What is “luxury” to you? How do you define it in your sector of business?

My favorite definition of the luxury is Coco Chanel's: "Luxury begins where the needs end". In one of the most dynamic sectors, I believe that this phrase define the point of view of luxury the best way possible. Everything changes therefore I think the best way of staying unforgettable and special is to build a connection between the costumer and yourself. Luxury becomes luxury when it goes beyond the needs.

Lately the phrase “affordable luxury” is widely used, do you think that it is appropriate for your business industry?

I believe my business can be classified as affordable luxury. Because for me the most important thing is the customer defining her/himself with the pieces that she/he buys from me. This kind of connection makes you indispensable for the costumer and makes your relation stronger by each step.

What are the 5 pillars does the luxury brand like yours build its policy on?

I built my brand's policy on these following five pillars: Creativity, Quality, Attachment, Unicity and Freedom.

Where does your inspiration come from?

My source of inspiration is life itself. Whatever I live in my personal life and I experience, I reflect it directly to my work. The books that I'm reading, my travels, the music that I listen to, everything that I see, I live and I feel, find its place in my work and creation process.
