Question time: Juliette Hogan

The NZ designer unveils her loves, her lust-haves and her lifesavers

The website I can’t resist checking is… Our Kitchen by Fisher & Paykel – I just love browsing their recipes for inspiration.

My go-to party outfit is… My AW2016 High Crew dress. It’s effortless, sophisticated and it can take me from day to night with a change of shoe.

My everyday outfit look is… Luxe casual. I love pairing my sequin tank with denim and Common Projects sneakers.

Top of my bucket list is… To visit Antarctica.

I envy people who… Have beautiful big kitchens for entertaining. I’m looking at buying a new place and it’s top of my checklist.

My ultimate dinner party guest would be… Kevin McCloud of TV show Grand Designs.

On my lust-have list right now is… Blush pink Common Projects sneakers.

My hidden talent is… I can build, and I love to build. I’m often found putting together shelving units at the workroom.

In my handbag right now is… MAC Fix+ [refreshing/finishing] spray. It’s a lifesaver.

My advice to my younger self would be… Enjoy your body; don’t sweat the small stuff.

The piece of clothing I’ve had the longest is… My black fur Queenie jacket. I wear it with jeans and sneakers and it goes with me to every winter event.

The song that always makes me want to dance is… Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice.

My biggest fashion disaster is… Overlooking sewing a button onto a dress during my very first Fashion Week show. Perhaps no one else noticed but I’ve never overlooked a detail like this again!

The best thing about autumn is… Wearing beautiful coats over jeans and a tee.

Most of my time is taken up by… Thinking about my business, concepting new collection designs and what I’m going to have for dinner that evening!
