I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman. I do not have one theme for each season, I just try to make beautiful clothes all year round. Fashion can be this mysterious thing that you can’t explain. I am convinced that there can be luxury in simplicity. I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: ’60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated.

Brides today are increasingly sensitive to the tastes, feelings and finances of their attendants. I like the things around me to be beautiful and slightly dreamy, with a feeling of worldliness. It’s sometimes said that I’m rebellious and I do things to push people’s buttons, but I just like the challenge. Never in my wildest dreams did I entertain the idea that I would become a fashion designer. I think God is the most fantastic designer.
