_Interview to Toni Francesc

Where did you study and what did you like most about it?
I studied fashion design and patternmaking at the Institut Català de la Moda in Barcelona.
I liked the textile classes. They made me understand the importance of the fabrics in a design.

What did you not like about it?
I’m a very positive person, I don’t remember the bad moments.

And what did you and did you not like about Barcelona?
It’s impossible to have bad memories about Barcelona. I like everything about the city.
It’s not too big, it’s easy to walk through. I like its design, its architecture, the people, the
sea, the climate it has, the big amount of restaurants and bars. It’s a perfect city to live, study,
work or to visit.

When did you decide to become a fashion designer and why?
Right after I finished high school I started studying fashion. I was always interested in fashion,
art, architecture, interior design and I knew I wanted to study something in which I could express
myself creatively. Maybe the reason why I ended up studying fashion design has to do with genetics;
my mother is a dressmaker.
I’m very passionate about my work. It can be very stressful but I like that about it.

What do you do to get inspired and how do you usually start a collection?
I’ve always liked to work with human topics related to certain feelings. I can also get inspired by
themes related to the elements of nature. The inspiration I get from this often leads to the most
important aspects of the designs; the colours, fabrics, shape or style.

What are your plans for the future, what would you like to be doing in five years?
It’s hard to say what I will be doing in five years. I’d like to continue in fashion, which will probably
not always be easy in these times we live in. Anyway I’d like to continue working for my clients and
above all keep on enjoying what I’m doing.

If you wouldn’t be a designer, what would you be?
Being a fashion design teacher could be a great option. I wouldn’t be a designer, but I could continue
working with my passion for fashion and help preparing future designers.

What is the most ugly piece of clothes you have in your personal wardrope?
I don’t have any clothes that I really don’t like, although with some clothes I can get sick of seeing
them and wearing them.

What the most beautiful one?
An old jersey that I am really fond of.

And to finish; name a song you love but you’re ashamed of admitting to love.
“Yo soy aquel” de Raphael
