Ponystep talk to Pippa Brooks from Shop at Maison Bertaux
Pippa Brooks is the face of Shop at Maison Bertaux and what a face! Take a look at the video above, one of the many she shoots and edits, they're fashion gems and always a treat to watch. She was interviewed in Ponystep recently which gave an interesting insight into Pippa's life pre-Shop at Maison B and how the shop itself came about:
So I scraped through my degree, along the way realising I was quite into performing. My first performance was at 'Kinky Gerlinky'. My friend Lucy made some 8ft high lipsticks and I worked out an act and did a song with my friend Brad - very disco derivative!
Sinead O'Connor was around, Amanda Lear did a guest spot, there was Naomi Campbell strutting the catwalk - it was a 'you could do anything' sort of time! Of course I didn't need much encouragement to work my way on to the stage! I just had a brilliant time - sleeping in the day and partying at night with wigs atop head, a pair of platforms and a bra and pants in-between!
Max [Pippa's partner] was working in a basement store in Covent Garden under this crazy South American woman selling John Galliano's graduate collection amongst other things. He got me a job there and we started plotting our own shop.
