Tell us about your background and your career in fashion

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. 

How do you style your Marfa Stance piece?

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.
