WHAT IS YOUR...



  • Favourite shop?

All Saints.



  • Best bargain buy?

A black, chunky knit cardigan that was fully sequinned at the front, reduced from €115 to €27 in Topshop.



  • Biggest splurge?

A brown and green tweed suit by Fornarina for €250 in Spain. It had three-quarter length trousers and a cape jacket with ruffled bracelet sleeves and a pleat back.



  • Best and worst dressed style icons?

I love Scandinavian style, so for me the best is Swedish singer Lykke Li, and the Danish singer Oh Land. The worst is Katie Perry.



  • Favourite label or designer?

McQueen, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy, Alexander Wang and Acne.



  • Monthly spend on clothes?

Between €50 and €100.



  • Last fashion buy?

A brown and black, laddered fabric print top from Topshop that is short at the front and knee-length at the back.



  • Biggest fashion mistake?

Black patent, platform stilettos that were too high. If shoes are so high that you can't walk in them, they kill the outfit.



  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I love when people have no boundaries with their style and I hate social conventions that restrict individuality.
