Why did you choose to go into fashion?
Clothes are the creative support I am the most comfortable with.

Could you describe to us your creative universe?
I could spend my life thinking about clothes that all have a different style. All I want is to have fun when I am creating, and not focus on a specific style. I want to be as free as I can and try out new techniques every day.

What are your sources of inspiration?
Every idea always starts with a nice material: a gripping texture, an unusual pattern, colour contrasts, etc. Then I find inspiration in images: illustrations, posters, tags… Even if I don’t want to be stuck into one particular style, I always try to give my clothes a personal and recognizable touch.

Could you tell us a couple words about your collaboration with MonDéfilé?
To collaborate with MonDéfilé was the perfect occasion to work under the watchful eye of a professional, and to be guided by materials and colours constraints. But the most interesting was to manage to keep my personality and still follow the demand.

If you were to be a piece of clothing or an accessory, what would you be?
If I were a garment, I would be a jacket. If I were an accessory, I would be a hair kerchief.
