As a child in her native Russia, Galina learned how to sew and crochet from her grandmother, a well respected dressmaker who had her own atelier.
In 1977 her family moved to New York. Galina enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
As a part of the school's exchange program she studied knitwear in England. Then moved to Los Angeles in 1987 where she designed for several well known fashion lines.
But meeting her future husband Michael truly changed her life. In 1994 they started a company of their own, with Michael taking the business end while Galina focused on the creative aspect of designing gorgeous printed silk chiffon dresses. Based on their overwhelming reactions to her designs, Galina and Michael decided to streamline the collection into a label they named Single.
