If there’s one woman who knows online fashion inside out its Lauren Stevenson, PR Director @ my-wardrobe.com. Find out what’s on Laurens’ wish-list and discover which brand you should be keeping an eye out for in the future.
1. What’s on your wish list at the moment?
Ever since I saw the AW12 shows, my wish list has been growing and growing. Top of the list is the Acne black Rita jacket, Joseph olive leather leggings, 2nd Day Shearling gilet, 3.1 Phillip Lim Black Pashli bag and a GOAT yellow shift dress.

2. Describe your own personal style?
My personal style is classic and feminine with an edge. I tend to go for classic pieces such as leather leggings, 60s shift dresses or cropped tailored trousers toughened up with accessories. I love belts, statement necklaces and oversized cocktail rings. I try to mix it up every season with colour and different silhouettes.
3. Which trend will you be working this season?
Definitely the leather and opulent trends. I love anything leather, be it a skirt, shorts, leggings, draped or biker jacket or top. It’s a fierce trend that you can wear in a very feminine way with the right styling.
I also love the opulent trend seen at the Dolce&Gabbana show. Rich decadent fabrics, embellishment and lashings of statement jewellery is such a fun, glamorous look for this season.
4. Tell us about your favourite dress and what you love about it?
Apart from my wedding dress, my favourite dress would have to be a lace black D&G strapless dress. I have always loved Dolce&Gabbana and the classic Dolce Vita look. The dress is very chic, but has an underlying sultry sexiness. My husband loves it so it’s always a winner for weddings and anniversaries.

5. Your favourite under-rated fashion store/brand?
It would have to be Anton Heunis which is the most incredible jewellery brand. my-wardrobe.com discovered Anton about four seasons ago and I find myself buying about four pieces every season. We are very privileged to work on exclusive designs specially for the my-wardrobe customers.
