How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

This year has been very bitter sweet for me, my dad passed away in January. It was the hardest thing to deal with for me. Thankfully work wise we’ve been more busy then ever so that really help take my mind off things, it keeps us busy. Career wise it’s been a really positive, eventful and pivotal year for us. A highlight will have to be the retreat we took with Canada Goose to Paws Up Resort in Montana following a very draining month away for fashion week. It couldn’t have been a more perfect trip.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

I’m obsessing over the new Grimes Album, Art Angels, Pin and REALiTi are my two faves


What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

Tailoring. A man should always look put together and clean, even if he’s wearing sweatpants I like to see that he put in the effort to still look good.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Listen to women’s advice, don’t be afraid to experiment, look for inspiration in Men’s Fashion Magazines (copy what you see until you figure out what style works best for you if you have to) and look to the past. Men’s style stays very consistent throughout the decades,  you can dress like James Dean or Steve McQueen and you will still look like the best dressed guy at a party.


What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

Square toe shoes.

One tip to grow your Instagram account…

Engage with other users, be it individuals or brands that you like to follow, create and be part of a community of like minded people.




Worst dating experience you’ve had?

A guy took me to Central Park to read me his poetry, it was the most awkward first date ever. There was no second date after that.

Any major plans for the remaining days of 2015?

We are still planning on travelling quite a bit before the end of the year. We are going to Whistler and LA and then ending the year off in Mexico, because we’re over winter all together.


Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

I wouldn’t be a fashion girl if I didn’t say Tom Ford. He is universally sexy. He designs beautiful clothes for both men and women, his aesthetic is impeccable and he is multi talented. Gay or straight, he has something for everyone.
