Delightfully Posh

Auckland-born fashion designer Emilia Wickstead, 26, talks to the Telegraph’s Samantha Cameron about low-key style and “how to do stealth chic”. Wickstead says: “When I was 14 I moved from New Zealand to Milan, which was quite a big shock — I saw an enormous contrast in how women dressed. I design classic pieces with a twist. It’s about taking a shift dress, and changing it with an interesting neckline, or an unusual hemline. Then all you need to do is put on a simple pair of platforms. Prada and Lanvin are labels that embody stealth chic.” Wickstead has featured in UK Vogue and Tatler and was described in a recent video on Italian Vogue’s website as a “posh young talent”. The wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron, and former creative director of high-end luxury goods brand Smythson, is also a fan of Wickstead. She lives in London.
