Musician and actress, Paloma Faith, chats to fashion designer, Roland Mouret, about the parallels between their creative practices. They share insights into how they create their work, develop ideas and how creativity is evolving in quarantine.

Paloma Faith’s last three albums have gone double platinum in the UK, and she won the BRIT Award for British Female Solo Artist in 2015. Her stunning fourth album, The Architect, marked her first UK number-one album.

Roland Mouret’s journey has been an unlikely route to becoming one of the best-loved names in British fashion – not least because he is French. After 10 years living in Paris as a model, stylist and art director, Mouret moved to London to start a fashion collection. The designer had no formal training, but knew he had the precision to cut, the skill to drape and the courage to combine the two. Today, his Galaxy dress remains a bestseller and it paved the way for his timeless design aesthetic – modern, elegant designs that slip seamlessly into women’s complex lives.
