Q: HARDEST LESSON YOU LEARNED IN BUSINESS?
I think one of the hardest lessons I have learned so far that “networking” is important and not a dirty word. When I first started in London, I believed that my work ethic and merit would speak for itself but if you don’t get out there and meet people, how will anyone ever know who you are, what you do and what you are made of?
Q: THREE THINGS THAT DEFINE YOUR BUSINESS?
For me exceptional customer service is paramount and I love to help people. Working closely and intimately to make people feel happy, confident and beautiful through their personal image is the best job I could have.
The second is personalized. We are all so different so why should any of us look, dress or act like anyone else? I am all about taking inspiration from fabulous style muses, studying it, learning it and making it suit the client.
The third is fun! Style and fashion can be intelligent, sophisticated, chic and fun! Life is too short to be so serious.
Q: FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?
The Conran Shop, Brompton Cross. To slow the little tornado of fashion ideas that are constantly twirling in my head I love to visit this beautiful store with their fantastic products and embrace another visceral experience and inspiration to help me switch gears and slow down. Interiors are just as creative, dynamic and interesting as fashion.
Q: WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?
The most inspiring woman I have ever had the pleasure to meet would be Angela Ahrendts while I worked at Burberry. Her ability to create a vision and strategy while connecting in an intimate and inspirational way with a huge staff was really impactful. She is grounded and strong, yet sensitive, creative and full of life. She is a wonderful role model!
Q: A QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
