Inspiration wall: “On the wall of our studio is my collection of traditional items mainly from China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Morocco, and Japan, where my partner is from. There’s a lot of superstition in a lot of traditional clothing; for example you have this Chinese mask with insects on its tongue and snakes representing bad spirits. The masks are meant to protect children from these bad spirits. I’m also a bit superstitious — I try my best to maintain a good atmosphere in the studio, which I believe goes into my clothing. But the difference is that I believe in the positive side, so not protecting against evil but that we get stronger if we have positive vibes.”
