Tell us more about what goes when you’re creating elegant, timeless dresses?

I gain my inspiration from my everyday life, the people I am with and certain things I am experiencing in my life at any given moment. My collections often reflect my mood at the time. Once I’ve gained inspiration for my collection, I develop it in the way in which I think will most flatter a woman and make her feel confident and glamorous.

London's Best Markets

On Imported Blog

London is an incredible city and certainly tops my list (so far) of the best places to visit. Most of my weekends in London are spent dancing in quirky clubs, walking through the beautiful Hyde Park on a rare sunny day and shopping in the hosts of open air markets. The latter however, was by far one of my favorite activities and every Saturday my friend and I would visit a different market, only to find ourselves falling more in love with this amazing city. If you have the chance to spend a day or two in London, the open markets are certainly a must-see and most are easily accessible by the tube and a short walk.


London’s famous Borough Market can only be accurately described as a food lover’s paradise. It is space where the scent of fresh artisan bread, an array of fried delicacies and massive chocolate bars make it nearly impossible for anyone to resist. Boasting food from all over the world, this market truly reflects London’s cultural and ethnic diversity.
