I've interviewed a lot of people whose work I've admired and loved over the years: Anna Sui, Paul van Dyk, Giles Peterson, Mika, Kelly Rowland; but I've never actually had the chance to have dinner in the home of someone celebrated and famous, until about a week ago when I dined in the home of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada.

And in case you were wondering, despite the dynasty that she has built, Agatha is incredibly down-to-earth and a bunch of fun. And rumour has it she's expanding her empire to Asia... ;o)
P.S.: Hi Agatha, Miren & team. If you're reading this, hire me!
