What was your inspiration for the designs you created this season?
This season the collection is called Modern Monestic. You will see long silhouette garments, which are really long clothes. So his time I played with a lot of long silhouette fabric.
What's your favorite thing about being a fashion designer?
I love to create different fabrics. It's fun and I have been doing this for about 20 years.
Growing up were any family members into fashion or is this a passion of yours?
No, but I like to create things. I think fashion is a daily thing. I just like fashion.
Do you prefer to design Fall/Winter garments or Spring/Summer garments?
I think Fall/Winter because you can have so many different layers. You can have a lot of jackets. Spring/Summer is different.
How do you balance creativity with business?
To balance with designs we have a creative side, but at the same time we have a commercial side. It depends on the market because we may design something special for them. It has to be our own style, that's very important! We cannot go out of our own style because of something commercial.
