My i-on style

esigner Amanda Wakeley may have dressed some of the world’s
most stunning women - Heidi Klum, Demi Moore, Dita Von Teese,
Charlize Theron and Scarlett Johnanson included – but she admits
to a bit of a fashion crush on Scottish fashionistas.
“You girls love fashion and you really dress up, particularly in Glasgow,” she
says. “There’s a level of grooming and the whole picture is very well put

The designer, whose collection is stocked in Harvey Nichols, launched her
signature label in 1990 and has developed an international reputation for
designing supremely luxurious, elegant womenswear and accessories. Her
evening wear is particularly covetable and, on seeing the new collection, it’s
easy to understand why she’s won three British Fashion Awards for Glamour.

The person whose style I most admire is… Lauren Bacall.
My favourite recent find was… a Faber Castell propelling pencil - I use it
all the time when designing.
I’ve got a thing about… Carinne Gilson lingerie. She is a Belgian lingerie

My best bargain was… a vintage crocodile bag.
I don’t like… disloyalty.
