What you were wear­ing . . . as told to Harry Knight.

The Press - Zest - - Fashion -

My jacket is from For­ever New and my Shakuhachi dress is from Zip Me Up, here in The Colombo. Most of my in­flu­ences come from Zip Me Up, which is where I work. I like it be­cause it stocks a lot of New Zealand and Aus­tralian de­sign­ers. I al­ways make sure what I wear is com­fort­able; I like loose, and also colour­ful ev­ery now and then. My boots are from Mi Piaci. I re­ally like look­ing for things with a point of dif­fer­ence. I don’t like mass­mar­ket stuff. I find the eas­i­est way to find unique stuff is by shop­ping over­seas, which is where most of my clothes are from. I bought my boots in Rome and my True Re­li­gion jeans in Bali. My jacket is from Aus­tralia and the shirt is a hand-me-down. I like vin­tage, mod­ern, old and new clothes, but I love be­ing able to mash them all to­gether. My coat was made by my nana for mymum when she was my age and Mum­made me this skirt. I much pre­fer skirts or dresses over jeans. My glasses are from Groovy Glasses and my boots are from An­drea Biani.

My coat is from Dickins & Jones in Lon­don and my trousers and top are from Ez­ibuy. My main in­flu­ence is the clas­sic style, which I like be­cause you can keep wear­ing it for years. I have had this coat for 20 years and I can still happily wear it to­day. I like adding some­thing that’s a bit bright and colour­ful among the plainer clas­si­cal clothes and I also think it’s im­por­tant to dress for oth­ers and not for your­self. Af­ter all they have to look at you! My scarf is from Red Cur­rent and my boots are from Moda Bella.
