What was your path to Linton and Mac:   went full time at Saks when I left school at 16. I was Jaye's assistant there until I left... I went and worked in an office for a while.

What colour in a box of paints best describes you and why:   pink - because it's girly and fun!

What single individual has taught you most in life and what have you learned from them:   Catherine, my mum - she's taught me just to be myself and not change for nobody!
