I recently had a chowdown with the wonderfully talented Diane Birch at the Hoss Intropia store in Regents Street.  Hoss Intropia invited me along to interview her and have a look around their collection.
I really liked the ethos and vibe of Hoss Intorpia, so relaxed, and yet so traditional.
Have a look at some of their things HERE!
Diane is a wonderful fit for the brand, both have a independence, and a style that is relaxed and yet extravagant.  Hoss Intropia seem to be the perfect town to country clothes, casual enough that you won’t ever seem over dressed, but chic and individual enough to always be comment worthy.
Unfortunately on the night I had the remains of Post Fashion Month Flu, so I didn’t like to stay around too long incase I infected anyone, not least Diane, who was performing in store later, however you can see what I missed HERE!
I have been addicted to her Album ‘Bible Belt’ ever since.
I did manage to do the interview, although breathing as far from Diane as possible. I thought that instead of the usual boring ‘fashion interview’ questions we have all read a million times, I would go with the much loved Proust Questionaire.  Here are her very interesting answers…
