As a busy mum of two young kids and co-founder of Maman, Kate loves being able to bring her sense of easy dressing mixed with a bit of ‘rock-chic’ to the office. No two days are the same for Kate, as she juggles all facets of the growing Maman business, but her biggest reward remains being on the floor and knowing she has made someone feel fantastic.
Favourite Maman Brands – Zadig et Voltaire for their blazers and pants, Ulla Johnson for a beautiful printed dress, Xirena for basics, and Ba&sh for off-duty cool.
Wardrobe Staples – Lately it has been my Xirena Rex pants (I have them in most colours) paired with a crisp white shirt like Anine Bing Mika Shirt or Citizens of Humanity Kayla Shirt. I do love a great pair of denim jeans – Cindy by PAIGE are a favourite cut, a floral Ulla Johnson top, Philippe Model Temple Sneakers and topped off with a Zadig et Voltaire Blazer. Always with my Louve phone case strapped to my body!

Wardrobe Staples - A lot of my workday involves moving stock around, so my wardrobe needs to be practical and comfortable. Velvet t-shirts with jeans; my go-to's being the AG Denim Ex-Boyfriend Slim and always teamed back with Philippe Model sneakers. For a pretty dress RIXO is always my first choice.
Current Maman Wish List - All the new season product is landing in store now, so my list is endless to be honest!
Style inspiration - This comes from everywhere. We have very stylish women that come into store and its always interesting to see what outfits they put together. I haven’t got a style icon as such but love to get inspiration from movies like A Single Man, Tom Ford's movie which was beautifully styled.
Style advice for our Maman Women - I feel most of our customers know what they want, and the team are always there to help and give advice. I believe in getting your clothes tailored if they don’t quite fit and always having your outfit freshly ironed.
