How did you get into fashion design, and why was it something you were drawn to?
I think I have always been drawn to the field of fashion design. I have very early memories of specific clothing and jewellery that me and the people around me wore, and I remember being very aware of what I wore myself.
In your collection, you aim to redefine the perception of accessories. Why do you think it is essential to redefine accessories?
My first answer was that it, of course, isn’t essential at all. But I also do think that it is always important to redefine existing concepts. In order to move forward and think new thoughts.
Can you tell us more about the process of making the collection BIG ACCESSORY ENERGY?
A teacher once told me to remember that, ”it is only fun as long that it is fun”. That saying has been leading the way in my process of making the collection. Choosing to work in this industry is not the easiest path, so then it has to be fun in order to be worth it. So, I only did what I found to be fun, and let that feeling lead the way in my work.
Can you talk about your inspirations and how your style has evolved since you began?
My style has evolved immensely since I started to study fashion, and even long before that. I have always changed styles a lot; I guess it has been a physical manifestation of me developing as a person and growing up. Right now I really like raw materials.
How do you feel about the future of the fashion industry? What needs to change and what needs to stay the same?
I guess almost everything has to change. It is a weird industry but with a lot of good people in it, those I want to stay the same. I would love to see a shift in focus from money to more emotional values.
What projects can we expect to see from you?
I really want to learn to be a silversmith and start making more durable and wearable jewellery.
Last question: What would a utopian society look like for you?
Again, I would really like to see a society where emotional value concurred economic value.
