How did you become interested in fashion?
What are some trends you are loving right now?
Are there any items you find yourself reaching for on repeat this season?
Where do you find inspiration as a designer?
Where do I find inspiration? Everywhere! It’s my job to be looking at the latest trends and stay on top of the latest design and tech trends. Being a designer is such a balancing act because you have to anticipate what will come next as well as creating a product that people are going to love right now. The secret is to always look out for things that are trending but also pull your own flavor into it, so people can identify your style with your brand.
What was your favorite part about NYFW (or NYM)?
NYFW was an incredible experience, a true test of what the high end industry is like. It was so different from Moscow Fashion Week, which I always thought was a much more laid back show. In Moscow everyone would turn up to support the brands they liked and make comments on each other’s outfits and makeup but that sense of community just wasn’t there at NYFW.
