Who are your favorite designers and why?

Giorgio Armani. Simple and elegant.


Men do not always pay attention to the way they dress. Give some advice to men - how should they dress to be stylish?

Every man has to develop his own personality based on his own individual style. My advice is not to follow the trends automatically.

To do something unique (different than other designers).


What are your plans for the future?

To create unique designs and produce tailor made (custom-sized) clothes and sell them all over the world without trial. I have a contact with a body scanner employing company.
