Tell us the story behind your favorite wardrobe item
Candy: I have a million button front shirts - oversized, fitted, denim, vintage, gap/target cheapies & more than 75 jackets. You can really never go wrong with a button front & a great jacket. no matter what you pair it with on the bottom you look fab. I'm also a bit of a shoe freak. Go figure - I LOVE clothes!
What’s your most memorable ‘panic moment’?
Candy: Honestly, I'm not that sort. I'm pretty chill and my attitude is - it's really only clothing at the end of the day. I'm not responsible for someone's life or child or health so nothing can ever really be that bad.
What is your favorite era for fashion?
What was your big break?
Candy: A friend knew that I wanted to get into styling & connected me with Helmut Newton. He wanted someone to style and do simple production in Los Angeles. He was absolutely divine! A definite highlight.
Whose closet would you most like to raid?
Candy: Tilda Swinton, Kate Moss or my friend stylist/designer Natalie Saphier
Who are your favorite designers?
Candy: Phoebe Philo, Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo, Junya Watanabe, Stefano Pilati, Riccardo Tisci, Olivier Theyskens & John Galliano. I could go on & on.....and that's just the living ones! If i had to wear only one designer it would be Phoebe Philo.
