Is this your first collection?
Fall 2014 marks my fourth collection.
How did you get into fashion?
I came into fashion from the architecture industry. My university education in architecture gave me a powerful foundation in the field of constructionism that is a great support when designing a collection.
What’s the inspiration behind this specific collection?
Designing this collection I was inspired by the structure of the human body. I worked on a contrast of materials, textures and colors. The most important goal was to create a new vision of the matieral. To make a feeling sculpture using light weight fabric and the sense of a light and airy cobweb using heavier fabrics.
Tell us about the materials, fabrications and details used.
The main material I used in my collection is natural leather. I got the feel of this material and literally started to sculpture different structures out of it. Leather was combined with light chiffon. The contradiction of leather and chiffon plays a leading role in my collection.
If you compared your designs to any place in the world, where would it be?
It is definitely New York City with it’s fusion of many cultures and styles.
What fashion rules do you think should never be broken?
One of the most fundamental rules that should never be broken in women’s fashion is that you can wear whatever makes you feel amazing, whatever that may be!
What are your feelings toward the Kimye VOGUE cover? Take away the celebrity aspect, do you think that aesthetic was VOGUE-worthy?
Everything Vogue is doing is true and constant. The work of Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and Annie Leibovitz has always been remarkable and has definitely taught me a lot.
