He was not just a talented designer but an also properly educated one, he had a Masters Degree in fashion designing.

In his personal life, he was openly gay. He loved his dogs and cats and left so much for them in his will. He was also a Scuba driver and this served as a source of inspiration for his designs including the 2010 "Plato Atlantis".
