In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

Nature influences everything in my work, especially in my creative process, going for a walk, feeling the air, the sun, the trees is something that inspires me a lot. I think my best ideas have come when i’m connected with nature, it has always given me a feeling of tranquility, i can connect with myself and also makes my creativity develop more.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

It carries a great responsibility, is up to us to really make a big change so the world can be a better place for us and specially for the next generations. We as creatives who work in the fashion industry have to be increasingly aware of creating new ways of producing without damaging the ecosystem. We have to change our habits in a way that we can continue doing what we love but without damaging the most important thing that is our planet.
