what is your...



  • Favourite shop?

Allan & Suzi, a vintage store on Amsterdam Ave in New York.



  • Bargain buy?

A whopper sequin jacket for €20 on eBay. I call it my 'tropical slut' jacket. It's really bright and multicoloured.



  • Biggest splurge?

I'd rather not say the price but my most expensive would be a brown leather tote with a cross-body strap by Burberry Prorsum.



  • Best and worst dressed style icons?

The best is Nicki Minaj. The worst is Britney, but leave her alone.



  • Favourite label or designer?

Givenchy.



  • Monthly spend on clothes?

Over €200.



  • Last fashion buy?

A T-shirt by Christopher Shannon from Selfridges in London. It's made up of white, navy, yellow and pearl layered panels.



  • Biggest fashion mistake?

I was a Goth for two weeks when 'Frozen' came out.



  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I love how fashion gives people the opportunity to play dress-up every day and I hate how much things cost.
