What did you want to be when you were a child?
When I was as little as 5 years old I used to say – I will be a fashion designer! Another answer was a vet, but this option was cancelled because of my fear of blood. So, I can say – my childhood dream has come true!
Who are your favourite fashion artists at the moment and how did they influence your work?
I have some groups of interests and inspirations. Yohji Yamamoto,Martin Margiela, Chalayan, Rick Owens- for deconstruction and conceptualism. Also every season I look for news from Jil Sander, Celine, Alexander Wang, Acne Studios – for clear aesthetics and minimalism. Analyzing Vetements, Y Project helps me to understand future fashion moves and changes of aesthetics. Also, I am very interested in men fashion, so I am exploring the works of Boris BidjanSaberi, Juun J., Raf Simons, Masahiko Maruyama, DamirDoma,and Sean Suen.
What’s your proudest achievement in your career?
It is quite difcult to say. Diferent steps have their own achievements.For example, the last year’s biggest achievement for me was my personal pop up boutique where I presented my last collection. This year, I am very proud of taking part in the Warsaw fashion week exposition. But, honestly, I was very proud (very very!) when I saw a woman walking in the street dressed in clothes created by me. It was such a happy moment, worth of all those hard working hours and believing! !
