Where were you born?
Welwyn Garden City.
Where do you live?
Which is your favourite London neighbourhood?
I love Marylebone. It has a villagey vibe even though it’s just minutes from Oxford Street. It has a farmers’ market on Sundays and hosts the most amazing butcher, The Ginger Pig, and fishmonger, FishWorks. Oh, and Marylebone Lane is full of little gems.
Tell us about your job and what you’ll be doing during Fashion Week.
Hairdresser: I will be working with various teams throughout the week on lots of different shows.
What do you like best about London style? How does it differ from other cities?
London is full of diversity, versatility and anonymity. You can wear almost anything and get away with it.
Which is your favourite Fashion Week restaurant?
The nearest sushi bar. If its Yo! Sushi I can’t get enough of the seaweed salad.
And your favourite Wi-Fi café for getting work done?Sketch is always an inspiring place.
Which show space do you like best?
Somerset House is a stunning venue.
Any advice for those attending London fashion week for the first time?
Big breakfast, comfortable shoes, umbrella, camera and safety pins!
Which is the most memorable fashion show you have ever attended?
Charlie Le Mindu changed my perception of hairdressing and fashion. He crossed the boundaries of both and made me realise that we don’t have to stay back stage.
Which are your favourite designers and brands?
Eton shirts are amazing quality. You must check out Sunday Girl’s collection for Firetrap; she actually used the hair extensions from my kit bag as the inspiration for the main print. I’m also really fond of Long Clothing’s recent collaboration with Boy London and can’t ignore The Kooples.
And your favourite London boutiques?
We recently set up a Boutique Bouffant Bar for Christian Louboutin as part of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out, which was a huge success. VV Rouleaux on Marylebone Lane is a haberdashery boutique which is full of ribbons and buttons, any fashionista’s dream. Flash Trash is an online jewellery boutique founded by Amber Atherton, you have to check this out.
Which is your favourite department store?
Where do you prefer to shop online?
Which is your favourite shopping city?
From working and living in Australia, I’ve retained a soft spot for Sydney. There’s a strong vintage scene, but it also offers a lot of choice for the more structured, smart items.
And your favourite international store?
Hmmm, I guess Zara would top it. They have a knack for translating the catwalk to the high street. I personally like the blazers and woolly jumpers.
What are your tips for surviving Fashion Week?
A good night’s sleep.
