Inspiration: Aunt Bridget

In addition to my mother, I’m lucky enough to have another creative, independent woman in my family:  my Aunt Bridget.  As a young woman, she moved from New Zealand to London in the 60’s to train with the Royal Ballet and was truly a woman who embraced the time with style and grace.  As she told me, “there were so many excuses for dressing up:  premier parties,  cocktails on the lawn with Princess Grace and Prince Ranier followed by BBQ on the hills above Monaco at Nureyev’s villa.”  She shopped at Carnaby Street, King’s Road, Biba, Kensington Church street; and was always surrounded by enthusiastic, creative people.  An amazing woman, a huge inspiration!
