9 questions I frequently get asked as a fashion expert. Everything from why and how I got into fashion to my style icons.
Why I got into fashion … It’s hard to pin point exactly when or why fashion became my career as I can’t ever remember a time I wanted to do anything else. I can remember traipsing around in my mother’s high heels at maybe 5 or 6 years old all the time, changing outfits several times day to asking for a sewing machine on my 16th Birthday. Fashion for me was always what I enjoyed so it just became a natural progression or as some may call it ‘my destiny’. I’m lucky I got to make a career out of what I loved doing and dreamt of from a young age.
My favourite fashion quote… ‘Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.’ – Rachel Zoe.
Whats currently on my fashion WISH LIST… This is a hard question to answer, as I never seem to have just one item on this list. Currently I’m in love with a Sandro black biker leather jacket, Friend in Fashions recently launched Ballettonet Positano Slides ( Can’t decided on which colour Noir, Acqua or Rose any help would be greatly appreciated ) and the Saint Laurent Cassandrea small suede cross body bag.
What is my style … I’m never too fixed on one particular style or look. I think this comes from being a bit of a creative person and wanting to explore new things and styles. I tend to enjoy new trends and dress for where I am, what occasion or what mood I’m in. If anything perhaps I lean towards more structured fashion pieces that highlight form and fit.
My beauty go to… Red Lipstick – Lady Danger by MAC to be exact. It instantly lifts my spirits and gives me confidence.
My fashion tip… Don’t let your accessories over run your outfit, you want to subtly compliment it.
My current perfume scent… Tom Ford – Velvet Orchid.
Style Icons… Christine Centenera, Olivia Palermo and Blake Lively.
Influences in my life… My beautiful Mum and Melbourne Fashion Stylist Lana Wilkinson.
