– Who or what inspires your work?
My work is inspired by so many people and things. I can be inspired by a colour, or a book I’ve read, but the core inspiration to my designs is powerful women. Not necessarily the ones making the most noise, but the ones who hold power within them and share it with others.
– Favourite piece from your collection on MWHQ?
The Pedernal dress – countless women tell me it’s a staple in their wardrobe and easy to throw on in order to look instantly put together
– First thing your going to do post lockdown?
Go to a restaurant with friends. I really like Maison Francois which has recently opened and has delicious food and a lovely convivial atmosphere.
