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!

What’s the one thing you wouldn’t leave the house without doing?
Popping my earphones in my handbag. I can’t leave the house without them!

What’s your top tip for feeling confident?
Feel the fear and do it anyway!

What’s the last book you read?
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson. Its a really good read!

Misirlou by Dick Dale and His Del-Tones, along with most of the soundtrack to Pulp Fiction

What three things could you not live without?
Exercise. Music. Cuddles

What's your biggest achievement to date?
Running my own photography business for the past 8 years. Going freelance was one of the best decisions I ever made.

What do you still want to achieve before the end of the year?
I’ve got a few goals for this year, one of which is to start blogging more frequently. Another is to start work on publishing a book!
