What do you like most about your professional activity?

"I really like the duality of this sector. These are two worlds that we have long believed to be irreconcilable, but which have proven us the opposite, particularly with social networks and e-commerce. Technology is disrupting habits and helps to meet many challenges in the sector, and I find it exciting to participate in it. On a more personal level, I have always loved fashion and the creativity that emanates from it. However, I also have a very Cartesian and analytical side. , and this job allows me to combine the two."
