MY WORLD...

“Some may think that my life re­volves around fash­ion, but I have other in­ter­ests too. I ab­so­lutely love to read. Although, come to think of it, I do read a lot of bi­ogra­phies on fash­ion de­sign­ers, and I have a huge col­lec­tion of books on the his­tory of fash­ion… so on sec­ond thought, my life is sur­rounded by all things fash­ion!

I’m a bit of a homebody. Be­ing in my house with my hus­band and cats, bak­ing or do­ing DIY, is how I like to spend my free time. We watch a lot of films, my favourite be­ing The Age Of In­no­cence – the beau­ti­ful cos­tumes and cin­e­matog­ra­phy cap­ti­vate me ev­ery time. If I could choose a film star to wear my gowns, it’d be the beau­ti­ful Keira Knight­ley. She bridges that gap be­tween old-world charm and mod­ern glam­our. I love ev­ery part of my job, down to nam­ing the gowns. I look at a dress and then pair it with who­ever it re­minds me of, of­ten a char­ac­ter from a book or movie, a client or some­one I know. It’s such a lovely prac­tice. This last year has seen a grow­ing move away from very tra­di­tion­ally de­signed gowns to ones that take their in­spi­ra­tion from high fash­ion. Brides are re­al­is­ing that their wed­ding is an op­por­tu­nity to make a state­ment. I love the ex­cite­ment of the bridal fash­ion world!
