What’s your style philosophy?
“Authenticity.”

Is there a symbol that would represent you?
“A silver eagle feather.”

Where did the initial concept for your brand come from?
“Reschia is conceptual in nature, borrowing elements from architecture, art and music.”

What’s your label’s signature pieces?
“The Rugged Collection, and the Rugged Boot takes the spotlight.”

Going forward, what direction will the brand take?
“The brand is growing steadily, step by step, and that is the direction to go without losing the meaning of what I’m doing.”

What would your super power be?
“To create shoes that make others look great, something unique. Being curious and always daring.”

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

What is your most treasured possession?
“My grandmother’s wedding ring, which she designed herself and is coveted by all the women in our family.”

If you could edit your past, what would you change?
“Absolutely nothing that I could remember.”

Which living person do you most admire, and why?
“Vivienne Westwood, not only because she is a pioneer in fashion design, but also because she is a passionate civil rights and environmental activist.”

If you could go back in time, where would you go?
