Little blurb about me: I started my company Lazy Oaf back 2001, a company renowned for it’s fun, weird and nostalgic prints. It has morphed from a small beginning to a bit of a monster but I love it. A bit about me, I am short, change my hair colour constantly, wear stupid glasses and have a dog called Bob.Name:Gemma Shiel Age:35 Location:London Occupation:Fashion Designer
In my free time I am most likely:
To be trying to get my hands on a bacon sarnie and walking my dog. I often try to combine the two.
Trend I'd love to bring back:
Luckily for me I try and do this all the time when designing. But I love a rolled down sock into a tube shape round your ankle, used to do this all the time at school!
What does BABY-G mean to me?:
I love BABY-G watches and had them in several colours years ago. They lasted ages and being a very clumsy person, always stayed in good shape! When I needed an update I bought a new strap!
My girl crush is:
Sharon Rooney in My Mad Fat Diary. This show has made me laugh and cry and she is amazing in it.
Top tip for achieving your dreams:
Be determined to do it your way. It’s good to set yourselves small goals, no one is a success overnight! Also see each mistake as a positive, I have made every mistake going but it is very rare I make the same mistake again!
