Tell us how you started your business / creative venture?
I started designing when I was 10 years old after accidentally pressing on a television channel live streaming Schiaparelli’s F/W show and I was instantly inspired. I’ve been designing for on and off 9-10 years and there are many struggles and doubts along the way.
As they say “you can’t please everyone” I have learnt that the hard way.
My advice is to trust the process of creation and listen to your own heart when it comes to creative decisions.
What made you choose this route?
I was deeply inspired by the craftsmanship of fashion couture and I wanted to become a designer who produces quality and creative contemporary fashion, with this aim in mind, it made me pursue this route.
What are some resources that have helped you succeed?
When I do research, I rely heavily on books as I think there are a lot of things we couldn’t find on the internet as we need to also dig deep into our history and literary culture.
