spring resolutions

There’s something undeniably magical about spring. Not least because of the fresh start it offers, despite falling into the last third of the year… I have long believed that I suffer from a touch of undiagnosed OCD, which, if you ask my long-suffering husband, basically means that I am a bit of a pain to live with – straightening picture frames at all hours, puffing cushions as soon as he gets off the chair and worse… One of my less intrusive habits is an obsession with list-making of epic proportions – to illustrate, and complete my confession: I have a list listing my lists. And as all compulsive list-makers (and there are many of us) will agree, the queen of all lists is of the dreaded New Year’s resolutions kind. Whether you pledged…

urban sophistication

What environment captures your creativity best? A creative environment that values curiosity and an open mind above all else. Fashion has this fascinating power to express personality, even the culture of the times, so everyone needs to be attuned to that to remain relevant. That means having a voracious appetite for art, architecture, music and history, and being aware of your surroundings whenever travelling – be it around the world or on your commute from home to work. In a creative environment, you need to be respectful of everyone else’s opinions and experiences, and above all, be kind. You get a lot more done when you’re genuinely nice to people, and we’re all much happier for it. What is your personal style and does the collection reflect your fashion aesthetic? I’m a minimalist…
