If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
Planning the Japan summer collection.
A phrase I use far too often...
"Do you know what I mean?" Oh, and also: "I can't bear it, it's making me nauseous," when I see fabric I don't like.
The most surprising thing that happened to me was...
My daughter coming out with bright red hair.
A common misperception of me is...
People assume it's this really glamorous lifestyle but it's not. It's really hard work.
I am not a politician but...
If I were I'd get rid of the congestion charge.
I'm good at...
I'm bad at
Delegating – I'm a complete control freak.
The ideal night out is ...
A night in with the girls.
The best age to be is...

Try to be happy, and live for the moment.
