How did your Lingerie Collection begin and what made you want to start?
when I was little, I had a dream, and I still have, that one day I am going to have my own exhibition. I still don´t know what will be in it though, but I've planned every little detail of it! From what kind of music, probably some old vinyls..especially those with love songs, they are hiding so many beautiful stories!.. to the exact hour, place and colour of the floor :)
So,the idea of having something small on my own has been on my mind for a very long time. To create something, put it out there with a hope of finding like-minded people that will like my creations as much as I do. And when this opportunity came, I said yes,this is amazing, lets try it! why not after all?
But what really keeps me going, I think, is the love for lace, delicate fabrics and endless possibilities in terms of shapes and cuts and to finally own pieces that perfectly fit and are cute at the same time
If you had to choose one, what is your favorite item from the collection?
Each and every one of them is my favorite!
What is the next adventurous step for your collection?
Well, I have made some ambitious plans about my future and where I want to be professionally, I really am a dreamer! :) Though, I still have so much to learn and discover about lingerie making and the math behind all that beauty.
But I want to set up my own “something”, my own brand. And I would love to focus on custom orders as well, because it really is a struggle to find a perfect- fitted bra!
What celebrity would you love to see wearing your collection and why?
I want all my future customers of all sizes to feel special they should be the celebrities :)
How valuable do you think being able to try your products out in a real store while at university is?
It is so very valuable! Having this opportunity is really teaching me variety of things. This experience shows me that it is necessary to be thinking as a manager and be creative at a same time. I need to know how to manage my time wisely, to think in advance and how to find the best solution to unexpected problems.
And then it is always good to hear feedback from actual customers, whether it is going to be something positive or not.
This student retail opportunity is unique to Solent University; do you think other universities should offer this?
Definitely yes! after all, It is an amazing chance for students to show what they are capable of and for other people to discover young designers:)
