Good people, good weather and good cake.

On her life-to-do list:
Learn to speak fluent Danish—I’ve spent the past one and a half years living in Copenhagen, and I still can’t master it.

Her earliest experience of art:
When I was 13, I saw an advertisement for Jean Paul Gaultier’s fragrance “Fragile.” I think that was the moment I realized I wanted to work as a designer, and incorporate my love for fashion and visual communication.

What she considers a fashion faux-pas:
Chipped nail polish is my biggest pet peeve; it’s the one thing I’m OCD about.

What cracks her up:
Guys with topless selfies on Tinder.

What she can’t live without:
A hot glue gun.

Who she’d like to grow old with:
Someone who’s man enough to sleep in my pink princess canopy bed.

What she’s obsessed with right now:
Nike Air Max Essentials in White —I’m counting down the days before mine arrive in the mail.

Her next challenge:
Coming from an illustration background, photography is relatively new to me, and is something I’m really looking forward to working with more. Working with the moving image is also something I’m keen to explore in future projects.

Her Hero:
Nick Knight. I really admire his approach, and his ability to showcase a designers work from his own unique perspective.

Her WILD Wish:
In an ideal world, I’d have Miroslava Duma’s sense of style, the body of Kate Upton, the sass of Karl Lagerfeld, and the eccentricity of Henrik Vibskov.
