She is quite un­stop­pable. Ask any woman who wears Re­becca Val­lance and they will tell you that they feel em­pow­ered by her clothes, with their light tailor­ing, gen­tle struc­tures and glam­our. She has per­fected this up­beat sig­na­ture since she started her busi­ness in 2011, when she in­tro­duced her col­lec­tion in Paris and was snapped up by Har­vey Ni­chols. Since then she has gone on to show reg­u­larly in New York and has re­cently be­come a best­seller on Net-A-Porter.com. She likes a cal­cu­lated risk: in fact, she thrives on it. Ev­ery sin­gle step, ev­ery but­ton, zip and look has been forged with her team, and de­spite the many busi­ness chal­lenges that face all de­sign­ers, she is un­daunted. She is on a roll. Mo­men­tum. Her home in Syd­ney is a buzzing re­flec­tion of all her loves: travel, beau­ti­ful things, lush flow­ers and at the cen­tre of it all her boy, Matthias, who at two years old is gor­geous, funny and in­quis­i­tive. She is about to give birth again, at the end of Fe­bru­ary, and doubt­less while she’ll be busy with that, she will also be work­ing on the next col­lec­tion. Bet­ter watch out: she will con­quer the world.

Re­becca Val­lance wears a cus­tom-made Re­becca Val­lance gown. Her son, Matthias, wears an Ar­mani Ju­nior shirt and shorts. Hat, stylist’s own.
