What is your professional background?
I graduated in fashion design degree in Barcelona, and ever since I’ve worked as an entrepreneur and freelance mainly as a designer, creative director, and marketing specialist.
What is your relationship with fashion and design?
Ever since a child, I’ve always used my creativity to develop stories that allowed me to digest life. Design and fashion is to me, my way of expressing my essence, of covering my body with the shapes and patterns that feel aligned, coherent to my essence and personality.
There is an emotional language that is transmitted through fashion that is understood on a subconscious level. We are inclined and attracted to certain colors, forms, and textures, and that to me is a very important aspect of my life.
Fashion helps you bond with your environment, it not only conveys a message, but it also unites and divides society. It is a powerful tool that I am proud of knowing as a creator.

What can you tell me about your work?
I’ve designed for both men and women, and I realised I have a very polarised and distinctive imaginary for both genders.
The way I envision menswear is very different from how I see womenswear. I like to play with the connotations of feminine and masculine energy, kind of similar to yin and yang.
Overall, I feel connected to monochrome looks, with fitted forms combined with more oversized or deconstructed elements. I thrive with a balance between luxurious fabrics with raw finishes and natural compositions.
I like to accentuate the body, but in an effortless chic way, so that there is enough personal power and sexiness to transmit through the clothing.
