Rome is my favourite city in the world. There is something about the mix of old and new that is so magical.

My all-time favourite meal is Thanksgiving dinner.

An item I truly treasure is my grandmother’s wedding band.

My best-laid travel plans were when my family took a road trip from Colorado, down through Moab, Utah; the Grand Canyon in Arizona; and New Mexico. It was so inspiring – really the most interesting culture in the United States.

In my wardrobe, a Dries Van Noten floor-length peacoat is my favourite item

The best part of my job is that I get to do what I love every day. Even though fashion can be stressful, like any other job, I am fortunate to be creative and to be surrounded by beauty and art every day.

My favourite song is Jolene by Dolly Parton and The Great Gatsby is my favourite book

My husband and I collect art. He is an artist, and we have met incredible artists. We like to buy art from people whom we have a personal relationship with.

Mint chocolate chip ice cream is what I turn to as my cheat treat.
