He worked with Harper’s Bazaar magazine until he founded his own website, Hey Woman. Maxim talks about the experience of motherhood along with the challenges of her profession.
What did you want to be when you grew up? Ever wanted to work in fashion?
I was always a dreamer. One day I wanted to be a ballerina cousin and the next to live in Arizona among wild horses. In short, it was never realistic. I just wanted to dream big! And when I realized that clothes can transform us and take us to new places, I knew that the fashion world was where I wanted to work.
He left Harper’s Bazaar magazine and founded his website. How did you feel this change?
I left the magazine a year and a half ago. The difference was huge. The Harper’s Bazaar was an imposing name, recognized all over the world, and with so much history. Hey woman! It is a start-up with a small team.
