In fashion you're a tool for the job of another.
In my normal life I have so many insecurities.
Sometimes you are fighting for things you can't fight for.
However things that you did not even expect made you the happiest man in the world.
I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in that grand love which can change your life in five days. Maybe it is just because I'm too young, but I really hope to believe the same at the end of my days.
