5ive words that describe the Marie Chantal brand best?
Approachable, Playful, Magical, Quality and Stylish
What are your favourite activities in London and what would you recommend to a first time visitor to London?
I love the Royal Academy of Arts so I always tell people to visit it when they are in London. At the moment they are exhibiting Anselm Keifer and Allen Jones so there is always something super interesting going on!
The Walton Street boutique was recently redesigned and it looks wonderful! Where did the inspiration come from and why did you choose Walton Street as a location?
Walton Street has always been one of my favourite shopping streets in London, it is so cute and behind Brompton Road which makes it feel like a hidden gem. The new store design was inspired by a traditional London town house with a modern twist. Located at 148 Walton Street, SW3 2JJ
What is planned in the coming year for the brand?
We are planning to launch in the Middle East so that is super exciting
How does a quintessential day in London for you pan out?
I am up early getting my youngest ready for school then off to the office on the Kings Road. I will go over new design collections with my design team and brainstorm ideas for my new blog.
I try and get as much done as possible so I can be home in time to see the children!
