They constantly ask me how my creative process starts, today I tell you how:
Most of the time I am inspired by things while I am traveling, on the street, on vacation, or even in an exhibition, it can be anything from a flower, a color to the shape of an object and immediately I take a photo.
When it's an idea, I write it down in a notebook or in the “notes" app on my phone. You would be surprised if I told you that sometimes ideas come to me mid conversations, I'm talking to someone and said "wait a second I'm going to write down something I'm thinking" It's very funny but that's how the best ideas come to me.

When I have to start designing a collection, I look for those photos and make notes to see which of all those ideas I can execute. I choose the ones that best suit the collection I want to make, if I am inspired by a summer collection I like to see flowers, beaches, people smiling, outdoor exhibits, music. Everything fits together like a puzzle.

I sit for a long period of hours and even weeks to get the designs going. I choose materials, the sketches are made, they are sent to the factory and "voilá" in a couple of months the idea materializes and we have a beautiful collection of bags in approximately 3 months! LOL
