As 99% percent of the female population, I have my own body issues. I know exactly where my trouble spots are located: my legs could be longer and leaner, my ass could be smaller, my breast could be bigger etc. etc., but I can proudly say that I'm more or less satisfied with what I see in the mirror every day. To have that kind of attitude I had to boost my self-esteem and body confidence over the years. How did I do that? I became a runaholic and ... I met Miki. With his daily compliments and absolute veneration of my body (even my trouble spots!) he became the key to overcome my negative body image and taught me how to accept and love my body even without legs like Gisele Bündchen's and boobs like Kelly Brooke's. So without my pair of Nike and Miki I couldn't have done this post which - in my point of view - would have been a big loss as I couldn't have met Viktória Tisza, the person behind the Hungarian brand "Phaidra". If I had to describe her in one word, I would say 'determination'. She is the kind of person I would like to become one day. From one day to another she left everything behind and followed her dream and created "Phaidra". She had the guts to quit her well-paying job and throw herself into the risky Hungarian fashion industry. As every startup she encountered some difficulties at the beginning but seeing (and wearing) all the beauty she creates day by day I can surely say "Phaidra" is on the way to success.
