One of the recurrent questions I get asked is “Who are your clients ?”
At a time when algorithms are shaping our ideas of “what is trending”, with images that encourage consumerist urges and trigger different ideas of Luxury, not to forget the latest beauty standards that somehow turned their back on Nature’s gifts..
Well, as a fashion designer and maker I do live every business milestone as a victory amidst that self-imposed digital system that has blurred the paths to success for newcomers, but also impaired older labels in their digital transition. A new system that influences towards immediate validation instead of sustainable growth, therefore I live every client purchase as a moment of grace 🙂 I have added a new blog section on my site called “Eight Questions with..” where I get to present wonder women who have shown support to my brand, whether since the early days or more recently.
I’m starting “Eight Questions with..” with Mrs. Rosemin Manji @roseminsworld , Digital Influencer and Founder – Managing Director of RR&Co. Bespoke Luxury Management, leading luxury consultancy firm in the Middle East.

When I shop I’m only interested in good cuts and fabrics, and that’s the ethos of her brand.It reminds me of pieces I own from Alber Elbaz from 10-15 years ago and still have them.
