SEVEN for SEVEN with Laura Figueras
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.
Probably a singer. I always wanted to be on the stage, and i’ve got a great voice.
I’m proud to be running my own label Bambi by Laura, it’s not easy but all the effort is worth it.
I can’t tell you. But it’s bad.
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.
Fairies, politics, and people who tell me they have already paid…
The power of love. A force from above.
