When asked what advice she would give to emerging young designers she says “A lot of people will tell you that you can’t do it, a lot of people will tell you that you’re wasting your time, focus on being you and the rest will fall into place. Unfortunately theres no fast track way of getting your ideas heard but just take all the chances you can get, keep designing until your fingers hurt and follow your heart. One day it will all be worth it”
