-How did the opportunity arise?
—The opportunity came very unexpectedly, as I actually received a call from a stylist in London for a music video for singer FKA twigs, where he asked me for several of the pieces I had posted on my Instagram. I placed the order he placed for me and shipped it, but there was a delay in the shipping flight and it didn’t arrive on time, so he asked if he could leave the pieces for other projects he had in the next few weeks. This is how her work with Kylie came out, where he showed her my pieces and she was very attracted to her. So he wanted to use them for her new video.
—What was the inspiration for the disco theme?
—Actually they were the ones who took my design style and made the disco theme fit with the styling. I think that in the end it fitted very well because of the color and the dynamism of the garments.
“How long did it take you?”
—I had two days to make it and send it. In general, I have to do everything very quickly to get it out of Costa Rica and to get it abroad.
—What did the production tell you about your work?
—They are very happy with the result and possibly more works with other artists will come, so we will keep in touch.
“What does Kylie mean to you?”
—For me she is a music icon that I grew up with, I have been a big fan of her music for many years and I never imagined I could get to wear her one day. It was quite a surprise and I think she has been the highest level artist I have ever worked with.
—What did this experience teach you?
—That many times, when an opportunity is lost, a new one arises. At first I felt a little sad that the pieces had not arrived on time for the singer that were planned, but realizing that they were used for Kylie and they fit perfectly on her motivated me to think that better things always come.
