Desi Lazarova: What's your cocktail of choice?
Lauren Lake: Mojito.
DL: How do you balance work with home life?
LL: I love doing what I do, so I don't really class it as work. But I do find time to wind down, relax and have a good time with my friends a few nights a week.
DL: Your house is burning down, what do you grab?
LL: That's a tricky one. Probably my hard drive and my pink shearling coat - a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making it.
DL: Most influential moment in your life to date?
LL: Having my pink shearling coat featured in British Vogue.
DL: Who would you say knows you best?
LL: My best friend and flatmate Merle. We've lived together for three years now and she knows what I'm going to do before I have even thought about it.
DL: What motivates you?
LL: I have a lot of ambition and drive to succeed and I owe this to my parents. They have taught me that I should always follow my dream and that no dream is too big. I feel this is my motivation.
DL: Favourite artist?
LL: Jenny Saville.
DL: Personal hero/inspiration?
LL: John Galliano and Alexander McQueen.
