HOBBY HORSE

My week­ends are very busy as I have too many hob­bies and not enough time. It’s a prob­lem! I love to play the pi­ano (I made a ca­reer play­ing it for 10 years!) and the vi­o­lon­cello. I re­ally en­joy ski­ing (both alpine and wa­ter). I play golf too. I’ve loved fash­ion all my life. I re­mem­ber flick­ing through Vogue when I was eight, en­thralled by great pho­tos, editorials and mod­els. I loved Lau­ren Hut­ton and Jane Birkin, which is why my col­lec­tions have a 1970s in­flu­ence. Af­ter work­ing for 13 years as a tele­com en­gi­neer, I didn’t like what I was do­ing. So I de­cided to start de­sign­ing clothes for my daugh­ters and my­self. Soon my friends started ask­ing for my pieces. Cre­at­ing my own brand has al­ways been a dream, so I did it.
