Get to know the people behind ICHI; here’s a small Q&A from our chief designer!

Name & Job title

Not 2 days are alike. I’m in contact with a lot of creative and committed people, I travel around the world to find inspiration and meeting fascinating people and places. I love creating concepts and stories.

A glass blower :-) and a fashion designer.

What’s your advice to reach your career goals in life?

I’ve just discovered the wonderful world of “pinterest”!
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard/moodboard, where you can pin all the beautiful things you come across online; fashion, styling, vacation, home décor, favorite recipes and SO much more! I’m totally hooked and can’t get enough – it’s so addictive! And the very best part of it; you can browse through other “pinners” board, and get inspired!
