SIGNATURES:
“I love detail, especially some sort of embellishment that can transform a garment instantly. It’s always good to move out of your comfort zone each season, to learn new things and to challenge your senses.”IDEAL CLIENT: “She is a real individual and a keen follower of fashion. She maybe works in the industry or another creative field. Age doesn’t really concern me; I’m more interested in personality and the way a woman carries herself.”TRADEMARK PIECE: “I wouldn’t want to be known for doing one thing but the girls in the studio think it would have to be the neon collections.”
