It's always better to stick with basics and minimal deconstructed pieces, as those rarely ever get out of fashion.



How would you describe yourself?
Parisian by heart, wanderer & fashion lover.

What are some of your main passions, and why are they important to you?
Photography, traveling & fashion — I’ve always been passionate about everything fashion related. When I was little, I wouldn’t leave the house if I felt like my outfit wasn’t matching (been giving my mother lots of headaches since ’92).

Traveling also makes me happy. I am pretty much addicted to it, loving to discover new places and hidden corners, learning about other cultures, tasting all sorts of food and meeting new people.

As for photography, I've fallen in love with it since the 7th grade (when I begged my parents to buy me a DSLR camera). It all started with DeviantART, where I began sharing all the artsy photos I was taking and now a few years later, I've become the subject of those photos!


What have been some of the greatest challenges, and lessons, in your journey?
It’s quite challenging to learn how to negotiate, do SEO and say no to brands you feel like you don’t resonate with. Besides that, I’ve also learnt to stay true to myself, instead of simply following a trend. Some trends are temporary and not worth investing in. It's better to stick to basics and minimal deconstructed pieces, as those rarely ever get out of fashion.


What camera do you use to shoot? Any favorite locations or backdrops?
Currently using a Nikon D5300 with a 50 mm f 1.8 lens. As for backdrops, I enjoy using anything colorful — cafes, interesting buildings, vintage cars, etc.

What are some apps you can’t live without?
Lightroom, Instagram and VscoCam.

Where does most of your inspiration come from?
I get inspired by everything that surrounds me. Sometimes I can get inspired by nature or art, while other times I find myself getting inspiration from fashion editorials, Pinterest or Instagram.

Describe your personal style.
Parisian chic & smart casual.


What are your must-haves for this season?
1. Woven bags
2. Midi floral dresses
3. Off shoulder tops
4. Anything gingham
5. Straw boater hats

Favorite color of the moment?
Red, always and forever.


Who are your favorite fashion icons, influencers or fellow Lookbookers?
Alexa Chung, Jane Birkin, VB, Blair Eadie, and Leonie Hanne.

What's your dream collaboration?
Gucci! I’d accept their endorsement in a heartbeat.

Places to shop?
I mostly shop in regular fast fashion stores like Zara, Mango & Massimo Dutti, but when it comes to bags, I like designer ones the best. Accessories can make a huge difference to an outfit, so to me, they are worth investing in.

What does a typical weekend look like for you?
On weekends I have to shoot content for the week ahead, and then I tend to do groceries, come back home, cook something, start editing and then later at night I like meeting up with friends.


What is your go-to beauty routine?
I recently discovered Erborian, a Korean brand whose BB creams I've fallen in love with. Besides that, I also adore the Baby Doll mascara from YSL. As for my morning routine, I tend to first apply hydrating cream, followed by foundation and concealer (I got some designer bags under my eyes, haha). I then set everything with powder before applying blush, mascara and red lipstick. I don’t know much about make up, so I'm just trying to keep it as minimal as possible. Regarding my hair, I've been keeping it up in a bun lately, as it’s easy to make and perfect for the summer heat.


What are you looking forward to this year?
The next few months are going to be hectic. Just hopped on a fun project, which is going to happen in Hamburg, and then I’ll relax a few days in Tuscany before heading to Paris Fashion Week.

Any other travel plans?
I started the year traveling, and continued it like that. Traveled to Turkey about a month ago and need to say that Istanbul surprised me from all points of view. That city is gorgeous. My second favorite is London and I am now looking forward to traveling to Asia.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I make some pretty good raw vegan sweets, but don’t tell anyone ?.



Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In a plane, traveling the world.

What's an inspiring mantra you can leave us with?
Work hard until you no longer need to introduce yourself.
