“When I finished school I went to live in New York for a while and, when I came back, I decided to start a business. I had to study architecture and there I started working in fashion. I started making menswear, t-shirts and jeans, because back then I really liked urban clothing. Time went by, while creating the brand.

This was one of the reasons that prompted me to work to measure, since it allows me to interact with each one. This work taught me the importance of loving oneself. The job of a designer is not only to design or make the dresses, there is also a strong psychological work behind it, especially when it comes to providing support and confidence to the girls. That is what motivates me to come and continue working: that they feel sure of themselves, ”she stressed.
