WHAT YOU DO
I work in fabric sourcing and production.
WHAT IS THE MOST INSPIRING ABOUT YOUR WORK?
I would say I’m most inspired by people who are thorough, don’t compromise on detail and thoughtful about the impact of what they design and produce. I’m a big believer in finding ways to be less wasteful and having those methods inform how something is designed.
AND THE MOST CHALLENGING?
The most challenging, in my experience, is to not take shortcuts and stay true not only to what you set out do, but more importantly, to how you do it. This also goes for convincing others of the same. It can be very tempting to take the cheaper path of less resistance, but it will lessen how you feel about the process and, I think, how the end-result is experienced.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DEVELOP A FEEL FOR FABRIC QUALITY, YOU’D SAY?
Although I haven’t been working for that long in the industry, I think my idea and feel for quality is quite present already. One part of it is intuition of course, but that also comes from having being interested in textiles since I was very young, but I’m sure (and I hope) my sense of quality will evolve as I get more experience.
DOES SOMETHING LIKE A PERFECT GARMENT EXIST?
I’m not sure I believe in the perfect garment. I think at times the imperfections that come from the process of making and wearing can be the most beautiful.

WHAT IS THE BEST THING WITH COPENHAGEN?
