What do you wear to work?Normally black as I can mix and match anything in my wardrobe so I don’t have to think about it for very long. The trick is to always have a pair of killer heels under your desk. You just never know when you might need them!

What do you wear for a big night out?I love long skirts with thigh-high slits at the moment with a loose top, or an understated dress with a blast of Valentino red lipstick.

Tell us about your biggest fashion mistake?I once went out for Boombox in London in a princess outfit on Sunday night. That is a memory I’m still trying to block out.

Tell us about the last occasion you stepped out feeling good?Recently launching my Spring/Summer 2013 collection at the Chester Grosvenor was a great feeling. I loved what I was wearing and I loved what my models looked like.

Who do you consider to be the most stylish man and woman of the past century?Anna Dello Russo, I love her decadence and you cannot forget the Beckhams. I have grown up around them both. I know people are tied but you cannot deny they have super style!

What was the last book you read?I love reading books which you can escape into. I’ve grown up with Harry Potter but I also love factual books. I’ve just read a book all about the history of oysters.
