What inspires you?
My customers, my grandmothers and my gorgeous friends. The fashion week circuit is always an inspirational experience, people with great style everywhere you look and being able to meet the talented designers behind the brands we sell is an honour.
Describe your personal style and how it influences your brand?
I like to mix luxurious classics with fun feminine pieces, such as a crisp white shirt with a cute skirt, a midi heel and a red lip to finish the look. This is reflected through my buying for Muse.
Rebecca Taylor Blouse, L’agence Denim Shorts, Tibi Slides, Celine Audrey Sunglasses.
What is your all-time favourite purchase?
My chocolate coloured Chanel bag from the 1970’s. It’s classic and delicious.
What wardrobe item should every woman invest in?
A midi heel; glam for the day and comfortable for a night out. I just invested in these Tibis! They’re amazing.
Do you have a style rule you always obey?
I never wear anything I don’t feel comfortable in. I wear pieces that flatter my body shape, as opposed to falling into trends that just don’t suit!
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
Meeting DVF herself was pretty amazing! But I would say it would be the relationships I’ve formed with all my amazing customers. It makes my day when they leave the store with something they feel incredible in.
What can’t you live without?
My partner Nick, he’s such a rock in my life and is constantly helping me through all the stresses of running a small business. My parents and friends, they make everything worthwhile.
