What is your greatest achievement?
It is probably leaving the security of a good job and salary and pursuing the dream of starting a business. It is terrifying but so rewarding. People often feel too scared to go ahead with their ideas, so I’m pleased I managed to do that at a younger age than most.
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
Ambitious, driven and resilient
What is one piece of jewellery you can’t live without?
I always wear a yellow gold pendant and my watch.
Do you have a favourite piece of Kiki jewellery?
As a big yellow gold fan, I love the classic Diamond hoops and the new Lola plain gold cross-over ring to wear alongside a suit in the daytime. The Special Edition Fire Opal earrings with the flower stud also really caught my eye and would dress-up a suit perfectly for evening wear.
What makes you feel powerful?
Wearing a beautifully tailored suit.
What’s your go-to fashion statement?
A tailored suit because it is super versatile, timeless and understated. It can be worn in many combinations for relaxed or smart looks which see you from day to evening.
What inspired you to set up ‘The Deck’?
To allow women to experience something their male counterparts have had for decades and to give women their own space to have that experience. I want to encourage women to come to a place where their emotional understanding with clothing is met and to make clothes of their dreams. I also want every woman to understand the empowered feeling of wearing a tailored suit.
