From paint on a canvas to designs on the runway, explore the enthralling talent of artist, designer, magazine publisher and humanitarian, Olga Papkovitch, as she introduces her PopImpressKA collection at Art’s Heart Fashion Fashion Week, New York this September. Drawing attention from across the globe, Olga projects her paintings onto silk fabric, creating a walking canvas with stylish nature enthused designs.
At the age of nineteen, Olga relocated to California as a student at Santa Barbara City College before transferring to The Art Student League of New York. The CEO and founder of PopImpressKA Journal went on to create a clothing and accessory collection in 2008. The classy, elegant and fiercely spirited collection was inspired by her frequent trips to the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, her love for impressionism, Flemish painters and her Mother, Alla Papkovich. Alla was the director of banquets at a Kirov Opera and Ballet Theatre in Saint Petersburg, and at the age of twelve, Olga fell in love with two arts. Captivated by the extravagant and elegant costumes that surrounded her backstage and her talent for creating beautiful paintings. Although she chose not to pursue ballet, Olga uses her paintbrush to dance along a canvas and with every stroke, brings to life her art.
PopImpressKA’s affectionate charm aspires to bring light, vibrancy and solace to our lives. As a young girl in Saint Petersburg she was fascinated with American quilt tradition. Channeling her fascination, Olga progressed to create unique quilted art pieces printed on a variety of silks. The PopImpressKA collection is nature inspired art vogue, deriving from the Russian word ‘Popka’ which translates to parrot, for its pulsating and rich colors.
“I want to bring color and joy to a world which seems colorless” - Olga Papkovitch.
This season Singer/Songwriter presented by AP Music Group Sabrina Salice will walk the runway. Simonetta Lein, an Italian author, influencer, fashion icon, and millennial-activist-founder of The Wish Wall Foundation also will join her as well as Madeline Stuart, an 18 year old aspiring model from Brisbane, Australia with Down Syndrome along with other influences will be in PopImpressKA NYFW show.

Ms. Papkovitch is a Knight of the Orthodox Order of Saint John Russian Grand Priory, an ancient ministry that promotes love, dignity of life and aiding the poor and less fortunate. She is inspired by the compassionate acts of Princess Diana and involved in a wide array of charities including art auctions raising money for children with cancer and the Marsden Cancer Hospital in London, one of the most highly praised charities of Princess Diana.
As a child, Olga was inspired by her mother Alla Papkovitch who, as Director of Banquets at the Kirov Opera and Ballet Theatre in Saint Petersburg, allowed her to tag along to work. She also allowed young Olga to stroll the halls of the famed Hermitage Museum absorbing all it had to offer. Ever since she could remember, Olga was fascinated with American quilt tradition and, channeling this love, she progressed to create unique quilted art pieces printed on a variety of silks. Her first clothing and accessory collection debuted in 2008 and, today, Olga uses her paintbrush to dance along a canvas bringing life to her art with every stroke. She is currently CEO and founder of PopImpressKA Journal, a truly unique art and fashion magazine.
