1. Did your mum have anything to do with your love for fashion?
I think I have my mum to thank for introducing me to fashion. She would collect every edition of Vogue Paris, The Face, W Magazine and Vanity Fair. Trawling through these as a young girl let me transport to the other side of the world always inquisitive to what was going on in the fashion, music, and cinema world. mum was incredibly into fashion, introducing me to the greats such as Thierry Mugler, Calvin Klein, and Helmut Lang.
2. What is your proudest moment as a mum?
I think what I'm most proud of is how close my children are. They really are the best of friends.
3. What's the best parenting advice you've received?
Try to be as present as possible. Put down the phone and let the emails go unanswered. I try as hard as I can!
7. How did your style change when you became a mother?
When I became a mother, my style changed a lot. Having worn high heels for 20 years before becoming a mother and then running around after two little ones, I realised sometimes stilettos didn’t cut it. I became more at ease with my style, finally thinking about dressing for versatility and comfort as well as still staying chic. Thanks to the pandemic, the skill of creating comfortable yet stylish collections became easy and is accessible at Calexico. But don’t get me wrong; I love donning on a party frock and high heels for that special occasion! Lenny Grace, my 6-year-old daughter, usually chooses my accessories! It’s in her genes already!
