Tell us about your workspace, what you like most about it, why it works for you:
I love to work in an open space environment. I have an open-door policy and my office where I spend my time sketching, researching and of course the business side of things – overlooks both the atelier and the showroom….
The flow of communication between the production and sales is important and having it all together in one location has worked well for the growth of the company.
Rules or words you live by…
“It’s not about the dress you wear, it’s about the life you lead in the dress.” – Diana Vreeland.
Any artists, musicians, writers etc who influence your practice?
Chopin! I am a classically trained pianist and music has always played an important part in my life. I often get inspired by melody and Chopin’s in particular, as you know is very romantic and translates well to designing wedding dresses!
