The value of my brand is to be "exclusively" not exclusive, and to offer attainable luxury at the core. However, in the end, it's all about making women feel beautiful and that's the true value and principle I go by.
This anniversary collection inspiration came from my fascination with the cultural richness of French nightclubs. I have always been particularly drawn to the shift from bourgeois balls to dance halls in the 1920s when women started to become more confident with their dressing. I have always loved the decadence and spectacle of Parisienne nightclubs. The textures and rich fabrics that decorated these clubs, particularly the use of velvet, baroque accents, and silk are all referenced in this collection. From a design perspective, the silhouettes that were seen during the 90s were a focal point for my designs.
The trend right now is investing in timeless pieces that have longevity. Tailoring is also a huge part of the season, with a hint of romance coming through.
Blazers in the daytime are easily worn with work clothes, and when running errands. Then by night, you can keep the same blazer when it's chilly by draping it on your shoulders over your dress.
I always dare people to take a risk with colours. My best advice is to just give it a go and be confident, I've never seen someone who doesn't look good in colour!
Paris of course! I am lucky enough to be able to travel there every season to show my collections, and always find myself feeling inspired. With each visit, it's more and more beautiful.

I'd use my points to buy all the new men's fashion on Qantas marketplace. I've had my eye on a few luxury items that have been so carefully curated on the site.
