JH – How would you define your personal style?
SW – I am a romantic at heart for my work, but in stark contrast, for myself, in the way I dress, I am either a modernist/ minamalist–but in a more intellectual way, as I wear a lot of the Japanese designers: Issey Miyake, Junya Watanabe, Yohji Yamamoto, etc, as well as some of the Antwerp designers like Ann Dullemeister.
Occasionally in the summer months, I go totally exotic, and wear my own ensembles fashioned from gorgeous Indian saris lavishly embellished with beading and embroidery–always paired with killer jewels that are often more pieces of spectacular sculpture–mainly ethnic antiques, Vilaiwan or Monies. I have a strong signature look, and wear my hair slicked back, short and chic.
