Laura Martin

  • How would you describe your style?

    "Laidback hippy, vintage and rock all rolled into one; depends what mood I am in but always have something leather, black or studded on - or both!"

  • What are your fashion loves, and your hates?

    "I love leather, studs, long silk tees, a good pair of skinnies and good quality t-shirts. My hates… I’m not very good with knitwear or tight clothing!"

  • What's the most loved item in your wardrobe?

    "Probably one of my many leather or suede jackets - I seem to collect them! It's a classic that goes with everything though so I think you can never have enough!"

  • Party season is coming up – what's your go-to outfit for a night out?

    "It would be a pair of leather trousers that I could add a pair of heels to, so I could dress up or down. Failing that it would be a pair of leather shorts (can you sense a theme here?)."

  • What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into styling?

    "I interned at first, learnt the basics and got as much experience as possible. I assisted a stylist for a year and also did testing - it’s quite important to keep testing yourself outside your comfort zone and as a stylist you need to be able to work with so many different people."

  • Where do you get your inspiration from?

    "Vintage shops, I love Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss and the Olsens!"

  • Name one item no stylist should be without?

    "You need to have a diary, a well charged phone as you always need to be contactable and a good pair of flat trainers - we are always running about !!! Always have a full prop kit too and safety pins are a must!!"

  • What does fashion mean to you?

    "Fashion is how you wear it, follow a trend but dress to suit your own style, be individual and don’t take yourself too seriously - it’s meant to be fun!"

  • What is your favourite AW’13 trend?

    "Tailoring and punk is a massive trend for AW, lucky for me as lots of coloured leather! 60’s was all over the runways along with midi skirt and sweater, which leads onto trends for SS’14 - pastels and cute sweaters are huge and coloured suede is another biggie!"

  • What tune/artist can you not get enough of right now?

    "I love Rudimental, Disclosure, Foxes, MNEK, Syron and Solange, a right old mix! I also love Roisin Murphy - one of my all-time favourite albums."
