Desreen Brooks, 32, Job Director of Saint Luke Artist Management, @stlukeartists
What is a typical day at work for you?
Lots of calls, negotiating, sales, planning and managing some of the most innovative and inspiring make-up artists, stylists, and photographers in the industry.
How long have you been doing this job?
I have 12 years in the industry, but only recently set up Saint Luke Artist Management with close friend Cathy Butterworth, giving us a combined 25 years worth of experience.
What is your go-to outfit for a night out?
I usually base my outfit around a jacket and a bag I want to wear. Currently I am getting excited about my summer wardrobe and wearing lots of pastels, prints and neon.
And for a really important work meeting?
When I want to feel tall and important I wear an silk blouse and slip on my Stella McCartney navy suede boots, this gives me the confidence I need and they are so comfortable. My Mulberry handbag always makes me feel more ‘business’.
Where do you go for your style inspiration?
I forget about all the things swirling around in my head and open my eyes and look at people, places, colour, and textiles.
Whose wardrobe would you love to raid?
I would love to raid Coco Chanel’s wardrobe right now, as I am in need of some classic, timeless skirts and jackets. But when I want to party, it has to be Rihanna’s.
What is your favorite eBay find ever?
Some boucle fabric in a really bright blue that I had made into my favourite go to jacket (see pic above).
What is your favorite piece on the eBay Fashion Outlet right now?
All the swimwear sold by Figleaves, it is making me think of summer!
What is your dream get away?
I love South America; North Brazil has got to be my favourite.
