Who inspires your personal style

I don’t have anyone specific who inspires my style. If I had to choose then it would be my brother @ChrisMarcelo12. Every time he came (still do) with something daring, and always pushed me to get out of my comfort zone when I’m dressing. Which created the style I got today and completely feel comfortable in.

What inspires your content?

Life and Instagram. Most of the time I just inspire myself of things that I see in real life. I see a spot and know what I want to make. Especially edits. My surrounding is my best partner to inspire me. Then people on Instagram, Instagram is full of creative people who can widen your vision and creativity. People can even change the vision of ideas you already had unconsciously. But please don’t copy others, inspire. And if you do, don’t forget to mention your source of inspiration.

That God gave me this opportunity that millions of people would love to have. I can’t waste it.

Being a recognised designer. I want my brand to be established, with shops all over the world. And then start a second one. Have my music played all over the globe. Exploring the world while I’m creating as much as I can.
