Tell us about your role at Kathryn Wilson Footwear?
I’m blessed to be part of the KW team assisting part time at the gorgeous new KW boutique in Remuera. The community has been so welcoming and we’ve received such favourable feedback. It’s a joy to delight people and already see repeat custom within the short time we’ve been open. Many walk into the boutique commenting on how uplifted they feel and of course they LOVE the shoes, especially the range of loafers. The added bonus is the introduction of the clothing range including Cocoa cashmere sourced from London.
In three words describe your personal style?
Hmm, tough one to answer as it depends on how I feel on the day! I can enjoy crisp and preppy one day, soft and romantic another, rock chick and fun the next and elegance, simplicity and fine tailoring following. However I’m not shy of colour and I very rarely wear black. Sorry that's not three words!
What is your favourite KW shoe this season and how do you style it?
Jade Slingback in Black Suede... Such an easy heel that elevates any outfit!
- Black Capri pants and crisp white cotton/ silk shirt knotted at waist
- Fuschia pink tutu and luscious piece of cashmere

Describe your favourite KW moment or memory
Kathryn's outstanding extravaganza fashion shows; standouts have been at Michael Hill’ s golf club in Queenstown and on the Ernslaw. I also had unexpected surgery last year and a parcel arrived at our front door . Kathryn had sent me a gorgeous pair of lounge mules. Such a surprise and I was very touched.
Again, too hard to name just one! I always fill my home with gardenias, heirloom roses , peonies when I can
