Tell us a little about you.
I’m an East London-based fashion stylist working with actors and musicians.
How do you start your day?
I don’t set an alarm now I have a toddler, it’s a much nicer way to wake up! She gets in bed and we have cuddles and mess around for about 30mins. It’s the best way to start the day.
What is your fashion philosophy?
Stick to what makes you feel good over following trends. A capsule wardrobe consisting of pieces that you LOVE wearing and repeatedly wear is much better for your mind and the planet.
Can you share your top tip?
Seeing as it’s summer I’d say my current tip is using a tinted sheer suncream on my legs when wearing dresses gives me that extra boost of confidence, it’s takes away and blue undertones and clears away blemishes.
How do you unwind?
Cooking. I love it. I find it’s like meditation for me, my mind completely clears and I just focus on the senses.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I’d love to see the pink sea in Columbia
Can you tell us something you discovered recently?
Haha the best sponge recipe:
220g salted butter
200g caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 tsp baking powder
200g of sieved flour
4tbsp of milk
Don’t use an electric whisk. Do it by hand so it’s super fluffy.
What is the best part of your work?
Working with inspirational people with buckets of talent.
Which shoes do you love this season?
I love the black suede Sabine flats. They’re so classic but also have the edge.
