Tell us a little about you.
I was born and raised in London but I went to a French school which surprises people - despite often being mistaken for Italian with my name. I work as a fashion stylist and live in East London.
How do you start your day?
With hot water and lemon and now a whole alphabet of vitamins - a new thing for me. If I can brave it, I go for run.
What is your fashion philosophy?
Wear what makes you feel good and suits your body shape, as opposed to following trends.

Can you share a styling trick with us?
My styling trick when I am fitting is my amazing tailor and her team. Those extra tweaks make all the difference. Buy things that fit well.
What and who inspires you?
I get inspiration from lots of things but mainly the people around me. My family and friends, my clients. I feel lucky to learn from them.

How do you unwind?
I’ve always loved being in water whether it’s a hot bath at the end of the day, being in the sea or swimming lengths in a pool.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?
The Galapagos Islands
Can you tell us something you discovered recently?
I discovered that an octopus has a very short life span - as little in 6 months in some cases sadly. I also discovered that I can cut hair, this was a lockdown discovery/emergency.
What is the best part of your job?
I feel very lucky to do a job I love. Of course, like anything it’s not without its challenges! I get a huge thrill from fitting a client in something they love and feel excited to wear, often for a momentous occasion. Dressing Sian Clifford for the Golden Globes in LA was a highlight earlier this year.

Which shoes do you love this season?
Malory and Willow for timeless classics and the Willow gold platforms are begging for a night out, we hope soon!
