Very happy to have dressed celebrity stylist Marnix Marni. And of course the beautiful Erin Moriarty to name a few.

It's not really a decision you have to take or make. It is what you are and want to be.

Clients email us with a request and then we set up a meeting. At the moment it is more a zoom meeting.

World Class Paris Haute Couture Magazine: What legacy would you like to leave behind?

I would never look it that way. It would be very pretentious of me, but I think if the house we build continues after I am not here anymore, that is an accomplishment by it self.
