If there’s one thing you could change in the fashion industry what would it be?

What’s the craziest thing about you?

Beauty to me means different things depending on the context. For a person you can find beauty in the parts of them that make them stand out as an individual, whether physical or within their personality. Although beauty can be found in many places; in music, art, food, our own emotions. It is a primal energy or a value capable of striking the ‘soul’ and allows us to reflect on the nature of life.
