Tell us a little bit about yourself: I am a woman of extremes - either active (walking, gardening, traveling near and far, exercising, working) or homebody (cooking, relaxing, eating, playing board games with friends) - so, for me, clothing has to be comfortable. I have a real passion for fashion and how clothing is made: one of my hobbies is making my own clothes.
What you love about ES: I found ES when I started making my own clothing, and I was searching for inspiration. I instantly became obsessed by the relaxed shapes and timeless pieces, but frustrated that I could never find patterns that would give me that look. After a particularly difficult time in my personal life, I decided that I would treat myself to some of the pieces I had been pouring over for the last three years. After placing my first order, I was thrilled to win a voucher and promptly ordered some more pieces. I now have a dedicated ES section in my wardrobe, and I adore each piece. I think my most worn pieces are the Annie Shirt Dress (that I got with my prize voucher) and the Clyde Work Pant, both in black. England is mostly cold and unpredictable, and both of those items of clothing are perfect for work or relaxing at home. I have shared ES with my mother, who is now as big a fan as I am.
