What is your favourite piece from the new collection and why?

 I love the new Carrington black tailoring from the September drop. Sharp, sophisticated and easy to mix and match with the rest of the collection for multiple outfits. For that wow evening the Lutza gold pleated jumpsuit, very sexy but flattering and contemporary and lastly the Valentine Dress – a real red carpet statement, beautiful stretch satin to flatter and also add comfort, which is important to our customer.

How would you describe the Damsel in a dress woman?

 Sophisticated, individual, looking for something unique and exclusive, quality conscious, loves feminine shapes and colour.

What essential does every woman need in their wardrobe?

 Beautiful, good fitting pair of black trousers, you then have multiple outfits. Also some killer heels.

Describe your worst fashion moment?

 A pair of 1980s white cowboy boots with jewels on!!!

 What would be your top style tip?

 Wear the correct size bra! 30% of us don’t apparently. Less is always more.

 What is your favourite thing about Autumn/Winter?

 Love to layer up! Mixing different textures, like silks and cashmeres. Love mixing the different shades of autumn nudes and smoky greys.
