I have a special lady in my Woo Hot Seat today, that is the glorious jewellery-maven, Izzy Fellowes of Aluna Mae.

Fast becoming the love of my (jewellery) life, STEVIE has accompanied me on many outfits (and I’ve received all the compliments, lucky woo) and I will continue to rock it out this season. Chokers are here to stay for a good while yet.

On that magical note, I wanted to know more about the dazzling beauty behind the brand… Who is Izzy Fellowes? Here, she shares with me her top styling tips, the latest jewellery trends and her outstanding collection.

In the Woo Hot Seat this weekwe have fashion designer Robyn Heald.

I remember the butterflies I got when I first saw Robyn’s creations at Graduate Fashion Week. I knew from that moment, she would go on to do amazing things.

There, she was spotted by talent scouts from Abercrombie & Fitch, who jetted her off to work in their headquarters in Ohio, USA. Then, she was head-hunted by our British equivalent, Jack Wills, designing everything from jumpers to underpants (we can only imagine the fit model sessions) and has recently embarked on her next exciting venture.

Now embracing the best of both worlds – life in the city and the beach – Robyn lives in the bustling and super-trendy delights of East London, and commutes to the idyllic shores of Salcombe in Devon, to design the womenswear offering for nautical-inspired leisurewear company Quba & Co. 

Read all about Robyn’s journey as a fashion designer, what inspires her and being on location at Quba & Co’s AW14 photoshoot (and meet Wilbur the whale too!) Ahoy, sailor.
