Please describe your style in three words.

Free from constraints.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Not feel at ease.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Velvet to see, silk to touch, cashmere to wear, leather to smell, duchesse to hear.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

When it's too combined, too perfectly styled, that becomes too predictable. I love a touch of imperfection that makes the look unique and more intriguing.

Which city has the best-dressed women?

Sex and the City? Hahaha!

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

I was born bold.

What are the rules in the way you dress?

No rules, I aim for freedom.

Celebrities and style...

They go together only with a great stylist on board.

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

A blazer.

A woman should always look like...

Fresh. Sexy. Humorous. Confident and cool.

Who taught you what you know about style?

All the experiences I have gained. I do not have the same taste I had in my teens; it's a long path to make it more and more sharp and subtle.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

It depends on the mood I have when I wake up.

What is your biggest regret?

Mmm… next question?

The three essential things a woman should know about style are...

How to walk in heels. Only show your lingerie intentionally. Never wear skin-colour tights. And a little tip: if you have any doubts, wear black. It's hard to do it wrong.

Do you have any shopping rituals?

No, I don't have any. I used to shop in a compulsive way; it was like my mind had a blackout, not thinking at all.

We will never see you wearing...

A uniform. Did I tell you I love freedom?

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

No one person in particular. It's very restrictive. I'm open to variety; I like very different types of people. It all comes down to the overall attitude of a person.

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Eyes and posture. Then the whole figure.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

All the pieces that are closely related to my best memories.

The one image that defined your approach to style...

A blank sheet of paper or a white wall in front of me.

Which designer never fails to impress you?

Rei Kawakubo from Comme des Garçons. She is a fabulous mind with a strong integrity. She's not only the designer of the company, she actually designs the company as well.

One article of clothing that a woman needs to pay close attention to is...

Her shoes. They are the closest connected item to one's personality.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

I wouldn't say comfort, but being conformed is the worst enemy!

Who would you like to recommend for €œMy Style€?

You, Haris! And I ask the questions…

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

Enjoy the journey more than the destination.
