How are you preparing for fashion week?
By drinking green juices.

What was the inspiration for your fall/winter 2012 collection?
The concept of the warrior — specifically, the warrior’s attributes of vitality, perseverance, and vigor — inspired the mood of the collection.

What fabrics, shapes, and color palettes are you using?
This dichotomy of design is mirrored by the juxtaposition of fabric textures; lush, soft wool jerseys, velvet, and hammered metal satin is set against dark lux wool suiting.  Faux fur and vivid wolf-fur prints further recall the wild, animalistic characteristics emblematic of the warrior. The color palette embodies the mood with deep tones of onyx, arbor, pine, mud, sangre, and skin.

What are your fashion week vices?
Red wine.

 

What is the first thing you’re going to do once your show is over?
Sleep.
