He got involved in the fashion industry through a friend of his girlfriend. At that time he didn’t consider that to be a permanent job. He kept waiting to get a real job but that never happened. Fashion became, little by little, an important part of his life. He changed jobs at one point but still in the same domain. Even though he kept telling himself he has to change the field, the experience he had in the fashion industry was stronger and kept pulling him back. This was both annoying and inspiring.
