Spotted in Please: Clio Peppiatt

At Please, we just can’t get enough of new talent – and it’s even better when they fall straight into our lap! After Mary Benson, London fashion designer Clio Peppiatt is the second designer we discovered via our « Cool I’m Eighteen Now » issue, in the « Prom Queen » fashion story shot by Kristin Vicari and styled by Jeanie Annan-Lewin. That yellow fringed dress really stole the show! We chat to the 24-year-old South Londoner about her teenage years…

Were you more of a good girl or a difficult teenager?

Definitely more of a difficult teenager… I went to a small, religious girls school which was very strict – it would’ve been difficult not to be a bit naughty!

The soundtrack of your teenagehood?

CD’s I remember owning as an early teenager were Destiny’s Child – Survivor Album, the first Britney Album, N.E.R.D – In Search Of, J-Lo circa 2001

Your style icon at the time?

Regina George (in Mean Girls)

If you were 18 again, what would you do differently?

Probably listen to my mum a bit more, but there’s lots I wouldn’t change for anything. Those intense friendships last for the rest of your life and I definitely had a lot of fun!
