the Australian stylist, fashion icon and queen of bold statements
"I love colour. My favourites: vermillion, burnt, canary yellow, viridescent, purples and bullet blue. I also adore mixing graphic, bold patterns such as animal prints."
What is your life motto?
"I really believe that what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. Fashion is about creation and re-creation, but it takes individuality, stamina, focus and a love of life- even through the setbacks."
"I truly believe that style has no price. Spending less makes creativity blossom."
"Shopping is my research. I obviously love flea markets, which Paris is renowned for, and let my senses guide me."
Do you read blogs?
"I love Diane Pernet's A shaded View on Fashion(www.ashadedviewonfashion.com). Diane is a complete intergalactic blog queen."
"I have many spiritual mentors, but (furniture maker and fashion designer) Vincent Darre, creator of Maison Darre, inspires me greatly. He radiates a joie de vivre not only in his work but in all aspects of his life. I was lucky enough to meet him over 14 years ago at a Chanel show; he is still in my life and I find his energy utterly contagious"
