“I have a passion for vintage design and fashion, but also fashion photography and the way it’s interpreted by society,” she says.
“The world is fascinated by the look and feel of clothing, and I think this is why we are fascinated with the fashion industry.
We have all been inspired by the work of designers and artists like Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney and Joan Smalls.”
