What did you look to for inspiration when designing this collection? I'm on my third collection, so I'm learning my customer--they like the height, they like embellishment, they like something different. So I think it's [about] keeping it feminine, easy to wear, and then still have that little bit of rock 'n' roll. And deciding the color palette was a big moment. I love the nude shoes for summer. They give you that elongated leg--and when you have a bit of tan, they look even better.
I love all the spikes on the shoes. They're thorns not spikes! I like a spike, and that whole rock chick feel but on a prettier shoe. But the studs have been so done, so it was about finding something different. So I think thorns were a good thing to go with.
How would you recommend wearing the jewelry? The accessories I did last season too, and that worked really well. I like designing jewelry that's not for day or night--It's however you want to wear it. I love layering all my jewelry.
You seem to love a really high heel. What advice would you give to those worried about not being able to walk in such a high shoe? Well the platform really does make such a difference. People think they're so high, but as long as the platform is there you're alright.
What music are you into right now? I'm quite an old soul. I like Lionel Richie and George Benson.
