I consider myself a very creative person. For this reason, I developed an interest in design. I originally decided to pursue fashion design because I liked the idea of making something that people use daily and can have an impact on the way they feel. As I began to study it, I realized there’s a lot of work to be done in the industry in order to make it less harmful to the environment and more rewarding to the people that take part in it. I decided to specialize in Knitwear because I believe is the most sustainable way to make clothing, furniture, toys, accessories, and other products. You get full control of the design. I also have a strong interest in functional design and innovative materials. I think my aesthetic has changed over the past years and will keep changing but that’s how fashion works.
