How do you like to dress your daughters and what are your favourite brands to buy for them?
It really depends on the occasions, although in most cases I like them to look girly. My favourite brands? Too many.

You have chosen to donate to The Children’s Cancer Foundation charity. Can you tell us about this charity and why it is important to you?
For over 25 years, Children’s Cancer Foundation has been a driving force to support patients, their families, the doctors, the nurses, the hospitals and the public at large in the fight against paediatric cancers. Their mission, vision and values resonate with me and my husband.
