How do you distinguish yourself from your peers?
I think because today there’s no limits in the world. You can multitask your career and be international so easily because of social media. When I am on a job I can pretty much be everything, from the model to the stylist. I can also address everybody to my social media channels – I can promote any project I’m working through my instagram. I’m not specific to a city or a country – I work internationally.

How do you get out your creative frustrations?
Normally I try to just look through current magazines and draw or narrow down my inspirations because when I’m frustrated it’s usually from too many ideas in my head.

I always take 30 minutes of my day to go on internet and search about anything new in fashion in the world!
