How would describe your personal style? Who are your favourite emerging fashion brands?
I am super chilled. It depends on my mood. For me, I really go for what is practical. I don’t do heels! I am so clumsy. I love Nicole Saldana’s shoes, she used to design for Opening Ceremony and a cool colourful latex brand HANGER.
Representation on the catwalk was a huge talking point over Fashion Month, do you think there’s more racial diversity on the catwalk now?
Yes, people love to embrace it. We should do! I find it weird not to; I find it weird if there wasn’t a black model walking the runway. Sometimes we herald the one person that is and it shouldn’t be like that. I encountered racism growing up; [but] I grew up in a very white area and very white school. When I was 8-years-old I was told I would be prettier if I was white – by a friend! I remember coming back from school and telling my dad and he went ballistic. Looking back why did I think that was a normal thing to say?
