SEVEN for SEVEN with Laura Figueras

  • What is fashion for?

Fashion tells people who you are, and who you want to be…. It’s the ultimate form of self expression. And it keeps you warm on cold winter days.

  • If you were not a fashion designer, what would you be?

Probably a singer. I always wanted to be on the stage, and i’ve got a great voice.

  • What are you proud of ?

I’m proud to be running my own label Bambi by Laura, it’s not easy but all the effort is worth it.

  • What are you ashamed of?

I can’t tell you. But it’s bad.

  • If you could keep just one garment or accessory, which one would you pick?

Ooh, that’s difficult. I think it would have to be the ring that my boyfriend gave me to propose with. It’s a children’s ring, it costs around 2euros I think… and I love it.

  • What do you no longer believe in?

Fairies, politics, and people who tell me they have already paid…

  • What do you still believe in?

The power of love. A force from above.
