Why did you choose to go into fashion ?

I like the challenge and autonomy to create, from a white paper, a garment of which the first function is to embellish women.

Could you describe to us your creative universe ?

My universe translates my admiration for glamorous esthetic of the Hollywood cinema and its heroines suche as Lauren Bacall or Marylin Monroe.

But what would be this universe without the contribution of the music? I like to listen while working of the pop,rock'n'roll and house music

What are your sources of inspiration ?

The arts: Mondrian for its graphic aspect, the juxtaposition of colors and the pure esthetics of the Japanese influence. I follow my everyday instinct so that my personal desires can correspond to the expectations of the market.

How do you manufacture your pieces ?

The manufacturing of my products comes true from the collaboration with my deisgner, my seamstress and my workshop.

Could you tell us a couple words about your collaboration with MonDéfilé ?

I always privileged team work. This is why the contribution of MonDéfilé is a major asset in the launching of my brand.

If you were to be a piece of clothing or an accessory, what would you be ?

If I was an accessory I would be a scarf to bring to each of my looks its personal touch.

"With Japanese and graphic inspirations, I bring my own touch to embellish women."
