We know that you started to gain popularity on TikTok, can you tell us a little about your journey?
My journey began in one of the most atypical years of my life, during a Gap year in college I decided to start recording outfits sporadically, at first I didn't even show my face and now it's what you can see.
How did your passion for fashion begin?
I always liked dressing “well”, however it was never a passion, I started taking risks more recently, when I decided to create a Tiktok linked to the theme, both in more out-of-the-box pieces and in other areas of fashion. When I saw that it was working and that the public supported and liked it, I decided to give the world of fashion a try and now I have a passion.
How do you keep up with trends and do you have someone you use as inspiration?
Nowadays it's easy to stay up to date with trends, it's a matter of having Instagram or Tiktok.
Even so, I have several inspirations, both in the world of fashion, in the digital world, and outside this world, for example, football players, music artists and others.
What types of obstacles/challenges did you have as an influencer linked to fashion and how did you overcome them?
Fashion is still a topic closely linked to the female world, on social media, for a man, it is more difficult, in my opinion, to succeed in this world.
Any special story with any piece/accessory/sneakers, if so which one?
The most special story I have is that of my high heels, it was a completely crazy purchase and was received by the public in a way I never expected, it became one of my favorite pieces.
