Q&A

Simply You Style - - Safari Chic -

What does your job en­tail?

Anna: I am a free­lance fash­ion stylist and au­thor based in Auck­land, and I love to pro­mote wool in fash­ion. Is­abella: I’m a brand man­ager at Ruby in Auck­land. I look after the mar­ket­ing, PR and com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

How would you de­scribe your per­sonal style?

A: Re­laxed tai­lor­ing, clean lines, un­fussy, but aware of cur­rent trends. I: Clean, clas­sic and con­fi­dent. I’m a pants and shirt girl, but I also like cloth­ing with great tai­lor­ing and a bit of edge.

What are your rules when it comes to fash­ion?

A: Wear what suits you. This in­cludes body shape, per­son­al­ity and life­style. To wear your clothes with con­fi­dence, these el­e­ments should be seam­less. I: Have your own per­sonal style and know what suits your body. Don’t try and repli­cate too many peo­ple’s looks, just rock you.

What are your go-to brands?

A: Ge­or­gia Alice, Liam, Har­man Gru­biša, Work­shop, Zambesi and Hail­wood. I: Ruby and Liam. I have al­ways been a Ruby girl. I also ab­so­lutely love Ge­or­gia Alice and Zoe & Mor­gan.

What piece of style ad­vice have you tried to teach one another?

I: To draw in­spi­ra­tion from de­sign­ers. How­ever, this doesn’t mean you have to pur­chase de­signer cloth­ing. Be clever with your shop­ping. A: In­vest in qual­ity, and think about in­vest­ment pieces overnight be­fore you pur­chase.

Do you ever share clothes?

I: Yes, we al­ways share shirts, jumpers, jew­ellery and shoes. Most re­cently, I have got into Mum’s old Ch­eryl Vuiller­min pieces from the 90s.
