I was working at Louis Vuitton when it truly hit me that I wanted to fly on my own, it took me two years more to prepare and realize but it was worst it.
There is a woman I am inspired by what I want to wear but I am really attracted by girls with strong personality mixed with an angel face, I like to think my garments will go from the bold lesbian to the classical politician.
Free, colourful, strong.
I know few designer that doesn't know pattern making and do it well but I feel it's easy to go in circle when you don't have the knowledge of the structure.
I grew up in an Architect family and I oriented myself in my early age in artistic field, I think that is why I like to “paint on my design”.
I wouldn't say that. Art has to be really disconnected from the reality, I see myself more as an artisan who likes to go a bit crazy with her prints.
I started with the rorschach stain test (the psychological one), I like the movement made by ink and the fact you can see whatever you like depending on your mood and your background. I started with scarves and made a complete collection from the same pattern.
It's really both coming together, I can have an idea but the material will for sure change it a lot.
Strongly, some loved it others hated it. I was really happy to avoid soft or polite reaction. if there is something that I don't want to do its mainstream.
My next collection will be a mix of decency and indecency inspired by the border between California and Mexico.
Not really for the shapes, I am not a very nostalgic person. But for the knowledge and technics it is a must to know what is possible.
My travel to Scotland this winter, I loved the atmosphere in the highlands the light changing all twenty minutes, the darkness and beauty of Edinburg, it is really a strong and deep culture.
