GET TO KNOW OUR DESIGNER

WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST AS A DESIGNER?
To me, there is nothing more exciting than honesty in design. I believe that it is possible to achieve honesty within fantasy, which is something I am constantly working toward. I want people to know that they can expect top-quality clothing from me. But I want to go beyond that. Someone who pays close to attention to details, I am very specific about the way that I finish threads and the types of zippers that I use. While other fashion brands try to skimp on fabric to save money, I want to put quality above all else.
WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR PEOPLE ASPIRING TO BE LIKE YOU?
To anyone who wants to become a designer, I say this: Work from the heart. Come from a place of honesty and self-expression and then pour your entire being into your work. Never stop pushing forward and never accept anything as ''good enough.''
WHERE DO YOU GET INSPIRED?
As evidenced by the boldness of color in my Paris-based workshop, I draw inspiration chiefly from fairy tales and legends. When my capsule collection comes out next summer, it will be clear just where my mind is and to what I am looking for ideas.
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR WORK. 
I try to find balance in my work. There are principles upon which I base my work, and those principles can sometimes seems to be at odds with one another. Childishness and femininity, sophistication and modernity. How can theses principles mesh? That's a question I'm always asking myself. I want my clients to look at what I have done and to feel what I feel, never shying away from complexity.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST GOALS WITH YOUR CLOTHING? 
Beauty. That is the highest goal I know of, and it is a moving target that i will never stop aiming at. Through authenticity, I strive for beauty. When you see a piece of clothing that I have designed, I want it to remind you of the sublime, but just as importantly, it should come off as effortless.
