A WORD WITH
Designer and founder of PHOEBE & KNOX
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A FASHION DESIGNER?
It’s a combination of many things. I love clothes, I love beautiful things, I love making people feel beautiful, I love the industry, I love being creative, I love that I get to explore social media, photography and design, I love that everyday is different and that I get to do accounting and business and deal with so many different jobs all in one. It’s when I talk about it and get so excited that I realize I couldn’t do anything else.
WHAT STYLE ARE YOU BEST KNOWN FOR?
Simple, elegant and timeless.
ANY ADVICE FOR TOMORROW’S YOUNG DESIGNERS?
Be true to yourself and stay authentic, be brave, be thorough and back yourself. You need to be extremely passionate to carry yourself through the tough times.
