She has since scooped up an ITS#10 award, winning the opportunity to work for Maison Martin Margiela in Paris later this year, and has earned bucket loads of press on the way.

She never ceases to amaze me with her mad skills (and ridiculously perfect haircut), and yet she remains one of the best pals a girl could have.
Me and the boyf will be hitting Thailand and HK this September and she's going to be our personal tour guide since Bangkok is where she calls home. Very exciting times!
Here's to an amazing designer and an even better friend! xx
