What is the must have piece for spring?
A beautiful floral dress and we’ve got you covered!
Who inspires your style?
Michelle Obama. Her style and grace is classic with a twist.
Describe your perfect night.
Most people would say a quiet night in, but my perfect night is spent with my children and grandchildren, and it is far from quiet! But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What is the most common fashion mistake?
Not wearing the correct underwear is the most common, but we are all time-poor, and it is time-consuming for women to get this done.
Can you give us three essential fashion tips for the spring racing season?
1 – Find a dress that fits your body shape.
2 – Make sure your accessories are balanced and co-ordinate with your outfit.
3 – If you're walking on grass, don’t forget your heel protectors. And have a fun day out! What’s your favourite pastime?
When I get time, I enjoy reading a great book. I am currently reading historical fiction The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. What should everyone throw out of their wardrobes immediately?
Anything you haven’t worn for a year; chances are you’ll never wear it again. Where do you go to escape in the city?
Black Estate winery – I love supporting locals and they have a beautiful chardonnay paired with Rachel Scott ciabatta and North Canterbury truffle butter. And who could resist the view, it’s stunning! I could be anywhere in the world at that moment, and that’s the perfect escape, isn't it? Who are the up-and-coming designers to look out for?
