of news and trends in the market. For two years we learned the hard way, which is the product from sketch to finished jewelry. There are some models that are created entirely on the idea of Gregory, for example, the bracelet “All the Saints”, it practically does not remove. Another favorite model husband – bracelet “Skull”. Looks neat, but incredibly beautiful. I wear jewelry from the female line. Almost all accessories are easy to combine with casual style. Of course, we are more focused on individual approach to the customer, and to apply it in the mass market is almost impossible. Author’s design work is unique, so is not cheap. But who knows what ideas will arise tomorrow!”
SOFIA ROTARU STUDIED THE DECOR OF THE INTERIORS.
The singer – businesswoman with almost a decade of experience. The hotel VILLA SOFIA in Yalta opened the doors in 2009. “The project has given great moral and financial cost – recognized Rotaru “StarHit”. – Is that hospitality did not have to study. The rest of the step by step mastered a variety of tricks. Began to pay attention to detail in restaurants and hotels. Now, if I have to go on tour, be sure to look at popular places in the city to spy out there ideas for the interior. A couple of years ago at a hotel in Italy saw a vase for a single flower, I thought she was very graceful and refined. On the spot ordered twenty such in our restaurant”.
“At the hotel in Florence was like a mini-perfume BVLGARI, collection of “White tea” that is used for rooms guests. Put the same at – compliments from visitors not long in coming,” admits the singer and businessman.
ALL BY HERSELF
ANNA, HAVING TRIED ON ON ITSELF A ROLE OF THE PERSONNEL WORKER.
Last year the star of the show “Univer” opened a beauty salon “the Culture of nail Polish”. “Since childhood I dreamed about it, – says Anna “StarHit”. Always watched the hands, and as he got older, learned how to do a manicure professionally. The salon is my baby, I’m not just his face, in control of every little thing. Even masters at work took her – for the sake of learning the rules of conducting the interview, I read a lot of literature on this topic. Tested candidates were asked to demonstrate skills on models, carefully studied the errors of each. It was also important that girls not only did everything perfectly, but he was pleasant, able to create the atmosphere of a real holiday beauty for the visitors. Came up with different situations and asked how they will behave? For example, if someone of the guests will be unhappy? The tests were the most persistent, later watching them, I realized that I have not wasted so much time “personnel officer”.
MY DEAR ACCOUNTANT
LEV LESHCHENKO MAINTAINS THE FINANCIAL SIDE OF THE BUSINESS.
“Trust, but verify!” – that’s the motto under which the singer for 17 years and runs a furniture factory “Vladimir LPK”, located in the city of Kolchugino.
“Long before the appearance of the business I used to keep track of where and in what quantities the money is spent, says Leshchenko “StarHit”. Tour – this is also a huge financial investment, so, not to deceive, it is necessary to control accurately the books of accounts. But, of course, with the advent of the factory had to deepen knowledge of how to dig in the papers, because it is one thing to count how many paid for a few concert costumes, and more – to keep track of huge amounts when it comes to big production.”
“In parallel we had to start to understand the wood, the specifics of the processing of each of them. But now sleep peacefully, knowing that everything is under control and I know from before”.
TIME IS MONEY
KETI TOPURIA MASTERED TIME MANAGEMENT.
December 2014 Katie – not only the soloist of group A’studio, but the owner of the fashion boutique KETIone. “When touring extensively, taking care of your child, time is terribly lacking, says Kathy with “StarHit”. – With the introduction of our own brand, I realized that I needed to learn how to manage energy and inspiration. Otherwise, can’t do anything. So I had to plan: as soon as we have a spare moment, take a pencil, sketched out the designs for the new collection. From the first days of work the goal was not to try to grasp the immensity and do it all yourself, and the right to distribute the tasks to delegate to their employees, always listen to the opinion from the outside, but retain a personal point of view and personality. Judging by the popularity of KETIone, I can do so well”.
