Which factors have most of all helped shape your aesthetic sensibilities?
Years of self-exploration and self-awareness of my interests and strengths led to my growing interest in art.

Would you talk to us about the main characteristics of your collection for Autumn/Winter 2017?
The idea behind the AW17  collection is to re appropriate the inappropriateness, deconstruct and reconstruct, to give abandoned objects  a new life or meaning. Unwanted objects such as trash, cargo box and bubble wraps were used to do mark making for print design and reconstruct them into abstract form.

When designing, do you have in my mind a specific kind of woman?
Yes, my designs are an extension of me, myself. I design for women who are androgynous and independent, women who love art and expression of freedom like me.

How do you see the fashion industry coping in these times of recession?
In what way does it affect -negatively, or possibly, also positively- your own work?

I would suppose that high street fashion brands would barely be impacted at all because of their low price point. In the eyes of the general pubic,
luxury and higher-end brands, like my very own, would very much take a hit because there are cheaper substitutes for clothes out there. However, there would still be a very specific group of individuals who would appreciate and resonate with the work that I produce despite its price point.

Have you ever experimented with your personal style?
Yes, of course. This falls back to my on-going self-discovery process through the years. My personal style might change progressively as my perspective
of the world around me changes.  It is all a part of growing up. However, like I have mentioned earlier on,
it is very essential to experiment with your own style, to explore and understand yourself,
in order to develop and create your own distinct style, your very own domain.
