The three essential things a woman should know about style are...

Please describe your style in three words.

Less is more.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Overthinking it.

Do you believe in role models?

Yes, my mother. No matter what she’s been through, she always has a positive outlook on life.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Cashmere and crisp cottons.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

Too much of the same with the same. Actually, too much of anything.

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?


What are the rules in the way you dress?

Knowing your body and wearing what you wear with confidence.

Celebrities and style...

Don’t always go together.
