Why do you feel ethical fashion is important?

Because everyone has the right to be treated humanely, to have a childhood, be given a fair wage for a days work, and have the right to be a member of a union. That doesn’t sound like a lot to ask does it?

What is the ethical/ sustainable issue in relation to what you do/ consume that you feel most good about?

I have solar panels on my roof, and walk or cycle as much as possible. Despite being in the fashion industry, we try to promote considered investment purchases, as opposed to throwaway fashion, and we try to do it with integrity. I am also a creative advisor to Oxfam , and help them to continue to innovate and raise money.

What makes you unhappy?

The treatment of women across the globe.

Who are your all-time favourite designers?

Miuccia Prada and Coco Chanel

What single ethical/ sustainable product would most improve the quality of your life?

A switch that turned off everything in the house by the front door!
