What you were wear­ing

The Press - Zest - - Dress - As told to Harry Knight


My jacket is from Storm, the top is from Cue and my shirt is from Kim­ber­leys. I am quite in­ter­ested in fash­ion. I like to keep in­formed by read­ing mag­a­zines and spot­ting things I like. I am from Nel­son but have friends down here who have a busi­ness which sup­plies cloth­ing to fash­ion stores. If I time my trip well I get to pick out some of the ex­tras to add to my wardrobe. In fact I am just off to meet them now.


My pants are from a lit­tle bou­tique store in Blanke­nese in my home­town of Ham­burg, the shirt is from LaDage & Oelke, also in Ham­burg, and my cardi­gan is from Bloom. I am con­scious of trends and like to fol­low them but don’t spend too much time mak­ing sure I keep up with them. For me, cloth­ing needs to be sim­ple and easy to put on. I tend to go for a more clas­sic but ca­sual look.


My jacket is from a small bou­tique fash­ion store in Italy, the jeans are by Karen Walker, my top is from Port­mans and the bag was found in Ric­car­ton. I’m all about ca­sual streetwear. I take in­flu­ence from Euro­pean street style as I am orig­i­nally from that side of the globe but have been liv­ing here for 12 years. When I came over I brought about 80 per­cent of my wardrobe. I have picked up some ex­tra bits and pieces here but do most of my clothes shop­ping when I am over­seas. Favourite store is Century 21 in New York.


My shoes are from New Look, the shirt and skirt are both from Miss Sel­fridge, my bag is from Top Shop and the bracelets are from Etsy. I live in the United King­dom so all the clothes I am wear­ing are from shops at home. I re­ally like a typ­i­cal girly out­fit and also love the 50s look. So I look in vin­tage cloth­ing stores and tend to wear things like bows and flowery pat­terns with skirts.
