I always loved clothes from a very early age and when I discovered later in my life that you could make a career out of this passion it was an easy decision to make! It has never felt like work to me. I’m very blessed in that sense.
Styling Beyoncé for a Marie Claire Cover - the experience of a lifetime.
Be prepared to start at the bottom, keep your head down, work hard and look and learn. It takes time to build a reputation in the fashion industry, and there’s no quick-fix for getting there.
Keep it simple. Don’t copy what looks good on somebody else as it might not work on you. Find your own style and stick to it!
The Olivia Dress that I am wearing in these pictures. It’s so easy and I love the sleeve length and neckline. I will wear it in the city with trainers or Venetian flat velvet slippers and Flip Flops when it’s very hot.
