As I often get asked in interviews from where I source my inspiration I always answer that besides my travels above all the people in my life are the most influential inspiration. People, I am friends with since years, people, I get to know over my business, people, who cross my path while travelling, people, who belong to my family. You give me positive energy full of creativity and what I most admire is that you create and creation is what we are here for, our mission, our dream, our path.
So, I thought of changing the roles. I wanted to be the interviewer with lots of questions for people who are close to my mind and heart, who share the same spirit and who are following their dreams as yoga teacher, hotel owner, technological start up, restaurant owner, fashion designer, artist, musician … I believe in sharing the same path we are all following, namely to do something from the bottom of our hearts, motivates others and reaches many more like-minded people to exchange ideas and projects for a better world we are living in.
I just came back from a breathtaking wedding in Florence and the next one is just a couple of days ahead. May and June are THE wedding months and this made me think of MARYAM YEGANEHFAR. She is the perfect example on how much I love my job through which I every day have the chance to meet fantastic people. Maryam stepped into my showroom two years ago because she read an article about my fashion and wanted to buy some accessories. The minute she walked in and tried some clothes I knew I liked her.
