EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW Mum-of-one Alesha Dixon tells No.1' s Rosie how
It’s easy to forget that Alesha has been in showbiz for over 17 years. From performing in girl group Mis-teeq, to a solo career, winning Strictly Come Dancing, becoming a judge on the show, then jumping ship to be a long-standing judge on Britain’s Got Talent, the star has certainly experienced it all. No.1’ s Rosie chatted to Alesha at the Scottish Fashion Awards to hear all about her clothing line and her career as a performer...
Hi Alesha! How did it feel to be at the Scottish Fashion Awards celebrating all things Scottish style? You know, I love fashion and everything that comes with it so it’s fabulous to be here and meet with so many talented people. I think sometimes it can go unnoticed, you know, how much effort actually goes into creating the beautiful outfits we get the opportunity to wear. So it’s lovely that we can recognise and celebrate people within the fashion industry.
What do you love most about fashion? I think it would have to be, getting the chance to really express yourself. No matter who you are, what you do, you can often tell a lot about a person by what they are wearing – which I think is amazing. As a woman, I also just love the girly, feminine aspect that fashion brings. It’s a great bonding subject for my daughter and I too, so that’s always nice.
Do you give your daughter fashion advice? Well, she’s a bit young to properly take in any of my advice but of course I’ll try! She’s funny though, like most kids probably are – she knows what she wants to wear most of the time, so sometimes it’s a struggle trying to change her mind!
Alesha says her daughter, Azura, is interested in singing, dancing and fashion, just like mummy.
