1. What is your first fashion memory?
My first fashion memory was my mum wearing this long purple crochet gown for a work ball she was going with my dad. My parents both doctors and they had a glamorous event every month. My mum was always a true inspiration.
2. What has been your best-selling item?
My best item is the cocktail dress…every season I would have couple of these cocktail dresses with in the collection and it’s always in the best-seller list.
3. What has been your most unexpected success?
After my first show, I won the New Generation Award from the British Fashion Council four times and I am truly thankful for their support. Also being invited to Buckingham Palace to meet with queen and receive a thank you for my contributions to British fashion industry in 2010 was a big highlight in my career.
4. What did you spend your first big pay cheque on?
A 2 week holiday in Barbados
5. What do you see as your unique point of difference?
I am an incurable romantic and my aim as a designer is to seek and define beauty in my own terms. Fashion design for me is a visual language that enables me to communicate with the outside world.
