FOR THE FIRST INTERVIEW IN OUR NEW SERIES OF LEADERS BEHIND THE SCENES I ASKED MY BIGGEST FASHION INSPIRATION, A DANISH POWER WOMAN, MOM BOSS AND BEAUTY LOVER ANINE BING TO ANSWER FEW QUESTIONS SO YOU COULD GET TO KNOW HER TOO.
She is an endless inspiration, running her own powerhouse, and completely changing the way we do fashion. Anine is known for her effortless, classic, rock & roll pieces (seriously, sometimes I feel like she is designing every piece with me in mind) and with stores all over the world like Paris, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Berlin, Miami, Sydney, London and New York she has really set her footprint on todays modern fashion. I mean half of my closet is labeled Anine Bing as she creates pieces you can mix and match from a typical work wear to a night out with the girls to a cosy family time at home.
