I’ve always been a feminist. And I’ve been a fashion enthusiast for a very long time. 

Unfortunately, for a long time, fashion conveyed a very negative image of women: skimpy beauty standards or photo editing are a few examples of that.

Women who inspire me are, above all, beautiful people: they have things to say, stories to share, a personal beauty which does not always fit standards.  I started creating clothes for them. In 2016 I created Ypsylone, for all of you who define your own story and have stories to share with the world.
