A long sleeved dress is a must-have as part of my wardrobe as you can sneak all manner of layers underneath it. My extremities suffer with the cold even indoors over winter - I often jest that I must be part lizard. Some people are naturally warm all the time which makes me so envious; how convenient!

In my mind's eye I would secretly love to design a range of clothing each season which would be made up of pieces that would be timeless and give a nod to the colours and trends of the time but not to the extent of rendering them out of place in years to come. It would make for an amazing project. Maybe one year?
