Lucky for me, I get to bring my darling cavapoo, Thatcher, to work each day. I find solace in our daily walks, not only do they keep me balanced but it forces me to get out of the office and see some of the most incredible street style. Here I am walking down West Broadway in the red Imelda dress. I love this dress because the silhouette is fun and carefree, I call this my party dress because I know I will always have a good time in it.
I was raised in London, where I was inspired by traditional Savile Row bespoke tailors (I love classic menswear!). When I design a collection, creating an impeccable fit has always been my first priority. In this fitting, I wore my ivory silk georgette blouse with black French lace detailing. I adore French lace and tend to use it in each collection. For Fall 2012, I combined the lace with this classic menswear blouse, to give it a feminine balance. Pair with a wide leg trouser to complete the look!
Each morning I try to go to Olives, they make a great English breakfast tea and I adore the staff. I love sitting outside talking in the fresh air and catching up on my daily news. This black wool fur vest is my go-to for fall. It is a great transitional piece that can easily be paired with a knit or kept simple with a bare arm.
After a long day full of appointments with buyers, fabric distributors and pattern makers, I was able to return to the showroom and carve out some well-needed design time for my upcoming Fall 2013 collection. One of my favorite parts about designing is it allows me to be imaginative and tell a story. Here, I am pictured wearing the navy double georgette shirtdress with black French lace, I love wearing this dress because it takes me from day to night. This evening, I plan on wearing this dress to dinner out with friends.
