I thought of the name Tutu after I started working on the designs.

The main influence to my work came from...my love to dance.

...it just felt right.

"I wanted a name that is memorable and classic; the way you feel when you watch someone dance to your favorite song. I also love the way it sounds when you pronounce it."

I see a woman that is proud of herself,

that wants to draw attention

but not in an obvious way.

Someone who's unique and knows her strength. 

You have five minutes to get dressed. What do you throw on?

I'd probably wear a high raise pair of jeans and a plain t-shirt.

What inspires you?

Art.                                                                  Art.                                                               Art. 

"That's my main motivation, my fuel. It can be a poem or a great painting. There's art that can be so powerful, it overwhelmed you. That inspires me and drives all my senses."

What is your personal favorite piece?

That's a hard question,

 but if I have to choose it'd be                                                            

 Francesca.

That was the piece that started everything

So it holds a special place in my heart.

If you could have anyone where your swimwear, who would it be and why?

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Eva Green

and Keira Knightley.

They are all talented women with a unique and impressive look. They always look so effortless but beautiful. In their own individual way, they all represent the ultimate woman on my eyes.
