Apprentice

I used to envy those people who knew right from the start what they wanted to be in life.
Now I'm not that sure.
I graduated in industrial design and started working as interior designer, but my inborn curiosity and desire to go further led me to deepen my interests and so I started a blog, studied fashion sociology, started another blog and then studied cool hunting at Central Saint Martins in London. In the meanwhile, I worked as a wristwatch designer, fashion forecaster, teacher and assistant, graphic and textile designer.
This may seem a strange mix, I know, but it's the recipe that made me the person I am.
I'm curious, determinated, passionate, always willing to start new challenges.... AND NOW I'M A TRENDHUNTER :)
