How would you describe your look?

Clean cut. Sheer tops add a contrast to the blocks of black that I like to wear. I can’t stand looking fussy or over-dressed so I always keep my outfits simple and avoid wearing lots of jewellery – apart from the two silver rings that I never take off.

What is your favourite item of clothing?

My black cape. I love the faux fur lining and its versatility – sometimes I wear it with my converse and sometimes I wear it out with heels. The best bit about it is that I bought it from a charity shop so nobody else has the same one.

Who are your favourite high street designers?

American Apparel, APC and Comptoir des Cotonniers which is a chain of French boutiques, there’s a great one in my home city.

Who is your favourite designer?

Galliano, I loved the Madame Butterfly collection he did for Dior a few years ago. It’s origami couture at its best.

Are there any eras of fashion that inspire how you dress?

I always steal my parents’ clothes, like my dad’s round Ray-Bans.

Are there any celebrities that inspire your dress sense?

If I had to choose a celebrity who inspires my fashion sense it would have to be Alexa Chung. She has an effortless beauty about her look. It seems as if she never tries too hard to look good and her look is never too overt which appeals to me.
