HOW AND WHERE DID YOU LEARN TO BECOME SUCH A TALENTED TAILOR?

Although I did go to a fashion school I must admit that curiosity and experiment were my first drive to learn about techniques and construction. 

WHERE IS HOME?

I'm from a small town in Bulgaria, but I'm very happy to call London my home now.

WHICH OTHER DESIGNERS OR PEOPLE INSPIRE YOU?

Recently I rediscovered my love of avant-garde and cutting edge. Rick Owens is just one of the many people who inspires me a lot.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I love to get bored. Boredom is my best source of inspiration. Also I draw all the time.

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR PERFECT LONDON DAY?

My perfect day in London is discovering new things and parts of the city I didn't know about.

WHICH OTHER CITIES DO YOU LOVE?

I love the atmosphere of Paris. This place has the power to always put me in a special mood and turns me into a different person. 

WHAT DO YOU READ AND WATCH?  

Anything related to fashion, architecture, art, history or cosmology. My latest TV obsession is Game of Thrones.

WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO EAT AND DRINK IN LONDON?

I've always love the feel of Dalston and Brixton. My ideal places to eat and drink are somewhere unpretentious and surrounded by creative minds.
