When did you realize that you wanted to be a fashion designer?
Does your cultural heritage influence your designs?
I think my Mum influences my designs with her knowledge of crochet. Giving a traditional element but with my own knowledge and creativity I am able to change them to a more contemporary look.
Why do you cut the way do ?
Seriously I don’t know why, I draw the lines on the patterns and cut the paper. After joining them together like a puzzle, I then try to shape then into unique form. It just comes naturally. But I wonder is just there already in my mind?
I like going shopping for fabrics. Whenever I go, I spend hours and hours until I decide on the ones I like but I can never make up my mind, so I take more time than I should! Also some of the fabrics I use are vintage, which I usually find on my travels.
If you were to choose between menswear and women's what would you choose?
It is like asking a mother to choose between her son and daughter which one would she kill? You either kill them both or neither. Although there is more of a demand for Womenswear than there is for Menswear.
Any words of advice to young people with dreams of being designers someday?
Work hard and follow your dream. Nothing in life comes easy and if it did, then you won't know what success means. You will only succeed when you struggle to get to the top and remain on top.
