What does it mean to you to be named a Walpole 2020 Power List winner?
I’m deeply honoured. When I was growing up the world of luxury seemed so far out of reach. So to be on this list is amazing.
Why do you think you were named on the List this year?
I would hope it’s because ELLE shows that there is another way to approach luxury. We have opened our doors wide open to show that anyone and everyone deserves to be part of the luxury world should they so choose.
