Can you tell us about your journey to become a stylist?
It definitely started as a child. I was constantly arranging my room, planning how things should look, what their place was in a room, what colour should things be.
I grew up in a family of TV Producers and Directors, so sets and crews were familiar territory for me. It was all instinctual in a way... it had been around me my whole life.
I offered to help on a magazine while studying Design. In my final year it became an intensive 3-days-a-week of completely immersing myself and I ended up having to finish my course by correspondence after being offered a job as a Market Editor. The job was a whirlwind career where I grew quickly to Fashion Editor and then Fashion Director. There was no secret... It was nothing but focus and hard work.
I never thought I would have a creative career as such - maybe a Director, following in my Father’s steps, but I never envisaged or imagined a design career as creative as the one I have now could exist. It’s incredibly expressive and fulfilling.
What (or who) inspires you?
Living a fulfilling and balanced life drives and inspires me, and I am always motivated by growing and developing my own creative possibilities.
I am inspired by the delicate aesthetics of Axel Vervoordt, the clean lined minimalism of John Pawson, and the simple motivation to be a good person in the world.
My travels have inspired me - certain journeys like my travels to Tibet and India have stayed with me and give me constant perspective.
Every day I challenge myself to do better than yesterday. That inspires me to keep growing.
