Ksenia Konovalova is the Head Style Adviser and Partner of Ian Rios New York. After accepting an invitation to grow alongside one of the most prestigious menswear clothing brands in New York, Ksenia moved from Europe in 2014 where she was a known figure in Media, Leisure, Travel, and Style circles. Having a Master’s in finance, Ksenia quickly understood what it takes to run a successful enterprise and developed her passion for modern menswear and the creative process involved in making a custom-made garment. Fully immersing herself in the field, Ksenia trained with master tailors of over 30 years experience from New York and around the world. In 2015 Ksenia helped establish the new but promising custom clothing company Ian Rios New York, where in February 2017 she became the Head Style Adviser and Partner. On weekdays you will find Ksenia around the city seeing clients, in the studio on Madison avenue styling new orders, or at coffee shops discussing new and exciting partnerships. On the weekends Ksenia will most likely be doing something fun with her husband,dog, and cat (and sometimes friends LOL!), or just relaxing and recharging for the new week.
Richie Johnstone is a natural born businessman who has always circled around high fashion. He began his entrepreneurial journey at a very young age, specializing in luxury real estate, private aviation, and of course custom clothing. Richie brings to the table a unique set of strengths, passions, and style that are neatly aligned with the skills necessary to flourish in the fashion industry. Over the last 5 years he has built a large network of clients and connections that have always stayed true and loyal to him because, above all, he’s a people person with a deep desire to lead others to success; starting with their wardrobe.
