What got you interested in Fashion Design?
I have been interested in Fashion since I was a little girl and when I was in grade 5 I already knew that I would be a Fashion Designer. Also, I used to have a lot of paper dolls with different styles of clothing made by me.
Who are your favourite designers or fashion brands and why?
I would say I respect all Fashion designers, because they all have their own vision and way in Fashion Design. But i’m interested more in Haute Couture. I like when it has a lot of details and embellishments. I love Chanel! Karl Lagerfeld is one my favourite designers, especially when he works with Lasage. Also, I like Ellie Saab, John Galliano, Giambattista Valli and Valentino.
Where do you find your inspiration for your Fashion designs?
I can find my inspiration everywhere: – flowers, architecture… But for me the best inspiration is mood! I can easily create when I am in a really good mood. Watching fashion shows also helps me to find ideas.
Your fashion illustrations are really good – were you always good at drawing? What do you prefer to work with when designing your fashion illustrations?
When I was a kid , I always asked my mom to draw me fashion illustrations and I always wanted to draw like her. When I was in a high school I started to learn to draw with a tutor. Then I went to college of Art and Design. I remember that I always used to helped my group mates to create and draw fashion illustrations. My works was always one of the good ones.
I prefer work with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. Now I am learning to draw digitally.
How are you enjoying the Style Design College Fashion program?
This is my first time studying online, so I’m really enjoying it. Because I have 2 kids and job I can manage my time and do my assignments when I have time. It’s really convenient!
What are your ambitions in the Fashion Industry?
My ambitious is to be like a Karl Lagerfeld! I want to be a Haute Couture designer and to work with Lasage.
