What makes you happy?

Cycling in nature, eating out with my boys, productive days in my workshop and SUN !!!

Who is your style icon and why?

I have a few but at top i think is Bjork – music, art, fashion and theatre all rolled into one incredible female.  And Frida Khalo always.

What you listening to and reading at the moment?

I’m listening to A Moon Shaped Pool by Radio Head because its new and genius.  I’m reading Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta. 

What do you like about SIDELINE? 

The detailing and the mix of fabrics within one item make SIDELINE garments stand out for me - they feel crafted. I have a passion for blue/indigo fabric so many pieces hit the spot for me.
