I don’t really have people in particular that I follow as my inspirations. All of these women, mamas or designers, inspire me. Some make me laugh, others give me ideas, and others make me want to continue what I’m doing. It’s a mix!
I first started making pieces for my daughter. Several of my friends asked me where I bought her leggings, and some moms stopped me in the street to ask too! So my husband made me an e-shop, and I was nervous, I admit. In the first month my small business was getting a good response , but then by the first 3 months, I had received thousands of orders! At that point, I realized that I had created a brand.

My husband is my other half, without him I wouldn’t have been able to develop this business. We are very complimentary. I design, create and take care of all the artistic parts, and he’s a marketing pro, so he gets to put my ideas into digital form.
Oh la la, I’m flattered, I’ll have to make some new ones! I thought it was really cool to break away from Instagram and get behind the camera to be more real to people. On my end, I love watching interviews or street style videos and think it lets you get to know the person.
There is no worse feeling than to see his work copied. But it’s actually a good thing, because on the other hand, it gives us a vision of the reach we have!
I’m working on A LOT of cool projects and can’t wait to tell you more. But I hope the brand will continue to be sold all over the world. What matters to me the most is to continue creating quality.
For me: all black Birkenstocks, leather shorts, one-piece swimsuit.
Receiving emails or comments from women thanking me for inspiring them to create their own businesses. I think that’s my greatest reward.
Think big. Do not think that your business will stay small.
