I'm not like most designers, who have to set sail on an exotic getaway to get inspired. Most of the time, it's on my walk to work, or sitting in the subway and seeing something random or out of context.
Time passes faster and faster, but with every project I always want to find the next challenge and the next challenge is just as exciting as the previous one.
I don't care how small or big they are, insects freak me out.
In the beginning I pushed toward perfection, but it takes time to get to certain places.
There's a tendency to think that young designers only do fantasy fashion, but I'm more interested in making clothes that women can afford.
No one ever taught me, and I never had formal classes in pattern making, so I was like, Okay, I'll just drape, and I'll sew as I pin it.
No one is going to understand your brand better than you.
When I decided to launch my first knitwear line, it was because I saw a void in the basics category. The editors were always looking for cool, fashion-forward tees and sweaters. So that's where I started.
My mom would take me to restaurants, and the first thing I'd ask for would be a pen and a napkin, and I'd sketch shoes and shoes and shoes.
A lot of my work is a matter of reacting to surprises in life.
Any style that Nike makes in all black, shoe, sweatshirt, onesie, doesn't matter, I pretty much need to have.
I like to write and draw everything with sharpies. I even got one with my own name on it!
If someone realises the piece they are wearing is inspired by me then it only broadens my audience.
I tend to like the most basic pieces with the perfect fit and fabric, like a simple tank.
I've always loved when girls carry their wallets as a clutch instead of a bag.
