1. What’s on your wish list at the moment?
Just about everything! I love this time of year when all the sale stock is filtering out of the stores and new season items are arriving in droves.
Right now I’m desperate to get a new pair of Alaia shoes for showing off in – leopard print calf-hair sandals, a two-tone red and raspberry trench from Jonathan Saunders – that for once I had the foresight to do a personal order on, a Givenchy bowling bag in camel with red and black detailing – very 70’s Gucci, a Roland Mouret stretch pencil skirt in cobalt blue, jewellery from Kyle Hopkins and a Richard Nicoll colour blocked brocade dress.
2. Describe your own personal style?
I like a major frock with a killer heel
3. Which trend will you be working this season?
I am going to embrace colour with arms wide open… Why the hell not? I also love a pencil skirt so will be doing those with slits in.
4. Tell us about your favourite dress and what you love about it?
It has to be my Alaia dress, I found it in the sale shop in Paris swinging on a rail… It’s not an obvious Alaia – ribbed mercerized fabric with a square neck ending just below the knee. Its killer and I know I will have it forever.
5. Your favourite under-rated fashion store/brand?
I am a huge fan of the men’s store Anthem in Shoreditch – such an expert edit and it always looks so beautiful in there. In regards to brands I feel like Richard Nicoll should get more kudos than he does. 2013 is going to be his year, I just know it!

Thanks so much Kate.
