Throughout all. Of my studies, at every holiday break I took part in a work experience, I worked in the fashion cupboard at Vogue through to the design rooms at Ally Capellino and Reiss, and for a luxury Italian cloth mill. I tried to immerse myself in all aspects to work out which area of fashion I loved most and I realised my heart lied within the realms of design and tailoring. Beautiful cloth has always and will always be my weakness, it makes my mind race, it makes me happy. When I find or develop a material I really love, I immediately imagine a silhouette, the image appears in my mind instantaneously. After I had this revelation, I went on to work in the industry as a designer and design manager and then worked as Head of Trend forecasting for Womenswear for M&S.
Soon enough, I began to really miss designing and I went on to create my own line, alongside my full-time job. I had collected vintage and vintage couture for years and started by creating a collection of 10 ultimate dresses, which embraced my love for luxury cloth and textiles. My line progressed from there. I took on a small shop/studio in Little Venice and made to order from my collection and vintage references. 15 years later, here I am in W1 with two boutiques and a little fashion army of an amazing team and a wonderfully loyal clientele of all age’s dynamics and nationalities. All with the same mission of looking beautiful and immaculately timeless be it day-to-day or for an event.
