Can you tell us how you came up with the title for your SS17 collection?
The collection was inspired by Formula One and drag racing, so partly as a result of that. But I also like that a ‘fast’ woman is normally used as a condescending term – I wanted to reinterpret ‘Fast Women’ as something positive, risk taking women.
Why were motor sports and drag racing prominent motifs in this collection?
I like that it’s not normally associated with femininity. For most people, race car driving represents adrenaline and risk – I wanted to celebrate those characteristics in women, I don’t think they’re celebrated enough.
