DID YOU ALWAYS KNOW YOU WANTED TO BE A DESIGNER?
Yes, from about the age of 12 after I stopped wanting to be a fairy.
I got an art scholarship to my senior school with a fashion collection. I made my own fabric, a batik fish print that I applied to a fish hat, which opened on the head. I think that was probably the start of it!
WHAT GETS YOU OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING?
Lots of coffee. I try to go to the gym every morning at 8am, that gets me out of bed and in a good frame of mind for the rest of the day. It’s gym one day, yoga the other.
WHAT’S YOUR WARDROBE STRATEGY?
This is a difficult question, because I should have a really good answer for it! It’ll always be occasion appropriate, if I know I’m going to a really important meeting, I’ll need to dress the part, which makes you feel the part.
And if you’re really hungover, dressing well is a good way to hide it…
I have always had the secret ambition of wanting to be a Bond girl…
WHAT’S DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE?
I’ll come back from the gym, have some food, and make my way to our new office—which is great, I actually feel like I’m coming home at night, rather than having been at home all day and wanting to go out.
Every day is different, that’s why I love doing what I do. You never know what’s going to happen.
