What has been your most memorable campaign, and why?
I would have to say, my most memorable 'pinch me' moment over the years would be the first time Burberry took me on a media trip over to Seoul, South Korea to cover the new TB Monogram collection. We explored so many beautiful locations to shoot and immersed ourselves in the culture - it was one of those moments that you had to ask yourself 'is this really my job'?! It was incredible.
How would you describe your personal style?
A combination of masculine and feminine in a tonal colour palette. I'd say I'm quite a minimalist but with an edge.
Can you tell us about some of the pieces you have consigned?
Although a number of these pieces were particularly hard to part with, I know that they will find a home with people that will love them just as much as I did! The Jimmy Choo Biker Boots are super classic and such a timeless item that I think a buyer will get so much wear out of! The Givenchy Antigona in tan is a forever piece - I love the size as it allows you to turn this into a (very luxe!) everyday bag that can fit your laptop etc. I also have a soft spot for the Tods loafers but I sadly got them just that tiny bit too tight which stopped me from wearing them. I instead have just 'appreciated' them sitting pretty in my wardrobe but have finally decided to part with them so one lucky person can not just appreciate them but get some serious wear out of them also!
How do you decide when to part with a piece?
All of these pieces have held a special place in my wardrobe and have aligned with my personal style, however at some point you have to let them go. When I know that I haven't worn something for a period of time (say 12-18 months) I know it is time to part with it so someone else may be able to find more purpose. I also think of it as a chance to reduce the quantity of items I hold - by selling 3-4 items I can then justify buying one new investment item that I may use on more of a regular basis.
What's one investment piece you think will remain timeless?
Parting with the Valentino Taped Sandals was super hard as I know that leading into summer these are the perfect investment piece that would be utilised on the daily due to their monochrome, minimalist shape. Sadly, due to having a large foot and the shoes not fitting as well as I would hope I have to part with these beauties - I know one lucky person will get the wear out of these as much as I wish I could have!
What piece would you recommend for someone to invest in to start their luxury capsule wardrobe?
I believe that accessories can elevate any outfit so if you are beginning your luxury capsule wardrobe a classic handbag is something I would reach for first. You need to ask yourself what colour, shape and style of handbag will represent your personal style the most - is it a classic black bag, a neutral tone or maybe even a print? Once you are aware of what represents you, find a piece that fits this criteria. If you do, you will no doubt have this piece for years to come!
