“As a Personal Shopper, I’m often racing against the clock to find my clients the perfect outfits for every event in their jam-packed diaries. There was one particular instance when a bespoke gown that my client had ordered for her son’s wedding got delayed, and I was tasked with finding her the perfect replacement in just two days. I’m proud to say I did, and she was thrilled. It’s because I go through these ups and downs with my clients that they’re more like close friends to me, and I know their tastes inside out.

“I’d describe my own look as simple, feminine and elegant. Audrey Hepburn is my eternal style icon. She inspires me to opt for understated but beautifully constructed pieces and focus on timeless silhouettes. I am especially meticulous when it comes to accessorizing. I invest in statement jewelry, watches and handbags to put a contemporary twist on my classic ready-to-wear collection each season.”

“The new LBD is all about letting your personality shine through in your look. There’s not one correct style – you could go body-con, casual, strapless… the options are endless. This flexibility also means that you can dress it up or down to work for any occasion. Cult brand Khaite’s new-season designs are ultra-flattering, and Charo Ruiz is also amazing – I love her signature lace detailing. I’ll be wearing my new LBD with a mini bag and mules for date night, and a denim jacket and tote bag for off-duty days.”


“When it comes to investment pieces, you can’t get much better than an heirloom watch. I think they look especially modern when worn with stacking bracelets. I’m a huge fan of styles by Cartier, Piaget and Jaeger-LeCoultre; however, at the top of my wish list is Vacheron Constantin’s ‘Egérie’ watch, thanks to its exquisite design, delicate detailing and interchangeable straps. It would be a dream come true to add this stunning timepiece to my wardrobe.”


“One of the things I love most about mules is their versatility. You can find a pair in any color or fabrication you could possibly want, meaning they’ll work with any look. A lot of designers have championed this style but, in my opinion, Manolo Blahnik’s ‘Maysale’ mules are beyond chic and make an enviable addition to any woman’s wardrobe.”
