What’s your favorite IG account?
What was the inspiration for the collection?
Olympics, Pokemon and anime. I was going to do something with refugees but I decided the idea of sports and color was more of a unifier.
Do you have a favorite sport?
I love ice skating.
How many hours of sleep did you get last night?
What did you eat for breakfast?
I haven’t eaten yet. Whenever I have a show, the andrenaline just keeps me going.
Describe your collection in a hashtag.
It would be #FantasyFutbol
Who did the show music?
It’s this musician NAR from LA. I’ve been wanting to work with her forever, so when the opportunity came up to work with her, it was perfect.
Do you have any day of show rituals?
I meditate and usually try to eat a good breakfast but I didn’t have time to eat today.
Are you going to celebrate after the show?
Yes, we’re having a party tonight!
