What makes a great designer?

If you think about the great fashion designers of the 20th and 21st centuries, what comes to mind? Is there an iconic design associated with him or her? (such as Chanel jackets or Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses)

Is your great designer a marketing expert? (such as Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren)

Do you look for classic styles with modern interpretations, or a designer who is completely different every season?

I recently gave some thought to my favourite designers and I’ve discovered I look for iconic pieces with modern interpretations. I like the classics: my dream is a Chanel jacket, and I love my Hermes scarves, Burberry shirts and leather goods, Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses. I also like more contemporary designers Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors for their consistent quality. I admire designers who have influenced fashion and have a rich history in design.

Who’s your favourite and why?
