Today I had a great meeting with Regan Iglesia, global marketing vice president from Waterford Wedgwood, New York. I’ve been designing for Waterford for many years now. We went through final samples for the collection, we will launch next February in Frankfurt.

Regan and his international marketing team are very excited about the new collection. I cannot wait for the launch as I have been working on the collection for more than a year.

In the afternoon I discussed the music for my forthcoming London Fashion Week catwalk show with my son Max, who has produced the show music for the past three years. Max has just completed a year at university in France. Odette and I are thrilled to have him back home in Dublin, especially his mother!

My fit/house model Danni is leaving us to spend a month in New York. The past week I have been casting for a new model. It’s tricky trying to find someone new to work with. No luck so far! We will all miss Danni, but know she will do so well in New York.
