Valenttina Carfagno: Now a days it’s just hanging out with friends, shopping.. Now that i design clothes i drove my shopping focus to hair and shoes… hehe and of course modeling…. It’s lots of fun for me. Scary sometimes… but fun
Maeve Kilara: When I visited your store, I was impressed by how well it was laid out. The feminine decor and the way that the garments were displayed created a very relaxed and classy atmosphere. What would you say has been your biggest source of inspiration in your designs?
Valenttina Carfagno: I have to say My biggest source of inspiration is RL, the people I see and their styles, movies, tv…. i like to see lots and lots of new things and come up with things… like a puzzle.
