6.30AM My alarm’s the clas­sic ver­sion from the iPhone, but I al­most never use it be­cause I wake up nat­u­rally. I’m def­i­nitely not a light sleeper—I can doze off dur­ing a con­cert! 6.35AM It is straight to the bath for me. I usu­ally take 30 min­utes to get ready. My ap­proach to per­sonal style is: Don’t over­think it. What I wear to work re­ally de­pends on the first thing I grab from my wardrobe. Oth­er­wise, my go-to uni­form is a T-shirt, chi­nos, and sneak­ers. I’m not some­one who wears my emo­tion on my sleeves, but if I’m a lit­tle down, I wear more black. My favourite scent to wear to work is Fred­eric Malle’s Por­trait of a Lady. I know the name’s not great, but the smell is mem­o­rable. I’ve been loyal to this brand for a few years now. 7.15AM I don’t like to have any­thing for break­fast. I can’t eat any­thing un­til lunchtime. I also try to leave my house no later than this tim­ing to skip rush hour be­cause the jour­ney to the of­fice can take me any­thing from 20 min­utes to an hour. I’ve been liv­ing in Lon­don’s Is­ling­ton dis­trict for a few years now, and I like it be­cause I have ev­ery­thing I need a few blocks away—friends in­cluded. 7.32AM I usu­ally call my dad or friends to catch up dur­ing the com­mute to work. I some­times just look out of the taxi and take in the scenery. The city’s em­bank­ment pro­vides quite a view en route, too. 7.45AM Cof­fee, for­ever! I have a few cof­fees as soon as I reach the of­fice. 8AM My of­fice has floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows, so it’s like a fish bowl in the sky. I love that is has amaz­ing light. I’ve filled it with ev­ery­thing I love, such as books, toys, pic­tures, and mood boards. I like spend­ing time in it, so I guess that’s a good sign? I also blast pump­ing loud mu­sic when I work, which is prob­a­bly an­noy­ing for the rest of the peo­ple in the of­fice. I’m al­ways ready for a lit­tle dance! 10AM I find my­self most pro­duc­tive ei­ther early in the morn­ing or late at night. I’ve learned a lot from my past ex­pe­ri­ences at var­i­ous fash­ion houses be­fore the move to Bally. After all, when you start work­ing at a young age, you’re ab­sorb­ing ev­ery­thing like a sponge. When I joined Bally in 2014, I was to­tally amazed by the vast amount of women’s shoes we have in our archives. There are more than 34,000 pairs!
