What is your favourite piece in your wardrobe, why do you love it and where did you get it?
My Christian Louboutin heels. I made myself a promise that by the time I was 30 my business would be successful enough that I’d be buying my own Louboutins, so they’re that little bit extra special!
Who or what is your inspiration?
I love old movies, they definitely inspire my work.
If you could borrow anyone’s wardrobe (living or dead) who’s would it be?
Dita Von Teese - both her on stage and off stage wardrobe are just divine!
