Let’s Talk Fashion
Who or what inspires your style? “I grew up in Kosovo during wartime, thus the nearest I could get to fashion was watching MTV and various fashion shows.

Where do you like to shop? “I do get all my clothes from secondhand stores or have them handmade. My favorite second-hand shop is Bootik54 in Vienna. They always have beautiful pieces to choose from.”
