I was born in Latvia, and my father, he was
a car mechanic, used to take me to his work and there was a pile of fabric scraps there,
probably left overs from the factory. I used to just sit in a pile of this fabric
and play with little swatches and little pieces of fabrics and I remember I got so excited
about finding pieces of lace, or pieces of jersey, and then I would just bring them home
and create little garments for my dolls. Probably that was the moment when I got hooked.
