Occupation Fashion designer

What are you wearing?

My dress is from a boutique in LA, these jeans are Abercrombie & Fitch, my flip-flops are from Gap, my bag is from a Paris boutique – everyone comments on how much they like this bag – and my sunglasses are from Mango.

Can you describe your style?

I go for casual streetwear with a pretty twist.

Do you have any top fashion tips for summer?

Everyone should try wearing dresses in the hot weather – they’re easy and fun. I like embellished clothing and careful layering so that people have a simple silhouette but still look interesting.

Is there a look you’ll avoid this summer?

Avoid punk-inspired outfits, especially over-the-top grungy punk styles.

Which are your favourite shops?

Topshop and River Island are fantastic – it’s so disappointing we don’t have them in the States!

Who is your style icon?

Mischa Barton is gorgeous.
