"I grew up in a tailoring family in the British seaport of Plymouth, an important military base. I was surrounded by uniforms and tailors. They were my first inspirations. I was always intrigued by the complexity of constructing garments."
"I aim to dress my female friends throughout their lives — 'through thick and thin,' as the saying goes. I design for a taste level, not an age level, with ideas and details inspired by a man's closet but adapted to fit a woman's lifestyle."
"The graphic fabrications for spring are based on enlarged traditional prints like houndstooth, chevrons, and nautical stripes that are unraveled to create unique black-and-white patterns."
