What do you love most about your job?
Being a stylist is like playing dress up so it’s a dream extension of all my childhood dreams - and I get paid for it! The thing that drives me is creating narratives through the shoots I style. Watching the model inhabit a character that I’ve been dreaming up and telling a story through the medium of clothes is the most satisfying element of my job.
Where's your favourite hangout?
In our house there is a space we call the nook - a cosy, comfy panelled seating area off the kitchen. I love cosying up there with a cup of tea, perhaps to hear my daughter read, catching up on a pile of magazines or having friends round for cake. It’s also my preferred spot for a nap if I ever get the chance!
What's top of your playlist right now?
Real Truth by J-E-T-S. In my car, in the kitchen, definitely on the dancefloor.
What's your most loved piece in your wardrobe?
Right now, I think it would be a grey cashmere crew neck jumper from Land’s End which succumbed to moths this summer. But the cashmere is such good quality and so thick I didn’t want to chuck it so I mended it, sewing up all the holes. It was a labour of love and every time I’ve worn it I’m reminded how much we need to connect with our possessions and treasure them.
