Tell us a bit more about your work and styling

I was educated in Fashion at Southampton, before going onto work at a men's magazine. It was here where I feel I learnt to appreciate and spot impeccable tailoring, and I've continued to use this skill within my work since.

When it comes to my approach for styling... whether I am dressing a celebrated woman for their work on television or getting them ready for the red carpet, I aim to always put together a look that are flattering and stylish.

My secret in doing this, it focusing on how a person wants to feel, not just what they want to look like. If you want to learn more about my tips and tricks I publish a weekly newsletter called Angie's Edit.

Tea or Coffee?

Coffee. Since moving to Sydney I am now a complete coffee snob and I allow myself 1 or 2 a day, my favourite place is actually further up the coast from us and is a book shop in Avalon called Bookachino. Closer to home we go to Barrel 1, and my order is an Almond Flat White/

Marmalade or Jam?

Jam. Rhubarb and ginger jam reminds me of my mum but it's not something I eat unless it's a rainy day or i'm feeling a bit under the weather. Nothing beats tea and toast with lots of butter and jam.

Lie in or Early Bird?

Early bird. There is nothing better than getting up before the sun and walking along the beach, I still piece myself over where we live and that i get to do this everyday.

Book or Newspaper

Neither, Audible. I have a very short attention span and find that Audible works as I can listen and do something else at the same time.

Country or Coast?

Coast. Always the coast. There's a lovely song called Coastline by Hollow Coves that my boyfriend sent me when I decided to move to Sydney and the words about living near the coast really resonate with me.

Summer or Winter?

Summer. I lived in Cyprus as a child and when we found out we were moving back to the UK I remember being so excited that I'd get to wear jeans again, and not just for a few days a year. That soon wore off and I've been chasing the sunshine ever since.

Denim or Dress?

Denim. I love denim and I could wear it day in and day out. I'm a big fan of wearing a double denim look and white denim with a white tee. I enjoy rummaging in vintage shops for denim until I find the perfect pair. In Sydney my favourite vintage denim haunt is Knap Store in Newport.

Cardigan or Jumper?

Jumper. Jumpers all year round for me. In the summer when the night draws in and you've been toast on the beach and need something to throw on over a pair of shorts or in the Winter with vintage denim, chunky boots and a biker jacket.
