1. What motivates you?
Everything! Every day brings new lessons, ideas and feelings… I can’t live without dreaming and I think that what i’m doing is kind of making the dream become truth. My plan is clear : keep showing collections, integrate a solid business platform and extend to other activities when the time is ripe. No rush, though…

2. Who are your greatest inspirations(doesnt have to be a designer)?

I must admit that I think a great deal about myself when designing. Of course I didn’t create a brand just for my own sake, but I believe that using what I would like to wear as a starting point to the design process is the most truthful and straightforward approach. It allows me to stay focused on my aesthetic statement and also assess my commitment to wearability, functionality, and comfort. I wear my own clothes because It reflects my way of thinking and want to feel how another person would feel in them. I admire designers who have a complete vision, who pay attention to all the details of their brand’s image, and take that vision even further in abstraction and refinement, all the way into the field of art.

3. Do you see yourself ever using bright colors?
I want to make clothes that give the wearer a bold presence without looking contrived or overdone. I wouldn’t say that my use of black denotes a particular macabre fascination — I am more attached to the notion of purity. And by choosing simple, stark lines, I strive to blur gender boundaries; the androgynous dimension is really key to my line. I hope to reach people who do not define themselves primarily as men or women, who go beyond classic demographic criteria.

4. Who is the most important person in your life?
I’m very detached from everything. I feel like i’m from nowhere and everywhere. It’s a great mental observation, it’s very inspiring.

5. What underwear are you wearing right now?
Calvin Klein and soon i’ll be wearing a Rad Hourani underwear.

Love this interview! He is quite the character, I was at his Spring 2009 show and he refused to come out and take a bow for the audience, kinda made me enjoy him even more.
