What makes your life fashionable?
I style and plan events for a living and work with a lot of well-known fashion brands. Fashion and trends are very much embedded into my line of work and they are influential in shaping the creation behind a lot of our exciting and unique concepts. 

How does fashion influence your day-to-day life?
As a planner, I find inspiration in everything around me. When it comes to fashion, my biggest influence would have to be travel. I love diversifying my style after different travel experiences and being exposed to new cultures. I also dress according to work so my look could change a lot from one day to the next depending on the type of project we have on. 

How would you describe your statement style? 
It’s a mix between classic and edgy. My style is continuously evolving but my staple look would always include clean-cut outfits with touches of colour or statement pieces brought in, from shoes, bags or accessories! 

Who is your style icon?
Coco Chanel. 

Which celebrity’s style do you love the most? 
I love Olivia Palermo’s style – it’s always elegant and effortless. I also love Instagram wonder Man Repeller. She’s daring and fun! 

Which celebrity is constantly getting it wrong? 
Nicki Minaj is a disaster zone! 

Who is your fave designer?
I’m obsessed with Valentino and Peter Pilotto – the former for shoes and the latter for clothes! Oh, and I also drool over Kenzo! 

How do you dress for work?
Shorts, a white cropped shirt and an off-the-shoulder jacket – sneakers are always a must! 

How do you dress from day to night if you’re going straight to an event after work? 
I would wear leather trousers or a cute skirt paired with a shirt and fun sneakers for the day and then throw on a pair of heels and accessories to dress the outfit up for the night. 

What is your favourite store on the high street? 
Zara and H&M – they both come in at a tie! 

What is your favourite online fashion store? 
I’m not much of an online shopper but when I do get the urge, I like Net-a-Porter and ASOS.

What are you favourite trends for this season? 
Coming in at number one are sneakers, sneakers, sneakers! All colours and styles… I’m literally obsessed. In at two and three are denim and culottes! It’s clear that comfort is always key in my book! 

What’s the best piece of fashion advice you’ve ever been given?
Dress to reflect your character and to make yourself happy.

What are the items you are currently lusting after? 
A pair of Gianvito Rossi patent white and nude shoes and the KitKat clutch by Anya Hindmarch.
