WATCH: Sophia Neophitou Talks to Val Garland, Ana Khouri and Jowy Maasdamme at MATCHESFASHION.COM, 5 Carlos Place

When four inspirational, intelligent women come together – we sit and listen. It really is simple as that. Last night, in honour of Val Garland’s new bookcalled Validated coming out, our Editrix-in-chief Sophia Neophitou talked to the make-up queen herself, along with jewellery designer Ana Khouri and illustrator Jowy Maasdamme at Matches Fashion’s 5 Carlos Place flagship, about all thing creative. The topics include the importance of collaboration, and the beauty of the work-in-process whilst creating all that they do.

The highlights include a fabulous tit-bit from the beginning of Val Garland’s career with  Nick Knight (who was in the audience) and Lady Neophitou comparing the life of a stylist to that of a squirrel. “When you’re a creative person, ideas are everywhere. Everywhere you go, you see things.” Word.
