I would never leave my home without…..my sunglasses

What interests me the most about fashion…..the endless possibilities it allows!

Every man should own…a nice pair of shoes

How i cope with stress at work…..listen to soft jazz, instrumentals

My beauty essentials are…i would say…keeping my face as bare as possible i.e wearing make-up only when I need to

If my days had one extra hour I’d…read!

one special thing about a design that could make it catch my attention….deceptively simple looking while being very detailed and intricate in execution
