Everyone knows I’m a perfectionist. Which means I drive everyone crazy. I’m obsessive over color, fit, feel and every minute detail. Even my first collection was inspired by one fabric I brushed past in a store and just fell in love with. It felt like an incredible pair of tights (I know, but trust me) and I just wanted one of everything in it, in every shade.
I couldn’t get hold of what I was picturing anywhere, because it turns out that it was a rare blend from Southern France. Not easy to find. So, I created the range I wanted. And, after changing the brand name five times, I thought I’d go for something totally original. Like my last name.
I’ve worked hard and I’ve been lucky. I’ve designed for Star Trek, Dune and Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. And with CHAM, I wanted to put that annoying obsession and energy for fit into a line that meant every person wearing it could feel great without effort.
