Please describe your style in three words.

Girly, bold, and quirky.

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

Wearing too much jewellery.

Do you believe in role models?

There are some people who inspire me a lot. However, a very important thing in fashion (and life) is not to lose your own identity.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Cotton, silk, and chiffon. These are the fabrics used in almost all of my designs.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

I don't think there are combinations that I object to. It all comes down to finding the right way to combine clothes and accessories.

Which city has the best-dressed women?


Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

Bold. There is no time in our life for conservative clothes—all the clothes in my collections are made for girls and women who like to express themselves.

What are the rules in the way you dress?

I prefer garments that I can wear in my everyday life as well as when I am going to a party.

Celebrities and style...

Never stop interacting with each other.

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


A woman should always look like…

A princess.

Who taught you what you know about style?

All the people in the fashion industry that surrounded me when I stepped into the fashion world; I was sixteen.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

It depends on the schedule I have that day.

What is your biggest regret?

I'm too young to regret anything.

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

Never imitate someone's style, create your own. Wear dresses. Don't be afraid to try something new.

Do you have any shopping rituals?

I like buying items that I fall in love with on the catwalk.

We will never see you wearing...

Something boring.

Which new designers do you follow and why?

Rei Kawakubo. She has built an incredible brand with its own peculiar spirit.

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

Kate Moss.

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her style in general.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

A trinket from Prada that I have on my Gucci Fiat 500.

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

A girl wearing an Anna K transparent pink dress.

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

Comme des Garçons.

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

Her dress.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

No. I believe that when a woman is wearing stylish clothes she can feel beautiful—and therefore comfortable as well.

Who would you like to recommend for My Style?
