I’m constantly inspired by the women around me, and I’m even more inspired by the women who have blazed a trail ahead of me. There are a plethora of outstanding female designers and creative directors who influence the way that I relate to fashion on a daily basis – some are household names, but too often they are left behind the scenes.
Selfishly I want to know these women. I want to understand what makes them tick and how they’ve made it to where they are. Fashion is something that most of us consume on a regular basis and so their designs spark not only my own creativity, but most of the innovative thoughts that surround me. This year I’m making an effort to get to know the women behind the collections.
