I’ve al­ways been a fan of cus­tomi­sa­tion and it cer­tainly helped me live through this chal­lenge. Be­ing re­stricted forced me to use my imag­i­na­tion and my styling skills mul­ti­plied (if I may say so my­self).

At the end of a year—and chal­lenge—the ex­pe­ri­ence re­ally helped draw a clear line be­tween my de­sires and needs. I am aware that, as a con­sumer, my de­ci­sions have an im­pact on both the en­vi­ron­ment and so­ci­ety. Now, I avoid fast fash­ion and in­vest in qual­ity pieces from young de­sign­ers and in­de­pen­dent brands.”
