Cloth: How would you characterize your personal style?
Lary: To be honest I have no idea, how I could characterize my style. It changes frequently, sometimes I like this and sometimes that. One week I want to dress like a princess, another week like a punk. That's what I love about fashion: you don't have to commit yourself. You can wear what you want, whenever you want. But to come to the point, I can say that I'm in love with velvet, lace, punk influences and color combinations, also business touched outfits comply with my taste.
Cloth: What is your favorite vintage era and why?
Lary: I really like the 50's and 60's, because people in those centuries attached great importance to their look and fashion. I also love watching movies created in those centuries. It feels like they dispense elegance or something like that. The baroque age is an interesting era for sure.
Cloth: What fictional or historical personality has the best style?
Lary: Coco Chanel, of course, but I love the style of Scarlett in "gone with the wind" as well.
Cloth: As a designer, where do you find your inspiration?
Lary: That's a quite difficult question. It varies where my inspiration comes from. For example I see garment and let it influence in my designs, maybe the material or even the cut. Another example: I take the silhouette of a blazer or a similar thing and turn it into a dress. But for the most part I just have to go out, watch people or read a book. Then my brain forms a 3D model of a new garment.
Cloth: In terms of your own designs what can we expect to see next?
Lary: At the moment I'm really into dark autumn colors like mustard yellow, dark blue, black and burgundy. So I'm going to use many of those colors the next time. But I also set myself the goal to make some more elaborate projects, in other words: complicated cuts, embroideries, more applications and so on.
