How do you two know each other?
Susan: We were introduced by a close friend when Stefani was the head designer for Nicole Farhi.
How long have you worked together?”
Susan: I initially worked with Stefanï on the very first campaign for Monreal and have continued to ever since- on and off.
What is your daily routine?”
Stefanï: I get up early, around 5.30am. Depending on my workload, I try to fit in a cardio class at the gym or hit some balls at the Campden Hill Lawn Tennis Club. Breakfast is an important meal for me- usually Muesli or yogurt with berries and some green tea. My day at work starts at 8am.
Susan: First thing I do when I wake up is change into my workout clothing and do a session of either yoga, weights or kick boxing for 1-1.5 hours, then I check my emails whilst drinking a green smoothie made with Alchemy Superblends and plan my day.
What is your favourite part of London?”
Stefani: I love the neighbourhood of Notting Hill – this is where I first landed when I moved to London from New York in 2003. It reminded me a lot of Greenwich Village in Manhattan which was my home for 11 years. This time of year? It’s got to be Wimbledon though!
Susan: West London where I spent my formative years, The Serpentine and Gallery and South Kensington where the golden triangle of museums are – The V&A, Natural History Museum and Science Museum.
