As a child, I was as intrigued by the Evil Queen as I was charmed by Snow White.
I love a woman in a tuxedo, or in a dress, who looks comfortable, relaxed, happy. I'd love to dress Daphne Guinness - she has exactly that attitude.
I continue to be drawn to clarity and simplicity. 'Less is more' remains my mantra.
The pret-a-porter collection will be the same as couture in essence: I love luxury, beautiful products, handmade with care, but at more accessible prices.
I love a woman with a relaxed attitude.
It must be said that it is challenging to balance uncompromising artistic integrity with commercial requirements, but I've also come to learn that couture clients are adventurous and particularly unpredictable in their taste.
Every model is a living sculpture - art in-vivo.
While I tend to keep embellishment minimal as my clients often possess some of the finest jewellery, I enjoy creating ornamentation that appears like installations, to compliment the overall look.
