ALBUS LUMEN has emerged as one of the most successful Australian fashion brands on the international stage within only a few years, successfully stocked by retailers including and Net-a-Porter.

Raised in St. Petersburg before moving to Australia in 1998, where she completed a commercial degree at Sydney University, Afonina began her career as an intern at Harper’s Bazaar Australia, later becoming the magazine’s fashion editor, before styling for titles including Elle, Russh and Vogue.

The catalyst for establishing ALBUS LUMEN was a lack of simple essentials for modern women, vacation-style basics that avoided trends and fads, an ethos that remains at the heart of the brand today.
