Why did you choose to go into fashion?
According to me, fashion represents our era’s codes and is an integral part of our everyday life. Fashion is quite sociological. I am also interested in the connection between tradition and modernity: how you can use traditional details, develop them and reuse them in a modern way.

Could you describe to us your creative universe?
Minimalist, graphic, architectural and geometric

What are your sources of inspiration?
Contemporary art, graphic design, architecture and all the travelling I do.

Could you tell us a couple words about your collaboration with MonDéfilé?
I am thrilled I have the chance to collaborate with MonDéfilé. I like the fact that they propose unique collections, and exclusives models at affordable prices.

If you were to be a piece of clothing or an accessory, what would you be?
I would be a bag, because it contains a bit of our life and our intimacy. The bag is a personal object that tells a lot about someone. I like to think that a hand bag is never transparent, always has something to hide, or at least not to show to everyone else.
