What did your brand start with?

– After the institute, I opened my own parlor and then – a design studio. My team studied and grew up with me. Each time we set ourselves more and more complex tasks.

At that stage, we began to create our own collections and to participate in the fashion shows and prestigious exhibitions.

Can you give some advice from Aina Gassé to women that value the style and do not violate the rules?

– What is extremely important for a woman? To be in all situations unsurpassed, beautiful and worthy to be looked at. It is impossible without the right clothes aimed to create an ideal image even for an incomparable beauty. It’s known to everyone, but sometimes people do not follow the rules. In the wardrobe of each lady there must be basic things. Especially if she has frequent business trips and the status binds her to a business style. It is necessary to carefully select jackets, blouses, skirts, dresses and imperatively those ones that lawlessly suit and graze.

The clothes should be chosen, considering the type of the colour. And there are four of the types of the colour – for autumn, for winter, for spring and for summer. Thus you can create a perfect wardrobe.

The final result is so interesting and personal to everyone that it is impossible to imagine it otherwise.

Which rules are the main ones for you at work?
