What inspires you?
Everything beautiful, eccentric and colourful: prints, colour, art, texture, fabric, architecture, people and the unknown. When I’m not feeling inspired, I just sit there, look around and soon ideas will spark. Inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places.
Fashion Gone Rogue
If you were an icecream, what flavour would you be?
Night or day?
Night, but life would be dull without the wonderful sunlight wouldn’t it?
Chaos or order?
If you could do or be anything in the world what would it be?
I would be a Stylist and artist living in my Parisian apartment on the Champs-Élysées, travelling to Italy and New York on the weekends. In another life I’d be a cat or as Andy Warhol said “I think it would be very glamorous to be reincarnated as a great big ring on Liz Taylor’s finger”.
Anything else you’d like to add?
Many people have never understood fashion or art and perhaps never will. They are forms of creativity that are at times never meant to be understood. To those who love all forms of design, embrace creativity, immerse yourself in it and always continue to create.
