5 Tell us why the Fellowship has been an important part of your career and what you enjoy most about being part of the organization.
The Fellowship has underpinned my professional development from Day One. Today, I enjoy being part of one of the biggest creative forums in the world allowing individual growth, particularly our younger generation.
6 What is your favorite collection you have produced and why? What was your inspiration behind it?
The Royal Collection – The inspiration behind this collection was to depict how important the royal dynasty is in ensuring continuity through society changes in the year of the Queens Jubilee. It shows how consistent standards can be delivered through the generations, as the younger family members grow into their own roles. It’s my favourite collection because it is the one that people talked about most. Working with Angels of London styling, it created a completely authentic era representation.
7 What do you still want to achieve/accomplish as an artist?
A brand legacy of integrity linked to products and education.
8 If you hadn’t become a stylist, what other career path would you have taken?
9 Salty or Sweet? What is your junk food guilty pleasure?
Sweet – Burger King.
