Fashion is more than one item it is a total outfit

I’ve never been a slave to fashion and I never will be. Of course, I want to look great, but not at the cost of pinched toes and uncomfortable ‘body-shapers’ or hours spent in crowded shops. But when I was filming My `Kitchen Rules I met the excellent fashion guru Jane Galpin and the wonderful Claire Ginzler who understand my style completely. And happily, have agreed to help me with this website in the hopes that a few of my mini edits or suggestions might inspire you. The clothes and accessories will be a mix of old (favourites in my wardrobe) and new…but all fabulous in their own right.
