I get inspired by so many things..
Generally: family & friends, nature, positive thinkers.
Specifically: geometric shapes, Bauhaus, the elegant strength of the thirties, the strong basics of the forties, the positive sense of the seventies, the confidence of the eighties and the cleanness of the nineties. I really like when it gets to a point. I want my work to be elegant, clean, sophisticated, and strong
Persons who inspire me are people with beliefs and sense of style like Phoebe Philo, Damir Doma, Dries van Noten, Helmut Newton, Lee McQueen, Daphne Guinness, Camilla Akrans, Katie Grand and many others
