Is there a movie, or a book, that marked your life in some way?
It has been some time since I have enjoyed a thing such as a book or a film. But I read a work by Sigmund Freud, “Civilisation and Its Discontents”. The author explains what drives people to certain actions. By this reading I learned that decisions are actually based on emotions, they are not logical. I keep in mind this lesson throughout my daily life. For example, when something is really tempting, I keep myself in line with Freud.
Right now, what point in your career do you think you’ve reached?
I’m very happy with my current career. I feel really privileged since I work with the best brands and players in the fashion world. My desire is to explore the world and to work facing more continents, not only Europe, and meeting new people and cultures.
Do you have a secret diary where you put down your thoughts?
I don’t have a daily diary. But I do write something down when I have a bad day. It helps me to unload my mind.
Who’s the first person you call when you get good or bad news?
For good and bad news I call whoever comes to my mind first. Generally I chat with my eldest brother about this and that. I ask him for lots of advice and I update him on how things turn out.
Would you ever go bungee jumping?
Bungee jumping would not be my favourite sport to do. I would have to lose a bet to try that. I’m scared of roller coasters and heights!
Do you like gardening? Are you any good at it?
I’m not keen on gardening. I actually love reading sitting down in parks and gardens. Listening to birds and nature sounds brings me a peaceful mood.
