We caught up with designer Agnė Kuzmickaitė during London Fashion Week to discuss her AW20 collection.
Tomi: What would you say is the main inspiration behind your collection?
Agne: The main idea is I want to invite people to find inspiration every day to find joy and to be happy. Actually now at times, compared with other times, we have a lot of things to be happy about and a lot of possibilities and sometimes I notice in the news and everywhere, ideas that some apocalypse will happen soon and I want everyone to find a way to be happy in spite of anything.
T: Describe the collection in three words.
A: No, that’s hard. Yeah. Some people ask me and you know, I always say that ‘I love butterflies’.
T: Do you have a favorite butterfly?
A: Well, I like all butterflies but when talking about my brand, I usually use a black butterfly.
T: When you get a chance to pause and relax, what do you like to do for self-care?
A: You know, I like to sleep [laughs]. It’s always important for me to have a time to sleep because then you have a better mood and you look better.
T: Are there other mediums of art that you like to create in?
A: Yeah, actually I work a lot of with the theater, I create costumes for theater. I get inspired by different art and I think fashion is very connected with different arts as well.
T: Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
A: No, I don’t but I like to travel in general. l like one spot in my home country Lithuania near the sea.
