„Clothing has always been important for me as I was a child. Being  a chubby girl myself beside chocolates I was only interested in how I could fill out a smaller part of the world by dressing up”

She seriously supports social responsibility, therefore had created a collection of animals where every sold piece supports an animal asylums. She plans to employ phisically challenged people for the production of her collections.


What she thinks of WAMP

„My experience is that a lot of people are just strolling on WAMP without daring to go up to designers because they would feel obliged to buy something. Our solution last time was to offer cookies to the audience and starting to talk them. We got smiles and buying in return.”

Linda Tóth and dotty are on WAMP from November 2008.
