What’s the philosophy behind “What’s inside you” and more specifically why this name?

The concept is behind the “you” word. “You” like you, like me. What’s Inside You is what you have inside, and what’s better than this payoff to express the research work and the passion behind my brand WIY?

How do you manage to juggle all the things that you are involved in?

It makes my hair turn white. I really don’t know how I do, but I guess my passion leads me to never give in.

If not fashion what else?

Photography.

What was the biggest challenge you’ve faced when you’ve started your own blog?

Numbers. Facing other realities with bigger numbers.

Is there a special person that influenced your style? And who were your style icons when you were growing up?

The women in my family: my grandma and my mom.
