We need laws to protects workers in the International fashion industry, especially all the “slaves “ working in infrahuman conditions in Asia.Consumers should be educated to help to solve this situation.
What is that makes your brand so special?
To love Nature, vibrations that heal, to connect women with beauty, harmony between universal awareness and the real World, through materials and the sensations that they produce, with contemporary designs not extremely modern. I connect with the sacred side of the woman and in her hyperactive dayly life.

I want to go down from heaven to Earth. I want people to understand that all of us were created with the same perfection as trees , that women are almost slaves of stereotypes and beauty patterns ot this time, we are all born beautiful, but different. Every human being is unique and irreplaceable. There are not two identical persons, the body we have to live our life was given to us in perfect harmony, we develop by means of our mind and our decisions. The beauty in the World is unlimited and every human being can create beauty for himself and other people.

I feel that too much visual information is like an interference, like a radio that does not allow me to listen to myself. The vibration of the White color relaxes me, like the silence of a snowy landscape, I feel that everything is in order.
