What does the word Muse mean to you?

I think of someone that is confident, aware and not afraid to express themselves authentically. A muse knows who they are and what they are passionate about and acts as an example for others to follow.

How has your work with luxury retailers informed your style and affinity for designer silhouettes?

My style has elevated and diversified. I've had the opportunity to travel with clients and brands, taking inspiration from different people and places along the way. I spend most of my time dressing men so I find myself drawn to tailored styles like vests and trousers too.

What's an emerging designer you think everyone needs to know about?

Since this is coming out Spring/Summer… Siedres! I definitely will be wearing some pieces on my travels this summer. I'm also loving Cordera for easy pieces and Kika Vargas for the most special dresses.

What are some of your go-to styling tips you've learned over the years?

Oh man…maybe we should save this for a video ;)

If you could only shop one designer for the rest of your life, who would it be?

LOEWE. More specifically Paula’s Ibiza collection- it just makes me so happy and reminds me of travel, which is how I celebrate working really hard.

How do you incorporate streetwear into your everyday looks while keeping it elevated?

I am a little sneaker obsessed. I was working for Net-a-Porter when the sneaker craze really went insane and got so many great pairs of the Nike x Sacais. I'd wear sneakers with everything if I could and. find that my clients lean toward the sporty side too. For my more feminine clients, we select styles like the Loewe runner or something from The Row that is more dainty.  

What's your favorite trending silhouette right now?

I am LOVING menswear and vests, most specifically. There are so many amazing styles that are coming out; I can’t wait to create looks with the ones I’m bringing into my wardrobe year round.
