Oksana Joins Cool Green Fashion For Forests as Spokesperson

By Jeannette Bon Durant


Oksana Kolesnikova, internationally acclaimed composer and pianist, has joined Cool Green in 2008 as a spokesperson for Cool Green Fashion For Forests - the multi-designer eco-fashion shows which benefit reforesting initiatives while providing eco-awareness in the fashion industry. As a Cool Green spokesperson, Oksana also will take part in public appearances to raise awareness of what communities can do locally to reduce their environmental footprint through "greening" projects and reforesting.

Cool Green finds Oksana inspirational. Her integrity, international reach, ability to touch and elevate others through her artistry, and her passion for connecting with others globally to make a difference are the perfect combination for Cool Green. In addition to actively seeking ways to improve the lives of others and supporting environmental remediation, Oksana is currently collaborating with several international artists and has begun a school of music. Recently, the celebrated Italian singer Silvia Vicinelli and Oksana announced their collaboration resulting in a ground-breaking new song entitled "Aurora."

Displaying remarkable talent and passion for classical piano since age five in her native Siberia, Russia. Oksana moved to the U.S. several years ago. She has found unique success crossing classical music with mainstream entertainment, which has garnered her a fan base that exends across the globe.

Oksana's worldwide recognition has landed her spots on the news and television such as CBS 2 News in Los Angeles, PBS national, and HSN, among others. She has performed overseas for the U.S. troops, and when Oksana is not on tour, she performs in Los Angeles where she settled after becoming a U.S. citizen. Many Angelenos, as well as visitors to the region, know about this extraordinarily beautiful artist from her regular performances at Hilton Universal, Sheraton Universal and the Beverly Hills Hotel.

"My love for nature runs through my veins, and I want to do everything I can to preserve the beauty and splendor of this planet. I am honored to be a spokesperson for Cool Green. They are working hard to send a strong message of how we can help the environment," says Oksana.

"I look forward to helping them raise funds to benefit organizations that take action to save our atmosphere. I am also looking forward to getting my hands dirty and planting some trees!"
