Who are you?
I am English and having studied fashion in the UK. I moved to Paris 15 years ago. I am a fashion designer first and formost but fashion doesn't stop there and I am also a stylist and trends consultant, illustrator and textiles designer.
What are you inspired by?
I am inspired by people who think differently and who make new things happen despite the pitfalls of these untrodden paths. I recently met with Sébastien Kopf from the label Veja, a visionary in his domain. He has bought the issues of sustainability in fashion to the foreground, so for his work for ethical and sustainable fashion with his brand Veja and his Paris concept store "Centre Commercial". He is my inspiration today.
