The venue: Truc Vert, a small café in Mayfair – because it's very near my office.

The company: I took Giles Deacon there recently. I take a lot of fashion designers there, and they tend to like it as it's a little informal and doesn't feel like they're having a job interview.

The conversation: Elle is 25 years old in October, so we chatted about him being involved in our birthday issue. We also spoke about his new job at Ungaro.

On the menu: I always have a quiche and their deep fried courgettes.

And to drink? A sparkling water and a really large coffee.

Come here often? Not often. I have an absolute rule on it because it takes up too much of my time. I leave work at 5 o'clock so I can get home to be with the kids.

Truc Vert, 42 North Audley Street, London W1.
