24Fashion TV: When did you first realize you wanted to pursue a career as a fashion designer?
When I first learned the term fashion designer. I had been designing clothes from the first moments I learned to draw, at 2 years old, but I didnt realize this was a type of job until I was around 12 years old. I loved drawing Barbie-like women and coming up with different outfits for them. As I got older, I started hand sewing Barbie and Troll clothes. At around 12 years old, I started getting into fashion magazines like W and Numero- and I knew my future would be in high-end fashion.

What is your favorite part about being a designer?
I love the creativity involved. Being a fashion designer is all about solving problems in the most beautiful and inventive way possible. But no matter how creative you get, you always have to solve the problem- and thats a fun challenge. During the problem-solving process, of course mistakes occur. Ive learned to enjoy my mistakes. Mistakes are an amazing opportunity to go in a new direction or come up with an unexpected solution even if its not the one you originally intended. Some of my favorite designs started out as mistakes.
