-I love the romantic shape of Sessun brand; then Paul&Joe, Rodebjer and Acne for their nordic style. But also the street style of Insight and pop style in Jeremy Scott.
-How and when did your passion for fashion and design start?
-I love creativity since I was very young; sometimes it becomes design creations or fashion or graphic design.
-In Cherie’s Flakes I create beachwear, specially bikini. They are all unique creations. As materials, I use lycra, elasticated cotton and viscosa; than also lace, tulle, pom pons nad flowers. They are completely handmade.
-Cherie’s Flakes style is very funny, colorful, easy and feminine: a real colour explosion for summer, sometimes a little bit hippie, some other times sexy. Really girly.
-Cherie’s Flakes come into existence from my purpose to create someting completely handmade, choosiin every time different mix of colours and details. From a very simple process, but that bring me to create a final very original object. My inspiration come from the simple love for beautiful things to use.
-I sell Cherie’s Flakes creations specially thought Cherie’s Tree House, a small market that I organize two times a year and in which I invite to expose other small brand like mine. I sell also in some shops, as WOK in Milan and Bolondon in Bologna. This ss09 I’ve created a limited edition for Wok store: special beach wear with a wonderful necklace made with lycra.
-Do you work also on contract?
Yes, is possible for costumers to choose shapes and textiles in order toh ave a limited edition for their store.
