What can't you live without during fashion week?

Compeed plasters, a comb, Carmex, Avene hydrating spray, flat shoes on stand-by, The Cure and Joni Mitchell on repeat and twitter.

What are your most anticipated shows this season?

I cannot wait to see Simone Rocha's show. Her collections are so considered, beautiful and wearable - the perfect mix of feminine and masculine.

Tell us your most memorable fashion week moment?

The second last Luella show in Feb 2009 played out to The Smiths (Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others). It was one of my first ever seasons and the perfect introduction. It felt like a very special and intimate show, sometimes there's just magic when it all comes together. Apart from that, interviewing Kayne West and Roisin Murphy on my maiden voyage. He told me I could ask one question, I asked three before being escorted away!

If you were a designer which track would open your show?

Villagers - The Pact

Tell us your favourite fashion quote

"Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants."

Karl Lagerfeld is a genius. I feel the same way about leggings. Call them what you like - 'jeggings' or 'treggings' or whatever, they are basically tights, approach with caution!
