MOSCOW: ''I dream big. I want to have my own brand, build a family empire" like Trump and Hilton, said Denis Andrievskiy, 20. He was dressed in ripped jeans and sunglasses as he walked in the center of Moscow around 9:30pm. Denis said he started producing leather bags and wants to next produce clothing under the name Andrievskiy Design. He is currently outsourcing the work to Ukraine, where he said labor is cheaper and leather better than in Moscow. However, he is considering moving it to Moscow due to the political instability. I asked if he was afraid of failure. He said a bit, "but what is the point of life if you live in fear?"
