Charlotte Kairua, Style Advisor

My style signifier is bright colours and anything with a cherry on it, it’s my personal logo at this point!

The last thing I bought and loved is my Darwen bag from Isabel Marant. It is the perfect college and travelling bag and is always complimented when I am wearing it.

My earliest fashion memory is getting a Roxy ski jacket when I was about 7. I wore it everyday, every winter and then even wore my sister’s once I couldn’t fit mine!

My style icon is Devon Lee Carlson. She is a trendsetter and always has the coolest looks. Anytime I see her wearing something I am immediately searching the internet for a dupe.

With time on my hands I go dancing with my friends. I love nights out around the city dancing until the sun comes up and having fun with my best mates.

Before I joined Costume I studied textile design in the NCAD. I am still a student and working towards getting my degree! I love art and designing and creating collections of fabrics is challenging but so rewarding.

My three favourite pieces from this season are The Isabel Marant Onilind Jacket - its such a wardrobe staple, the Chimi Aviators in brown which are fab for the Summer, and the Stella Forest Fiona Jeans in Bonbon - anything pink I am immediately obsessed with.

The podcast I'm listening to is Busy, Yet Pretty by Jadyn Hailey. It’s so motivating and positive and is the perfect listen every morning on the way to college or work.

The best book I've read this year is Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton. I learned so much from it and I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it.

The one destination I can't wait to return to is New York. I went to visit my sister there this year and I fell in love with the city. I’d love to live there some time.
