Last month I was asked by the British Fashion Council to host a talk at London Fashion Weekend – it was such an honour to be invited and I have to admit, it was one of the highlights of my career.
But what to wear? I knew I wanted to wear High Street, but the best of it. I went with Topshop Unique statement heels and tee and paired with an old H&M skirt – as the Topshop Unique A/W15 LFW show was my favourite of the season. I wanted to be dressed up but also understated – my shoes got A LOT of attention (and they are actually comfortable!).

we chatted about all things fashion, what I have learnt from 11 years in the industry and advice for people getting into fashion. My advice was mainly: work hard and be nice to people! It takes a HUGE commitment to work in fashion – it is not just a job, but a lifestyle. but if you love it enough, your hard work and determination will shine through. Every job I have got has been through recommendations, it’s such a small industry and everyone knows everyone. If you’re a hard worker, your name will pass around. The talk was over subscribed – the room was full to the rafters – and I had the chance to speak to a few people after the talk which was really amazing – I hope I managed to inspire a few people!
