Interview with Fashion Designer Berny Martin

Hi There..... Are you a fan of my Fashion Designer interviews? Would you like to learn more about what they do, and why they started making garments?

I have always been interested in finding out more about fashion designers. Not sure why, maybe because I occasionally make my own garments. Yes, I am very renowned for my skills. I bet you didn't know that about me. Of course, you didn't because it's not true. 😜

Well, I admit the clothing I make isn't always perfect. Sometimes, a piece ends up in my closet for a while, because I don't want to let it get to waste, but after a while, it ends up in the bin, anyway. 😏

If there would have been a possibility for me to study fashion when I was young, who knows what I would have been capable of, or where I would be right now? At home, most likely. 😁

Then again, if I could have had the choice between fashion and art, or performing arts, I am not sure which one I would have picked. 😯

Instead, I ended up having a degree in science. Isn't that the worst combination ever? 😬

No, it's not. You can find on Scientific American's website, they are more alike than different, so who dares to say I can't be creative? I can, and there is nothing you can do about it. 😎

Ok, I have kept you waiting long enough. Who is the star on my blog today? His name is Berny Martin, he is 45, and the fashion designer at Catou. 😊

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

I design clothes or garments for individuals and companies 

What made you decide to become a Fashion Designer?

I would like to think that I was born that way or wired that way, but yet again, I really enjoy the process of designing clothes.

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Fashion is important to me because it is a creative medium that I found can connect positively with people of all ages, races, genders, political beliefs, and classes.

What are your successes, and how did you achieve them?

Dressing celebrities, I put my garments in a showroom in New York and a stylist came to select my garments for their celebrity clients to wear.
showing my fashion around the world, I partnered with a lot of international production companies all over the world so that they can use my fashion in their production. 

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

Yes, a garment brand name is important to me because it tells me a story. It shows me the care and the longevity of the company and how long they are or have been making their products. It is important to communicate with your garment your life purpose because it shows and tells a story about yourself.

Describe your personal style of clothing?

Comfort and intentional because I wear things so that I can create a sense of communication between me and the people that I am going to meet and share my story.

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I found my personal style when I discovered myself on a trip to the continent of Africa. It was one of the most uplifting experiences in my life. I learned the color balance and how to manipulate colors with fabrics of all sorts. My signature look is the scarf or I should say a Vevelle scarf.

Do you have an influence on other people’s clothing style?

Yes, I usually allow my clients to find their inner childhood of clothing, which ultimately brings to them the joy of wearing a specific garment.

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

The oversize jacket or trench coat.

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

Wearing too many accessories with a suit. For me, a suit is classic and a person should let the suit define them instead of them defining the suit with way too many accessories.

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Wear something that makes you feel comfortable, and that doesn’t make you think about impressing anyone, or yourself. Enjoy the moment of finding things that make you feel good about yourself and tell a story about you.

Who is your style icon and why?

Yves St Laurent - He changed the way people think about fashion and why they should dress more with elegance instead of just class.

Is there something else you would like to share with us?

Fashion is universal, and it is through culture and influence, and interaction with other cultures we learn our sense of fashion.  

Thank you, Berny, for answering my questions. I think you have some delightful pieces in your spring collection. 😍
