FOR THE LOVE OF FASHION: LOUISE GRAY
When ELLE spoke to London designer Louise Gray she explained her ‘more is more’ approach to fashion. ‘I love layering. I always wear too many accessories; I think it’s more fun. Bring a party to a party, that’s how I approach it. I would describe my style as colourful, playful and a bit mental.’
Read more about Louise Gray’s love of Madonna (‘I have always been obsessed.’), the best fashion advice she was given (‘everything matches if you like it.’), and find out what fashion labels the designer collects in this month’s issue of ELLE.
