“I used to think I was creating an “East-meets-West” style. But now I see more clearly. I think women all over the world are the same. They are both vulnerable and powerful at the same time. They desire to be both loved and respected. Our customers call us “the designer who understands women best.” My aim is to unleash the power of femininity, for women worldwide.”
