Denisse, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Fashion Label?
As a fashion designer and illustrator, the inspiration comes to me from everything that surrounds me. The music, (and the melodies), art, cinema, theatre, literature, urban landscapes, energy, hedonism and funny vision of life. I started as a fashion label by chance. When I finished my fashion design studies, I did not get a job, so I started making t-shirts for friends and some stores. That was my first project, but it didnïŠt work. I did not have enough experience in the fashion world.
I decided then to stop and start again, creating a better quality product, with a design that would identify us as a brand.
I started again and put my name to the brand. I created a different style, but that identified me.

We all make mistakes Denisse; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
Maybe not having enough experience in the fashion world, and despite everything starting my first project could be a mistake, but in reality, it was not, because it made me learn a lot. I learned what I should not do anymore. Thanks to that error, start a new project and today is a project full of hopefulness ;)
Denisse, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
Working with clients, I describe myself kind, cordial and above all responsible.
Please tell us Denisse, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
For me, my job is very important., more than a job is my particular way of life. But also my family and my friends. Sometimes it can be hard, because I work too much hours per day, and it is not easy, but I try to spend time every day with my family and weekends with my friends.
Denisse, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I wanted my designs to have some publicity, and it is not easy to contact a celebrity or media outlets, or television, to send them some of my designs.
Anyway, I get in touch with a press agency because I wanted to work with a tv series in Spain, sending one of my designs.
Through that press agency, I got in touch with the stylist of the television series. I sent them my designs, and they loved them.
I've been collaborating with that television series for almost four years ;)
Denisse, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Label.
Each and every one of the achievements that I have had is important to me; I could not choose just one :)
Denisse, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Sometimes it's hard when you have to work, and the inspiration you have is not enough. The well-known "artistic block" is very hard! Those moments are a bit difficult...
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Label?
My advice would be: be humble, work hard, discover your style and develop it because they will identify you with it.
And always be true to yourself.
