I always start from a trace in my surroundings. This trace can indicate a mood, a scene, or a story. I research deeply on the meaning behind it, which helps in the decision-making process behind chosen silhouettes, fabrics, techniques, etc. Also, I do a lot of fitting and draping, as I am always fascinated by how garments move on the body physically, and how traces can be left on these garments. I interpret these traces in order to create a whole image.
