For me, Gothic is something from my youth, when I had a heavy metal phase.
Good fashion is like rock music: all anarchy and revolt.
Jewelry is something that has to do with emotion. That aspect of jewelry really interests me.
I became a fashion designer by accident. I loved to make portrait drawings when I was a teenager, and from that came the interest in what people were wearing and why they were wearing it.
I feel more European than Belgian. However I do think that my Flemish roots have an impact on my character and culture.
