Describe a typical day for you?
There is no typical day really. I travel a lot for business and am constantly pulled in different meetings, be it an investor meeting in the city or a factory meeting in Portugal. My best days are when I’m in the office with our wonderful design team working on new designs and styles.
What do you feel are your biggest achievements?
Without a doubt my 3 gorgeous children…. and secondly launching heidi klein.
What’s in your handbag?
Apart from my Hermes wallet, I carry an iPhone, Sisley hand cream, lip salve, a pen and my diary. My keys have a key-ring with a group photo of my children.
What are your ambitions in life?
To be happy, healthy and spend as much quality time my lovely family.
What advice would you give your pre-baby self that you now know having had a child?
Don’t over plan everything. This just causes so much undue stress. Just enjoy every moment because the glorious baby-stage goes by so fast.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Hopefully not juggling quite so much!! Kids, work, travel, etc….
What advice would you give a budding fashion designer?
Take time in the beginning to learn as much as you can about the business side too. This is crucial for success in fashion.
Finally, happiness is… Watching the children have fun on the beach while I sip a fine rosé with my husband.
