Wanting to move to Milan to become a designer at age 14 is a pretty definite plan.
Yeah I mean I was making clothes early on. It started with outfits for my Barbies and then with my grandmother who was a pretty good seamstress I would design and then make clothes for school dances. We would go and pick out the fabric together and I would sketch what I wanted.
Were either of your parents creative?
Yeah my mom actually studied fine arts and growing up we would always do crafts together, we would paint and make things out of clay. My dad does accounting.
