Desi Lazarova: What is your cocktail of choice?

Helen Lawrence: Dry Martini with a gin and lemon twist.

DL: How do you balance work with home life?

DL: Your house is burning down, what do you grab?

HL: My great grandmother’s antique parasols and the photographs my dad took of my mum when she was 24.

DL: Most influential moment in your life to date?

HL: A very tough tutorial with Louise [Wilson] on the Masters [in Fashion from Central Saint Martins]. She said something to me that I think about most days at work. “It’s just a fucking sweater."

HL: My mum.

DL: What motivates you?

HL: Developing an idea into something real.

DL: Favourite artist/s?
