"A$AP Rocky has followed and supported me for about two years". - tells Astrid Andersen. "He is super cute. We have the same dedicated approach to each of our subjects, so respect goes both ways and it is a good starting point for talking together". 
 

The support and recognition that Astrid gets from a huge idol like A$AP is what  makes her keep designing and keep being innovative within the fashion scene.
