Help Us Grill Mulberry's Creative Director!
Submit your questions and the best ones will appear (along with answers!) in our next issue.
We can see from Stella McCartney and Clare Waight Keller that British women are strong forces in fashion. They don't rap, they don't yell out racist slurs in bars and their catwalk bows don't involve bicycles or cartwheels, but their devotion to their art is indisputable.
Add to this group Emma Hill, the Creative Director for Mulberry since 2008, who is the driving force behind the luxury leather goods label. Injecting a heavy dose of cool into the cult British bag house, Hill has given Alexa teddy-bear head rivets (the bag, not the girl it's named after) and has proved that women know best what women want to wear - that might be colourful, swingy anoraks and buttery leathers, Fantastic Mr. Fox furs and googly-eyed fruits, all of which have featured in Hill's last three collections for the brand.
And when it comes to designers like Emma Hill, it's precisely this professional restraint (e.g. refraining from ragging on fellow fashion types or taking OTT catwalk bows), which makes them so intriguing. So, we decided that we would crowd source a few interesting questions from our readers with which to grill Miss Hill. Simply send your questions to [email protected] and keep an eye on the next issue - if we think yours is one of the best it will appear in print!
