Two very happy things happened this morning. I visited 10 Corso Como and I saw Ilse Crawford. Although too shy (hard to believe) to introduce myself, she is one of the reasons I am the stylist I am today. I have every copy of Elle Decoration that she edited in the 90s. She was a huge influence on how I looked at design, products, photographs and other greats, like stylist/artist Sue Skeen, photographers, James Merrell & Martin Morel amongst many others. All these people continue to inspire & mould me as their greatness changes with the times.
