How is 2016 shaping up for you so far?

It has been amazing, I couldn't have dreamed of having a better start

So how was LFW? 

Absolutely fabulous! It was a bit manic sometimes, but besides that I enjoyed it very much. I caught up with people I haven't seen in while and I also met so many new and interesting people too. I gained new experiences, and I am so happy that I could work with such great teams

We saw you opened for TOGA; amazing - how was that!?

It was incredible to open their show. I love their clothes, with all the small details, and the runway was super beautiful. The whole team was very professional and it was a pleasure to work with them

Favourite moment?

I think my favourite moment of LFW was right after the last show, when everything was over and it felt like the end of a chapter; I could look back and see what I had achieved
