“Black is the most bewitching shade on the colour chart. I love the way how black just highlights forms and fabrics.
And as shoes are the most important item to me, I prefer to wear clothes that don’t seek attention too much but leave the spotlight to the accessories.”

“Everything from peach over powder pink will make my eyes twinkle! This is my power colour-scheme because it’s so soft and feminine, yet it brings light to an outfit
and can really brighten up my day. It’s the more colourful and light-filled alternative for camel and nude hues for me. Wearing pink in a “grown-up” manner is my way of showing the world my female confidence and creativity.”

“I’m a true colour addict. Not just one colour but I love to.. grab the entire rainbow if possible. Spark is my middle name and combining several colourful & playful accents through my shoes or nails is really my thing. I prefer to literally draw myself from top to toe in colour. Cause if that is what makes me feel happy, bubbly and alive, that’s all that matters.”
