Marios Schwab hates trends.

The acclaimed designer prefers to see people putting their own twist on fashion, rather than just what is popular with others.

He said: ''I generally find 'trends' extremely unimaginative and I particularly don't like fake suspender stockings and photographic prints.

''My best advice would be read fashion, not just dress the look, I like women who shape their own imagination around what fashion is, especially when there is so little individuality nowadays.''

Marios loves his work and is particularly happy when he gets to showcase his collections on the catwalk as he thinks it gets people ''excited''.

Asked for his ambitions for the future, he told GraziaDaily: ''Continue to travel with the collection to new and existing territories to put on catwalk shows. What better way for people to become excited about the brand than to see it in motion in front of them on a catwalk?''

And the designer also revealed plans to expand his offerings further to better cater for VIP clients.

He said: ''Marios Schwab pieces are so well requested for VIP dressing that we are planning to expand our made to measure and private client dressing over the coming seasons as well as expand our evening wear offer.''
