How would you describe your personal style?
Eclectic, experimental and a little bit of everything. I hate style genres or describing yourself with mono-style buzz words like "classic" or "grungy". I like mish-mashing different styles together.
What is there too much of in your wardrobe?
I definitely have an abundance of floral prints, sheer fabrics and lurex, which in itself is a bit of an incongruous mix!
What’s your must have fashion accessory?
Right now, I'm quite excited about being able to swing my small Canon EOS M camera around, which is about a quarter of the size of the bulky DLSR that I used to carry. I just customised the strap too so that it matches the Kenzo bucket bag that I'm still slightly obsessed with.
What are your go-to labels?
I don't really like relying on one source for clothes but that said, I do have quite a bit of J.W. Anderson, Christopher Kane and Simone Rocha. Everything from Opening Ceremony pretty much makes me happy so that's a good one stop drop and on the high street, Topshop, COS and Whistles are my favourites.
What are you happiest wearing?
Trainers - preferably ones with flashes of neon like the Nike Flyknits that I'm obsessed with at the moment - and then paired with something unexpected like an ornate dress or a voluminous skirt.
Give us a clever styling tip.
I like turning buttoned-up cardigans and baggy jumpers into skirts. You just slip your legs into the neck hole (v-necks are best) and pull the cardi / jumper up to your waist and then tie the sleeves around your waist to secure it - you can add a belt if it's not staying put. I like anything that reminds me of messed up school uniforms.
Whose wardrobe would you love to steal?
The stylist and editor Katie Grand, I hear, has a brilliant archive - all the best show pieces from over the years.
Do you plan your outfits or throw on whatever's to hand?
Throw on whatever I'm obsessed with at the moment. Especially at home. I hate planning outfits and only do it when I'm travelling.
What’s the most treasured item in your wardrobe?
A Zandra Rhodes bed jacket that I bought at auction a few months ago. It's from her 1974 Ayers Rock collection and is so beautiful. I love it when seasoned fashion journalists recognise it as soon as they see it.
Where do you look for inspiration if you don't know what to wear?
A mixture of magazines, Tumblr blogs and, weirdly, old boxes of clothing that I've stored away thinking that I'm going to get rid of them and find that actually, they could do with a renewed lease of life.
What is the craziest thing you have you done for the love of fashion?
Borrowing money from someone to take a trip to Antwerp so that I could see the Yohji Yamamoto exhibition. Actually, I spent a bit of my student loan taking random trips to Antwerp because I had a mild obsession of all things Belgian and the Antwerp Six.
Is there is one label we should watch out for in 2013, what should it be?
Definitely Simone Rocha - her work has been consistently impressive and her last S/S 13 show was really moving. I have Stone Roses' I Wanna be Adored (it was used in the show soundtrack) stuck in my head all the time now, along with flashes of Rocha's dresses.
What’s your sartorial guilty pleasure?
Uniqlo Heat Tech tops. I can't get enough of them and seem to buy a new one every time I go into the store because I'm convinced the heat tech properties wear off after washing.
