“When I was very young, I used to sit in my little room flipping through the pages of Vogue magazine. I practiced drawing and tried to give life to those drawings by dressing up my dolls. At the age of 18, I was finally able to start studying fashion. My first studio was in fact a corner in a small room in my mom’s apartment. When the room got a little too crowded I moved up to the rooftop of our building and soon after evolved into a studio downtown. Today, I am proud to say that my team and I work out of a large, yet very warm, growing fashion house and that my gowns can be found in several countries around the world.”
