Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

SM: From a young age I loved to wear nice things and this was heavily influenced by my mum and dad, who took a lot of pride in how they dressed me. My aunties are seamstresses and they would make dresses for myself and my sister. I think it was at the age of 15 when I really started to formulate my own style.
