What does style mean to you?
To me it's a sense of self, understanding who you are, and owning it. Being comfortable with your identity (no compromise!) and living it out to the fullest.
Describe your personal style in 3 words:
Colourful. Monochromatic. Eccentric.
What are you most drawn to lately in the world of fashion, art, and design?
Wit. Playfulness. Storytelling. I'm crushing on the following people and brands who are doing just that:
What is the style legacy you hope to be remembered for?
I hope that I will become known (and remembered) for welcoming and championing everyone’s styles and voices around me in our industry. We’re surrounded by the most creative and talented people, and it’s my responsibility as Editor of House and Leisure to use our platform to showcase and celebrate these diverse styles.
What wouldn't you be caught dead wearing:
Purple, red or orange.
