Hripsime is 35 and she lives with her mum who was trying to take care of her throughout her life, and sometimes this care was too much for a young girl.
From her young ages Hripseme’s dream was to become a modeler, design extraordinary dresses and accessories and inspire people. Because of her poor eyesight her mother thought that sewing and dressmaking could harm her health. “Every time I wanted to sew a new dress or a tie, my mum was trying to prevent it and added that I should take care of myself”.
