Can you share a bit about your creative process when designing a new collection? How do you harness your unique vision and translate it into tangible pieces?

My creative process is I think of a direction I want to go with and then I implement it by sketching and designing from my thought process.

Let’s play a quick round of this or that:

Avant-garde runway or intimate fashion show? Definitely an intimate solo fashion show

Couture gown or avant-garde jumpsuit? Avant-garde jumpsuit.

If you had to describe your design philosophy in just three words, what would they be, and why?

Modern, daring, and intriguing. I think that when I’m designing I want to captivate people with creativity and modern clean lines and be daring with what I create in fashion.

Can you share with us the inspiration behind one of your most memorable runway presentations?

I’ve done over 50 shows but one of my most memorable was the show I did in New Delhi India when I had 5 Harley Davidson motorcycles on the runway and each one was started on the runway by myself and my models. It was a memorable moment.

Is there a dream collaboration you’d love to pursue, whether with another designer, brand, or artist?

Yes, I would love to collaborate with Louis Vuitton x Michael Lombard. But I’m actually in talks to collaborate with another huge brand to do a limited joint collection. So stay tuned.

Share some details about your upcoming collections, what should we expect?

Definitely more fire with experimental designs that push the envelope in fashion.

One piece of advice for all fresh talents out there wanting to make a mark in the fashion industry?

Just be true to yourself. There are a lot of snakes and fake people that will approach you. Just stay focused on your goals.
