My Nana was an antique jewellery collector who would buy, fix and sell stunning jewellery. My Mother was in fashion and taught me about art and the freedom of expression through fashion.
I grew up with my Nana who used to buy and sell estate jewellery. She’d always have these boxes and boxes of random things that she’d bid on without knowing what was really inside. It was always hit and miss but she’d sometimes get lucky and find like an 18-carat diamond ring. There was pure joy going through some of the boxes.
My Mother worked for a few amazing designers, Zandra Rhodes and John Galliano in London and has always had a very distinct style. I was always in awe of the clothing she made and wore. Both designers are huge inspirations to me and also Alexandra Mcqueen.
