Your signature style is graphic prints, bright colours and feminine shapes, where do you get your inspiration from?
My colour inspiration always refers back to rainbows and the positivity that they represent. I look a lot to the 70s and 80s for silhouette research and the creative everyday women around me are always inspiring my collections.
