Fashion designer Madeleine Thompson shares her fashion favourites

What’s the last piece of clothing you bought? The last important piece I bought was my wedding dress from Chloe. It is magical and I’m already scheming of ways I can wear it again.

Best-ever bargain? A beautiful butter-soft leather bag from the souk in Marrakech.

Who has great style? Poppy Delevigne always looks beautiful. Whether she is on the red carpet or dressed down for the weekend, she’s ever so stylish.

Name your favourite high street shop. One of them is Jane Davidson in Edinburgh. Also, Austique in London has some fabulous brands.

What are you addicted to buying? As I recently married, I would have to say stationery embossed with my new initials.

Any fashion disasters you’d care to tell us about? I grew up in the Nineties when we were quite grungy – there were a lot of checked shirts with jeans and Dr Martens. It didn’t really work for me.

What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe? I live in my own Madeleine Thompson maxi dresses, and this season it has to be the Lula dress. I can wear this all day at work and dress it up for any evening event.

• Thompson’s SS12 collection will be available to purchase on My Wardrobe ( and Net a Porter ( from the end of February.
