We thought it was about time you got to know The Leopards in a little more detail. First up, we have our very own 'Winter Gamine', Manina.
1. I can't start the day without ...
A delicious green matcha tea from Japan, and a Pilates session.
2. What's the best thing about your job?
The best thing about my job is being able to help clients transform the way they feel about themselves, and seeing their excitement as they realise how amazing they can look. It is also such a joy to indulge my favourite habit - which is looking out for new shops and designers. I can go shopping with no feelings of guilt at all!
3. What are your favourite spots in London and why?
I am loving exploring areas of London, which I didn’t know before, on my bicycle. I'm a Chelsea girl, and it's only in the last few months that I have discovered the joys of East London - cycling along the canal from Regent’s Park all the way to Stratford, via Camden Lock, Broadway Market and Victoria Park. If I were young, I would definitely live in Hackney.
4. What is your most precious item in your wardrobe?
The most precious item in my wardrobe is definitely a 15 year old pair of Marithe et Francois Girbaud black trousers. They are so brilliant - cropped, funky and versatile. I wear them so often that I'm terrified that they are going to fall to pieces!
5. What shops do you rely on?
My favourite shops at the moment are Dorothee Schumacher for interesting updated classics, Joseph, Robert Clergerie for fabulous shoes and boots, and a tiny discovery called Sixty 6 in Marylebone, which sells really fun, colourful clothes that are a bit different.
