TELL US WHAT YOU DO...
I am a wearer of many hats!
I am a creative and each day is different. Everything I do works so well together. It is a juggling act, but I am so passionate about each area.
I spread my time between photography, University (studying Graphic Design – I graduate in a year!), Content Creation for brands & assisting my partner Will with his (skiwear) business. We also just launched our own label called Très, which is a (snow) goggle and thermal brand. We’re designing product, which is definitely a learning curve, but so rewarding!
I also used to write and copy-write, but as my passion for photography, graphics and design took over, it’s something that has taken a backseat!
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE?
My style has evolved so much over the years. I would now describe it as classic, tailored, masculine meets feminine and vintage. I love to mix tailoring with more feminine silhouettes, and I am always on the lookout for special vintage pieces I can collect and add to my timeless wardrobe.
I think as I get older, I want to have pieces that I know just work for my body shape, I feel amazing in and are timeless season, after season.
CAN YOU SHARE WITH US ADVICE THAT YOU LIVE BY WHEN IT COMES TO FINDING BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE?
When you figure this out, please let me know! Haha!
It’s one thing I struggle with. Routine definitely helps balance me.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY...
Reading / Sapiens - A brief history of humankind
Listening to / When I am on the road I love listening to podcasts:
- After Work Drinks
- How To Be a Better Human (I love this podcast. They interview different people about all different things. The heading is slightly misleading as it sounds like a cliché self-help podcast, but it's fun and the people are super interesting!).
Watching / There are quite a few good series' out at the moment. I am currently enjoying Rings of Powers (prequel to Lord Of The Rings) and Raised by Wolves.
“JH Lounge are the perfect timeless pieces for my wardrobe. I love how soft their knitwear is, and their sustainable approach to design.”
