-Which are your favourite fashion designer/brand?
-I adore Yves Saint Laurent and Anne Valérie Hash, but I usually buy high street or 2nd hand, apart from wearing my own designs.
-How and when did your passion for fashion start?
-I have always had a creative mind, so it felt natural going in that direction when choosing education. I think “wearable art” when I make clothes, I like the combination of interesting design and wearability.
-What do you create?
-Ready to wear collection 2 times/year.
-My design expresses a certain masculinity but also a fragile and feminine side of contemporary women’s fashion. Based in Scandinavian design tradition, it is an understated look with the focus on quirky details combined with wearability.
-How do your creations come into existence?
-Each season I find a new inspiration, e.g Music, contrasts of different women types, odd characters. I use this as a base for the collection, then the story and designs evolve gradually when I start working around the theme.
-Since 2003 I have been selling to retailers. I sell through shops in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Greece. Then also via web (www.stylepaste.com).
