My first competition. There were 1000 people, I was only twenty years old and I won first place.
What is the source of inspiration for your creations?
My biggest source of inspiration is nature in different seasons: materials, shapes, lengths, lines.
Is there a cut you consider timeless, like the suit in fashion?
Definitely a nice straight cut, a bob with even tips.

The secret to my success is training, along with hard work. I study every day to improve more and more in what I do best.
