‘VAIN TRIFLES AS THEY SEEM, CLOTHES HAVE, THEY SAY, MORE IMPORTANT OFFICES THAN TO MERELY KEEP US WARM. THEY CHANGE OUR VIEW OF THE WORLD AND THE WORLD'S VIEW OF US' -Virginia Woolf
From an international background, I was born in Hong Kong and travelled extensively all over the world in my formative years. I also developed a love for fashion through an unparalleled exposure to luxury goods.
After attending St Mary’s Public School, Ascot, UK, I completed an MA Honours degree at Edinburgh University and a Chartered Institute of Marketing Diploma.
Receiving compliments on my natural eye to put together outfits in a stylish, sophisticated and elegant way, I created my own cashmere brand after being involved in high fashion for 25 years working for companies such as Conde Nast Publications, De Beers and Chanel and qualifying with a London diploma in luxury styling.
My expertise is dedicated to provide women with top quality, innovative yet timeless, sustainably sourced, cashmere designs that may be worn again and again in different combinations with on-trend accessories. The outfits take you from day to evening; relaxing in comfort at home, running errands, off to the gym, smart looks for work, wearing flattering colours on ZOOM, and travelling in effortless style abroad.
Recently, I've broadened the collection by developing a Luxury Home Wear range which includes items such as reversible cashmere Stoles and bespoke Blankets made by B Corp sustainably sourced Scottish manufacturers.
This year sees the launch of my new SCARF-SARONG COLLECTION made in Como, Italy. I was delighted to partner with the talented wildlife artist, Rose Corcoran, and digitally print her exquisite drawings of endangered wild animals on to the softest, modal cashmere, Scarf-Sarongs. Modal is a biodegradable, man-made, sustainable fibre sourced from natural materials. The lustrous finish and light weight drape of each piece creates a wonderful scarf and a stunning sarong.
£10 for each sale is donated to 'The Whitley Fund for Nature' to support wildlife conservation. HRH The Princess Royal is Patron and Sir David Attenborough is a Trustee.
Through the many online virtual events this year I am also donating a percentage of sales to several worthy causes, such as 'Wellchild', 'The Rugby Portobello Trust', 'Il Circolo' promoting love and understanding of Italian culture and 'Women supporting Women'.
It gives me great pleasure to offer finest cashmere designs which reflect the best of who you are.
