What’s a typical day like for you? There is no typical day anymore- every day is different!  I never know what challenge will come along that day on top of the things that I have to do already.

Where to start… there is always lot of sewing, cutting, finishing and packaging. You can never ignore the creative process that lights up like fire without the matches and you have to act on it no matter what…. it can be very distracting!

On an ongoing basis, I am maintaining Monikova’s online store and making sure my retailers have the product they need.  Photo shoots are important for new product – this is non-stop!  I also spend time searching for good materials,  figuring out my new steps for Pop-Up stores that I’ve been doing this year to promote my label and to find out what works and what doesn’t …. I can just carry on! Quite simply there is never dull moment!

What would you like to be remembered for? As always I would say being a good person that left some positive contribution behind and made good use of life.
