I studied Shakespeare at university and fell in love with the costume rather than the language (which was meant to be my focus). Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet was so sumptuous you wanted to reach into the screen and touch the Elizabethan velvets and Jacobean brocades. I have since through fashion styling, been drawn to contemporary aesthetics that draw on 16th century design, colour palettes and of course, romance.

My Grandmother was my hero. She was a kind soul and had impeccable taste! Usually found in hand-painted silk dresses and walking boots exploring as many new cultures as she could fit into one lifetime. She lived all over the world and accumulated a delicious melting pot of recipes, leaving behind a treasured cookbook. I’m rarely not cooking one of her dishes. In this photo, my grandparents are driving from the Middle East to Norfolk on their wedding day.

I felt very akin to Frida Kahlo growing up. My mother possessed a similar zest for colour, painting, appearance, and strength of character. I spent a long time in hospital at 21 years old, like Frida, and felt frustrated by my (temporary) disability. Art was my only outlet which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I refined my cultural references, read about fashion history and leaders in taste-making. I started to build a library of dog-eared photography books which I rely on today when building moodboards for shoots.
