LR- Can you tell us about the collection that you will be presenting tonight?
“I’m crazy about nature; my collection has flowers, butterflies and very nice prints. I came back to MBIFW for the second time with a more elegant collection that includes nice accessories by Italian shoe designer Daniela Marino,” said Helen. “We are going to present an amazing show tonight, I hope everybody likes it!”
LR- What is your next project?
“I’m working on a special collection for the “World Cup Soccer Game.” It’s a Ready-To-Wear collection. I called it “Kick Off.” It’s a little more feminine because women don’t like to wear men’s t-shirts,” added Helen. “We will be launching this collection in 2014 in Brazil, my country.”
LR- Did any fashion designer gain your attention this year?
“Yes, I love the designs of Liliana Montoya,” said Helen. “Her collection is all about nature too.”
LR-Could you define your work and yourself with just 3 words?
“It’s tricky, what about 4 words: Love what you do,” said Helen, smiling.
LR-Would you like to give an inspirational message to all your followers and other swimwear designers?
“You have to get a goal and go for it!”
