We had the good fortune of connecting with Annabelle Azadé and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Annabelle, what makes you happy? Why?
Curiosity makes me happy. It is an innate skill, but I think it is also just like working out; you need to work on it. I think curiosity is what makes your life truly rich. It nurtures the mind, brings you hope and makes you realize how many different ways one can lead a life and find happiness along the way.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I believe that when you have the drive to do what you want, anything is possible. I started as a fashion journalist with zero contact, networked and worked hard. There is never competition when you know you can bring something new and fresh.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love nature spots in Los Angeles, they enable me to reboot and inspire from the nature. It is a crucial part when you want to stay faithful to sustainability!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate this section to all the beautiful artists and designers I have met in my life, people who make colors, textures, shapes vibrant but also designers and artists who give hope, share love and are turned towards the outside world to make our imagination richer and our mind feeling better.
