Madeleine Thompson




How do you describe to people what you do and your design style?
I design for the girl that likes to look great even on off duty moments from Saturday brunch to a walk in the park to the Monday morning Starbucks run.

What sort of comments do you get about your designs?
My focus is on elegance & simplicity while still looking fresh, never fussy.  I like to experiment with different textures and of utmost importance of course, is the feel of the fabric against the skin.  Being comfortable is something that I put huge emphasis on as a designer.
