WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK WITH A FULL TEAM OF WOMEN?

I love it! The strong bonds I share with my colleagues make coming to work a pure joy. I'm incredibly grateful to be surrounded by supportive and collaborative people - the fact that they're all women is a huge bonus.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

Something I have read recently: "every element of our world, even the tiniest crystal of snow, matters somehow. We each have a place in the glorious pattern."

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MANTRA? 

Nothing is more fulfilling than a meaningful job well done!

WHO DID INSPIRE YOU THE MOST WHEN GROWING UP?

My mother. Theres not enough words to describe how amazing she is - she's instilled the most amazing values in my siblings and I and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful and strong female in my life. 

 

WHAT IS THE MANTRA YOU SWEAR BY?

Enjoy every moment as you never know if its going to be your last.

WHOS HAS BEEN THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMAN IN YOUR LIFE?

Marina Ralph. My best pal. We’re both from the same little seaside town, and we bonded over her Batman wallet aged 17.

  She’s incredibly creative, stylish, caring and completely selfless. Marina is a prop/puppet maker, who’s worked on Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs along with many other feature films. Her attention to detail is amazing!

  We’ve had so many adventures, living in Berlin together, spending time in NYC, and no matter what, she is always a little ray of sunshine.

  She inspires me daily.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTE?

 “Tomorrow you will wake up and be bright eyed and bushy tailed!” - My grandma instilled this in all of us growing up and I live by it!

      I love the concept of the present, each day is a new one full of possibilities, never knowing quite where the day will lead - and also a constant reset.

WHO HAS BEEN THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE?

My grandmother, a tiny woman with big ideas, kind, opinionated and funny as hell. I always say that my love of fashion comes from her, even though she never really cared about the way she dressed. She just has an effortless elegance, which I can only hope to emulate one day.

 

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?  

Something I keep telling myself: you can do this, you are good enough!
