Confident. Sexy. Feminine. Fabulous! Single, the women’s collection designed by Galina Sobolev, delivers the latest in forward fashion, combining classic style and luxury with beautiful, exuberant attitude. Known for gorgeous fabrics and one-of-a-kind original prints from Italy and France, Single is an unapologetic stand for a woman’s individual style and confidence.
Fashion and style run deep in designer Galina’s blood. As a child in her native Russia, Galina learned to sew and crochet from her grandmother, a well-respected dressmaker with her own atelier. Noted as one of the most profound influences of her life, Galina cites playing with the colorful fabrics and supple garments created by her grandmother as being instrumental in establishing her dream of designing.
After graduating with honors from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan and walking the runway for major fashion houses in NY, Galina began her design career in the luxury market, working for an exclusive knitwear manufacturer for Marc Jacobs, among others. In 1987, she switched gears and relocated to Los Angeles to design for several successful lines in the contemporary market. It wasn’t long before Saks Fifth Avenue and Fred Segal picked up Galina’s beautiful signature printed silk chiffon dresses. In 1996, based on the overwhelmingly positive reaction, Galina and her husband, Michael, streamlined the collection and created their own label named Single.
Single was conceived to reaffirm every woman’s zest for life, romance, and luxury. Since its conception, the company has grown to include four lines, each equally fabulous. Since the beginning, Single has had a loyal following from the finest retailers and customers. The collection can be found in both national and international specialty and department stores, including Neiman Marcus, Harvey Nichols (London), Fred Segal, Net-A-Porter, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, TSUM (Moscow), Planet Blue, and many other exclusive boutiques worldwide.
