The Reversible Colourblock Quilt in Fuchsia
Fashion had always held a fascination for me from an early age. Inspired by style mags like The Face and ID, I started making my own clothes as a teenager and this led me onto a fashion design degree. I subsequently realised I was far more interested in style and how clothes could transform who you were rather than the actual design process so decided I wanted to pursue a career as a fashion journalist/editor.
I started out on a style mag called Sky Magazine in 1990. It was a great training ground as it was a very young team and there was a lot of creative freedom. I started more on the writing side but then kind of fell into styling when a fashion editor on the magazine was sick so I was put put in charge of a shoot and loved it. I became Fashion Editor soon afterwards then in 1996 became a founder member and Fashion Director of Wallpaper* magazine, where I stayed for 7 years. In 2004 I joined ELLE Magazine as Fashion Director and then became Editor-In-Chief in 2017. After leaving the magazine I started working on the idea of a sustainably focused title and launched The Calendar Magazine in March 2021.
I’ve worn my Marfa Stance piece for dog walking and running errands over black leggings or jeans and a sweater and have styled up with wide pants for a more dressed up look. It’s a really versatile piece that makes me happy however I wear it.
