Is there any specific part of the collection that you would like to uphold regarding its sustainability?
– The part that we call “the permanent” which are garments that we develop with fabrics that can live for long. I will still use them in 10 years since they are timeless.
How do you think sustainability in fashion will evolve within the nearest future?
– I think it will evolve by a lot of new technologies and in 10 years it will hopefully be everywhere.
