What are your career highlights?

There have been so many highlights in the various areas of the business, from my WGSN Global Fashion Awards nomination to selection for the ITS#8 Competition, to making costumes for Lady Gaga’s world tour, Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood music video and for The Hunger Games movies. I’ve also loved showing at fashion weeks across the world including Paris, New York, London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Milan and Rome, even taking orders from seven fantastic stores in my very first season, that’s a miracle for most young brands.
