We interviewed Laura Pons, creator of Claudine custom clutch bags. Her vocation for fashion has been with her since she was a child; therefore, her successful career comes as no surprise.
"Anything goes these days. So, you can develop your personal preferences without prejudice"
Have you always wanted to work in the world of fashion?
I studied business in Barcelona but, ever since I was a child, I liked the world of fashion, so it was a clear decision for me...
What do you have to do to get where you are?
Believe in your work, tenacity, defend it and I always say there has to be a little bit of luck!
What's the best professional advice anybody has ever given you?
Trust your instincts! And don't be complacent!!!
What do you like most about fashion? And about Poète?
I like that there are so many options, anything goes today. So, you can develop your personal preferences without prejudice. What I like most about Poète are the dresses, they’re super versatile.
What's your favourite Poète look this season?
The flower dresses, I love them with some converse sneakers and a long cardigan.
Do you consider yourself a fashion victim or do you prefer not to follow trends?
No!!! Not a fashion victim at all... I just wear what I like and what I think suits me.
Who's your style icon?
Ines de la Fressange.
How do you manage to reconcile your work with your personal life?
Not having children makes it much easier... having my own business and not depending on anyone else means I have more options!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am very home-loving, I love to be at home watching films, series... and getting together with my friends! Nothing better than that!
What projects do you have for this year?
I've got a new product out, the belt bag. So, I am working on it to publicise it and ensure it is well accepted.
