My Secret Life: Jade Jagger, designer, 37
Saturday 11 July 2009
My parents were ... a great inspiration to me, although I realise that they were icons to everyone else too. As a child they always encouraged me and gave me the strength and support I needed in order to grow
The house I grew up in ... There were so many different places. I spent a lot of time in Cheyne Walk; it was a classic Victorian house in Chelsea. That was back in the Seventies when that area was in its heyday. It was fun
When I was a child I wanted to be ... a ballerina, but I soon turned to art and knew that I would end up in that world, somehow
The first time I got drunk ... was when I was on a family holiday to the Caribbean, on New Year's Eve. I don't remember how old I was, but I do remember stealing rum punch
If I could change one thing about myself ... I've always wanted to be taller
You wouldn't know it but I'm good at ... cooking. I can just about cook anything, from Japanese cuisine to classic Sunday lunches
You wouldn't know it but I'm no good at ... driving. Since I had a car crash about five years ago, I've been put off. Now I'm very nervous, which makes me very slow
At night I dream of ... Last night I dreamt someone gave me a bob haircut at a Japanese airport. I woke up feeling very freaked out
What I see when I look in the mirror ... I have a bit of a phobia about mirrors. I think maybe I've seen too many Jean Cocteau movies. I'm worried I'll see a porthole into another world
My favourite item of clothing ... is one of the Jezebel T-shirts from my new collection. It is white and fluoro, and has safety pins on it
It's not fashionable but I like ... greyhounds. I have four: Italian and Salukis
I drive ... a G-Wiz. I've had it for about two years and I love it. It's like being in a go-cart and everyone always smiles at you
My house is ... forgiving Modernism. First and foremost it's a family house, so there is a slight sense of clutter and caravan
Movie heaven ... I love watching movies on the projector outside my house in Ibiza. We all get together and sit with blankets under the stars. It's beautiful
My favourite building ... is the Eiffel Tower, especially now that it's all sparkly. It looks so glamorous and flashy, and like it's going to take off at any moment
My favourite work of art ... anything by Ross Bleckner. I own a lot of his pieces
A book that changed me ... was 'The Education of Little Tree' by Forrest Carter. It's an inspirational and rather romantic tale about a young guy growing up in an Indian reserve. It made me open my eyes to a more esoteric, less commercial way of living
The last album I bought ... was a Diplo mix tape
My secret crush ... is still my boyfriend, Dan Williams. Why? That'd be a secret
My real-life villains ... are liars
The person who really makes me laugh ... is good old Eddie Murphy. Something to do with my childhood, and that raw comedy of his. And I love Eddie Izzard
The last time I cried ... I was watching the American TV programme 'Brothers and Sisters'. As a mother you relate to other people's families and things they go through
My five-year plan ... I am building up my fashion label Jezebel to be a super brand, with music, fashion and all things creative
My life in six words ... fun, loving, happy, hot, hectic, indulgent
A life in brief
