In our latest edition of ‘Five Fashion Questions’, we chatted to Etta in a busy Soho coffee shop (just before she reviewed the S/S16 Teatum Jones catwalk show for us at LFW) – and even found time to squeeze in a quick photo shoot too.
Who are your favourite designers?
I’m going to be honest… my knowledge isn’t really that up on designers, and I’m not that fussed about labels. I’d rather go to a charity shop and spend £20 and buy four items, or like a treasure that I’ve found, that’s more my style. I think once I’ve got more money I’ll have a better answer for you!
What’s your favourite piece in your wardrobe right now?
Well, I just bought this kimono. It reminds me of my mum – if you know my mum, this is very her, the colour as well. Other than that, I would probably say my DMs, which I wear with everything. Can’t go without those!
Charity shops aside, where do you like to look for clothes?
If I want to splash out, I would probably take it up a notch and go to Brick Lane or somewhere with loads of vintage shops. I do like Blitz, that’s where I got my kimono from… anywhere like Rokkit, I’m happy there.
When you were younger, what was the most embarrassing thing you ever wore?
I don’t know… I was a bit fat when I was younger, so that was the most embarrassing part of it all. I was a really chubby little girl. I don’t look back on old photos and think, ‘What was I wearing?’ – I think, ‘Oh my god, what was I eating??’ I was massive.
And lastly… how would you describe your personal style?
Comfortable and strong.
