My day always starts at the crack of dawn with a long walk for my gorgeous black Labrador Rula, and a very healthy cup of Oolong green tea.
Once in the office, I cover the day-to-day management of client appointments, orders and deliveries with the team. I also like to ensure I am up to date with the latest fashion news, reading Drapers and WGSN, the fashion trend information website.
To create the perfect wardrobe for our clients, we bring together classic, statement pieces with a twist that are incredibly well cut and affordably luxurious. In order to do this, we look at sourcing items from specific locations throughout Europe. For example, the Italians are renowned for their beautifully designed and well-cut garments, whilst the French do classic style like no other.
When I am selecting a new collection I always have the customer in mind. We may find the perfect jacket and trouser combination, but then we take time to track down the ultimate scarf to sit alongside this. All of these items are extremely well considered offering something for that special dinner, right the way through to the perfect trousers to wear on a flight.
I spend my evenings with my fiancé and we enjoy cooking and travel programmes. I am particularly in to healthy eating and baking although I also love spending time eating out with friends and family.
I wear a selection from my collection. I think it’s important to know how the items can be worn and know what will suit clients and customers alike.
What is the favourite part of your job? Buying the collections. Not only does this allow me to travel, which I love to do, I also get to see what’s coming in from each season. I have just been lucky enough to go on a four-week visit to India, where I was given access to some amazing techniques, fabrics and designs.
What is the least favourite part of your job?
Dealing with all the packaging the clothes come in and stacking up the empty boxes - I love opening them though!
What would be your dream job if you weren’t doing what you do now?
My family have been in the ‘rag trade’ for as long as I can remember and it has been a passion of mine since childhood.
How do you relax when you are not working?
I’m a real foodie so socialising with friends and visiting great restaurants are key to relaxing for me. I love to travel to inspirational cities in Europe as well as experiencing different cultures, all feeding the imagination. I like to go the gym and out for dinner with friends in Tarporley or Chester. I also enjoy cooking and love Yotam Ottolenghi and his books.
I play tennis and used to play lacrosse for the North of England.
What is your favourite film?
A Good Year by Russell Crowe. It centres around a love and passion for Provence - a place I love to visit as often as possible.
What is your favourite book?
Thrive by Arianna Huffington who set up the hugely successful online topical news site Huffington Post. and Shantaram, a novel by Gregory David Roberts set in Mumbai that ignited my fascination with India and its culture.
What is your favourite song?
Anything by London Grammar.
If a film was made of your life, who would you like to play you?
Probably Michelle Williams (inset). If she can pull off Marilyn Monroe I’m sure she’d have no trouble with me. Just as long as I get to select the wardrobe!
Have you had your 15 minutes of fame yet?
I practised yoga with Jude Law in Marari Beach in India earlier this year. He was staying at the same resort and happened to be in the yoga class one morning.
