Name Kimberley Golding

Location Hackney, London

Occupation Children’s clothes designer

What are you working on right now?
I am really excited about my new designs for tights! I’ve been making loads of drawings and patterns and looking forward to seeing them in real life!

Who do you want to be when you grow up?
A kind of nice dictator.

Do you have any odd creative rituals?
I have to listen to music while I’m working. I scroll through Pinterest last thing at night to get some inspiration while I’m asleep.

Describe your most inspiring working environment…
Alone with a stereo, fast internet and lots of daylight, with a Yo Sushi-style conveyor belt of yummy sushi and juice running through the room.

What are you obsessed with?
I am a very superficial person and love fun pop culture and silly things, but I’m really into nature too and native/national costumes. I love natural fabrics like wool, leather, wood and marble.

What’s on your bedside table?
The closest table to the bed is the dressing table and I have a scented candle (lavender) and a homemade spray with lavender and ylang ylang to make the bedroom calm and ready to sleep.

What’s your idea of luxury?
Now that I’m a parent definitely it’s being alone.
