Eliya Cioccolato, fashion designer since 2008, loved to buy fabrics and make her own clothes. This was her way to be unique leaving her friends in awe about her clothing choices. She went on to study fashion in China at Economic Shanghai University and there she met designers, visited clothing and textile factories, and learned about the ins and outs of the fashion business. When the economic crisis in Russia happened in 2014, she knew she had to make a change and it was time to follow her dreams.
Eliya relocated from Russia to Miami, FL in 2015 with basically nothing, limited English, and had to rebuild herself from the ground up. She had a store in Russia that she didn’t want to sell and having it inspired her to start her own collection in the U.S. After putting some of her pieces in a trade show in Russia, she was awarded $1,000,000. She believes that was the sign she needed to continue in that direction.
Cioccolato Couture is the fashion line that Eliya created and she is currently managing 40 stores, working with a small team for outsourcing. She has had the opportunity to take part in New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week while selling designs wholesale online and in a showroom in Miami. She’s Miami’s Fashionista that works with many high-end brands including Armani and Valentino, that designs Italian and European suits. Currently her additional business, Fashion HQ helps Russian, Ukrainian, and European brands to branch out in the United States of America. This company provides consultations about fashion and marketing. Eliya has continued to use her expertise to keep her on top in the fashion world.
In July 2022, when she participated in Miami Swim Week, she released her new luxury pajama sets which are signature pieces this season. These chic and comfortable pajamas can be worn outside, and they are currently available on her website. She also just released her new and vibrant Cruise Collection for 2022 and 2023 as well. To secure her future goals, Eliya is working on creating schools for social media influencers to cultivate their paths. In the next couple of months, she will start to solidify her project to begin marketing the company. With 1 million subscribers and 2.5 million Instagram followers, Eliya Cioccolato is well on her way to becoming a household name in the fashion world.
