"My collections are the story of a dream, created in a place where reality touches the surreal. Clever silhouettes adorn those illusions, fashion becomes a character within. Inspiration comes mostly from the dark or the magic. Often, I will try to metamorphose feelings into shapes, into textures, into ideas that will decorate people's behaviour or be the expression tool for people's personas. After all, what is fashion for, but an instrument to demonstrate who we are, to excel our own self-expression to surpass us and show the world the strong opinions we have."
