Favourite piece & why? How could I choose just one piece. I really do love my entire collection so instead I'll talk about the pieces I have been wearing the most recently…The dress I wear the most is the New York. It is the most falttering dress I have ever worn with the rouching able to hide multiple areas. The new Spring Bali Vest is fast becoming a staple in my wardrobe as I throw it over anyting I am wearing whether it’s a white Amalfi tee or a Byron singlet.
Favourite quote? “Love like you have never been hurt, dance like no-one's watching and live like it's your last day on earth,”
How would you spend your perfect day? Going for a run by Bondi beach, breakfast with friends, coming into the design studio for an event and finishing the evening with a champagne cocktail and surrounded by family and friends.
Best part of what you do? Seeing a customer come out of the dressing room looking and feeling amazing... I get such a thrill when a customer comments on how much they love a piece in the collection.

Background I was born in the UK and have many years experience working in guest services, hospitality and the airline industry where I was lucky to travel to all corners of the globe.
Favourite piece & why? It would have to be my Adelaide pants - After undergoing abdominal surgery earlier this year I couldn't wear anything with a tight waistband. My Adelaide pants were so comforting - just like a hug!
Favourite Quote? Always look on the bright side of life :)
How would you spend your perfect day? I would ski the snowy hills in Canada with my Hubby, then go back to our log cabin, take a hot bubble bath and then settle in front of a roaring log fire with a large glass of red!!

Favourite piece & why? I would say my favourite pieces are the New York and Manhattan dresses I like the way they hang/drape and the quality and feel of the material. I like to see you ladies out in an elegant dress. However all KP pieces are of great quality and style!
Favourite Quote? From Forrest Gump “Momma always said Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get”
How would you spend your perfect day?

Then a lazy evening catching up with family and friends.
