"The Luisa and Roberta dresses are two of my favourites"
Have you always wanted to work in the world of fashion?
I remember when I was a little girl I used to make dresses with a blanket from my brother's crib and say I wanted to be a designer, but I studied engineering and my professional career had nothing to do with fashion. But a few years ago, when Calista One was established, I came across fashion again and now it is a very important part of my life.
What's the best professional advice anybody has ever given you?
Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.
What do you like most about the Poète label? And of its guest collection?
The flower-printed dresses are so romantic and so full of freshness. And I love the shirt dresses, which I think are a must-have for any guest.
How do you think social media has affected the fashion world?
I think it has reinvented it. In the past, we would buy fashion magazines once a month but, today, the social networks have made trends more fleeting and they change at the speed of light. Besides, it is not just about what you’re wearing anymore, but who's wearing it.
What's your favourite Poète look this season?
The Luisa and Roberta dresses are two of my favourites. They are very versatile and can be used for different occasions depending on the accessories you use.
Do you consider yourself a fashion victim or do you prefer not to follow trends?
Of course, I follow trends (who doesn't ;-) ?), but I never wear something if I don't like it or if it doesn't suit me even if it is trendy, so I don't consider myself a fashion victim.
Who's your style icon? Your ideal labels or designers?
Olivia Palermo. Her feminine and neat style is one of the most inspiring in my opinion. It adapts to any time and any occasion.
How do you manage to reconcile your work with your personal life, especially being a mother of four children?
A lot of people ask me that, especially now that I'm a mother of two! I always answer the same thing: the trick is to overlap tasks. Besides, I have a lot of help from my parents and my in-laws with the children... I don’t know what I would do without them! :-)
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to travel. Run off to the movies and watch a good movie. Enjoy the peace and quiet of my home and, above all, enjoy my children.
