Q: Do you prefer street style fashion or runway fashion?
A: I won't put them in opposition since I believe there's a strong connection between the two. The street can be so inspiring and fashion itself sometimes pick up ideas from it. Then I like discovering how people translate runway fashion in their own way, mixing for example an iconic bag with a traditional costume or a vintage piece.

Q: What are your other interests? How do you spend your spare time?
A: I love travelling and I try to plan two or three trips every year but when I'm not able to travel I like discovering new places in the place where I live, like trying a new restaurant or exploring a new area. I like wondering through parks and flower markets and watching movies till late at night. If the movie is really inspiring, I like sketching what have attracted my interest: the hairstyle of a character or a detail in his/her outfit, a particular scenario or a strange pose.
