The Most Influential New Yorkers of 2011

russia’s new royalty

A major player on the international art scene, Dasha Zhukova’s new magazine Garage (named after the contemporary art center she opened in Moscow in 2008) includes collaborations between prominent figures in both the art and fashion worlds and blends them to a dizzying degree. The stunning 30-year-old contemporary art impresario is not only wealthy by birth, but through her relationship with business oligarch Roman Abramovich, and by her own professional endeavors that include patron, collector, Internet entrepreneur, magazine editor and fashion designer.
