Read below to find out how she developed her style and how it has influenced her work.

-When did you realize for the first time that the clothes you wear are actually part of your personality?

I first realized that clothes are part of my personality during my days in design school. There I had the opportunity to witness the process of creating individual styles of people around me, thus I created my own.

-Who influenced you the most, when it’s about a style?

No particular person influenced the way I dress. Of course, there are a lot of good fashion house creators but I would be dishonest if I were to point out one as a central inspiration. My style was more influenced by my environment and by my own creative curiosity. I get inspired by music, film, different cultures, and from observing people. I like something from everybody that inspires me.

-What determines the most what clothes you will buy?

First and foremost, my budget, haha. Jokes aside, it’s always a combination of price, quality, and design but sometimes design beats the other two and that’s usually the case with shoes. When I’m shopping, I try on many different pieces of clothing. I usually buy the pieces that intrigue me the most.


-What’s the favorite piece in your wardrobe?

I can’t decide on one in particular but if I had to choose it would be my vintage Gucci glasses, a metallic pink leather coat and Manolo shoes.


-Tell us your own definition of a style?

Style is the energy with which we choose what to wear and the energy with which something is worn.
