LITTLE JOE WOMAN
What’s your favourite beach?
Andaman Beach in Phuket
I love the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok because of the beautiful riverfront view whilst having dinner. I also love the food, music and ambiance.
Any favourite Little Joe Woman pieces?
I love all my pieces from Little Joe Woman because Gail Elliott’s style of design is very wearable. My friends always compliment me when I wear her pieces and her clothing makes me feel confident and polished and it really suits my style.
What’s your fashion style?
I don't usually like to dress too sexy, I prefer elegance but somehow these clothes make me feel a little sexy which is a nice change. I find I can wear Little Joe Woman for any occasion whether it’s to a casual meeting with friends or out to dinner. I mainly wear dresses or camisoles and skirt combinations and love to throw a leather jacket over my shoulders to complete the look.

What are you working on?
I’m currently building my dream home which I’m very excited about. It’s modern and open with clean lines and beautiful light but warm and welcoming at the same time.
Can’t leave home without?
My assistants, phone, Mercedes and my boyfriend!
