In my family, art has always played an important role. My background in fine arts helped me with the decision to become a fashion designer. I look at clothes as a wearable canvas. They can be a mirror of emotions but also a means to deliver a message or to stimulate interest and conversation. I decided to specialize in knitwear because of the freedom we have in creating our own fabrics and texture. I love that knitwear opens the doors to a conversation on sustainability and I would like to pursue a master’s degree in this subject in the near future.
