A les­son in loungewear

The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - SHE WEARS IT WELL -

Molly God­dard, 25

The Aus­tralian co-founder of the py­jama brand Des­mond & Dempsey wears hers all night – and all day.

1 If I have meet­ings with whole­salers, I’ll wear some­thing from Des­mond & Dempsey – in the sum­mer, the trousers with a camisole and a blazer – to show them the fit and the shape. But gen­er­ally I don’t tend to wear my py­ja­mas for work, and the pieces I do wear, I wash a lit­tle more gen­tly and never sleep in them.

2 I usu­ally put on a pair of big ear­rings be­cause I don’t tend to wear much make-up. Zoe Mor­ton does re­ally cool styles, as does the Aus­tralian brand Tilly Jew­ellery. I like sup­port­ing other young in­de­pen­dent la­bels.

3 I wear a lot of white and you’ll never see me in black. My aes­thetic is quite Aus­tralian. I in­cor­po­rate pat­terns and colour by mak­ing lit­tle neck­ties out of left­over sam­ple fab­ric.

4 I’ve got a wed­ding prac­ti­cally ev­ery week­end at the mo­ment, and I find that Aussie brands, like Zim­mer­mann, al­ways have great dresses for them.

5 I once saw a girl wearing our white pineap­ple-print shirt with white jeans and san­dals – and she looked amaz­ing. Peo­ple wear our py­ja­mas in to­tally dif­fer­ent ways.
