I N F O C U S Please tell us about your recent and upcoming projects. Most recently we did our first ever New York Fashion Week presentation, previewing our SS18 to press, friends and influencers in New York. I can’t really speak much about what is coming up but you will find out soon! What is a typical day like? At the moment, I am really into yoga at sunrise but it changes month to month. I love exercising in the morning, it gets the endorphins going so this is how I start my day. I am usually in the office at 9 a.m. and leave when the work is done. A typical day at the office will consist of meetings, brainstorm sessions, sampling, planning campaigns and shipping out orders. I am super hands on so there is no normal day. What will we find in your closet? Mochi, every piece from every collection and a lot of shoes! I often start with a pair of shoes before creating a collection – I visualise the pair of shoes I would wear with it. I am also a bit of a sneaker hoarder, so you will find lots of sneakers as well. Any fashion pet peeves? I hate try-hards. They actually drive me up the wall. You don’t have to always stick to the exact trend every season. Be yourself and be out the box. A style tip that you would like to share with our readers. Always wear lipstick and mix your basics with some fun elements. Also, a good pair of jeans is always the perfect accessory. 38 40
