The 34-year-old model-turned-fashion designer thinks that every woman’s clothing collection should have a selection of staple items which act as the “architecture for the house you’re building”, and her must-have garments include denim, a blazer and “iconic trainers”.
In an interview with Vogue Australia, she said: “I think it’s about having enough staple items to act as the pillars or the architecture for the house you’re building. For the clothes, that would be the perfect denim, a great blazer, a really comfy sweater, maybe a plain white t-shirt, and some iconic sneakers. Then around that, you can incorporate like a Maryam Nassir Zadeh tiny handbag, or like a lime green see-through dress or some cycling shorts, or whatever! So you’ll have enough items to counter-balance the weirdness.”
She said: “I think my whole opinion on personal style and getting dressed is that its personal experience, so I’ve never been someone who wants to give advice because I don’t think it should be prescriptive. I think people should find their own way, celebrate who they are and individualism is key!
“Get in the shower, have a think about how you want to feel that day and dress for the character you’re going to play.
“If you’re like I want to feel sexy and get laid then put on the suspenders and hope for the best, but if you’re like, I really need to be the boss today then I suppose it’s going to be a roll-neck jumper and a heel!”
