Hey Noah! Welcome to Clothia! Please tell us about yourself.
First, where are you from?
Describe your signature design style in five words.
Colorful, quality, exclusive, futuristic, and Japanese.
What's your biggest source of inspiration?
Culture. I'm lucky to be able to travel a lot. When I am traveling, I am like a sponge and I absorb a lot of information that is interesting to me. You never know where you can be inspired.
Do you think true innovation in fashion is still possible?
Yes, using unusual materials and adapting them to fashion. For example, I have integrated a volcanic material called Basalt into some of my products.
What other art forms inspire your collections?
Music, Architecture and in the liberal arts field I am inspired by Astronomy and Geometry.
Do you prefer to follow or subvert trends?
To be original you have to be different. I think if I followed trends then I would not be myself. I try to follow my instincts.
How do you deal with creative blocks?
Jogging or cycling is a good solution for me.
Which fashion designer do you have the most respect for?
Did you undergo a formal design education?
Yes, in La Coruña (Spain), where I am living at the moment.
Do you think collaborations between companies and designers are cash plays or real attempts at innovation?
I consider both. I don't see one thing without the other, therefore, it depends on the project type.
If you had to invent a new color, what would it look like and what would you call it?
A mix between turquoise and electric blue called NC Aura.
Do you work better alone or on a team?
Surrounding yourself with a good team is always important to carry out projects.
If you could travel anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
To a place at a distance of 225 million km. It is called Mars.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of fashion?
Traveling and being with my telescope at nights observing the planets and deep space objects.
What is your favorite food?
I love Sushi.
What's your favorite month or season?
Winter. Specifically, because of its white landscapes full of snow.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
