(design.inspiration) annabelle poustie








So which one are you? Until I started scrolling through all the myriad designs - both shape and fabric - I didn't realise how much a bag said about your own preferences. Hmmm. I think I'm "basket bag" in "motif". I love it's simplicity, but then there are those fabrics. Oh, those fabrics! What a gorgeous selection Annabelle Poustie from bsirius has created.

Which five words best describe you? Determined, Optimistic, Messy, Generous, Energetic. What was your first job and what path have you taken since then? When l was 18 l opened up a vintage shop called Octopussy. It was here that I worked out that retail was not for me, and later started my pursuits in wholesale.
What’s your proudest achievement? Getting out of bed at 5.30 this morning to go to the gym. It's been a long time coming.
What’s been your best decision? Once l was trapped in a hotel fire in Hong Kong. When an exit was finally cleared (the fire was in the fire escape) everyone was sent onto the roof. I refused and headed downstairs and escaped, while every one on the roof ended up in hospital with smoke inhalation amongst other things.
Who inspires you? Hanna Werning
What are you passionate about? Mastering traditional Indian cooking. This is a life-long mission!
What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt? Don’t leave your phone in the veggie crisper of the fridge, it's really hard to find!
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? Definitely Brett and Germaine from Flight of the Conchords.
What dream do you still want to fulfil? To visit Greenland to see the northern lights.
What are you reading? The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. which won the Man Booker prize 2008.
