Catching up with the designer, who was handpicked by Donatella Versace to helm Versus Versace.
What inspires you? The beautiful, independent women of Paris, especially at night, when they dress up.
Biggest guilty pleasure? To sleep. Whatever happens, I need eight hours a night.
What’s Donatella like? I have always admired her vision – she has inspired even
the most conceptual designers. My heart beat so fast when I walked through the door, but then it was like talking to an old friend.
Any obsessions? Lines, architecture, proportion, beauty. If you weren’t a designer, what would you be? It’d be something to do with observation. I love to watch.
