– I took design classes when I attended Klank School in Denmark. I have, since I was a child, had great interest in design, but it wasn’t until the beginning of 2013, that I got more serious about it.
– I mostly design dresses, but I also enjoy using second hand clothing, even clothes I have myself, and create something unique with it. And I knit!
