What made you want to get into entrepreneurship?
It was natural, I'm convinced that it's a state of mind that you either have or don't have. It's a difficult daily life, whether it works or not, it's without a safety net, it's on you. And at the same time it's a fabulous adventure, which pushes you to surpass yourself, we also learn a lot about ourselves.
Why the shirt and where do you find your inspiration?
Most women “collect” shoes, I have always “collected” shirts since I was a teenager, cotton, denim, linen, vintage, new and lots of different brands. It's a garment in which I instantly feel good, whether worn dressed to the nines or more casual. It’s “torture” for me to wear a t-shirt ;)
I take inspiration from everything, I look at everything, what we did before and what we do now. Even if my shirts are timeless and classic, the eye and the image must remain fresh!

D+ for care, what does that mean to you?
Inner beauty – reverse the trend, start at the beginning, namely taking care of yourself from the inside, through diet and food supplements and not just through creams and serums. Adopt new reflexes.

Quite minimalist – I like to test new products over a minimum of 2/3 months and never too many products or supplements at the same time.
If you had to keep just 1 beauty product, which one would you keep?
