What’s your favorite part about your job as a fashion designer?
I get to be me! I don’t have to change a thing about who I really am. I am just getting started and I will evolve and get better and better, but my focus is always on moving forward and improving. I love that I get to express myself through my designs.
Tell us about you at home…how do you unwind?
I like to drink a glass of Champagne. In the summer I love the limited edition Moët Ice Impérial in a glass with ice and strawberries. It’s so delicious! And it goes down so smoothly.
Favorite restaurant/cafe in Zurich?
I have a friend who owns a great Italian restaurant Bottega Berta. It’s a really fresh restaurant where everything is homemade – the sauce, the pasta. My husband and I go there once a week, we always meet with friends and have a great evening out together.
Who inspires you and why?
Anybody who loves what they do for a living. People who are always trying to do something new or achieve a new goal and get better and move forward every day with their work inspire me.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Be patient! You will be happy. You’ll get to where you want to go so be happy where you are right now.

What location would you want to be locked in overnight (eg. Museum, Boutique, etc.)
