Daring-Glamourous-Luxurious with a hint of eccentricity.
The designer stands for timeless, elegant clothing based largely on formal men's attire, translated in a feminine manner yet maintaining a powerful character. Manifesting in collections which include a variety of suits & interpretations of dinner jackets. Focusing his creativity in making high quality garments without an expiration date for women who are conscious about fashion & enjoy building a collection out of their wardrobe.
