We caught up with curator Cassie Beadle to discuss her personal style and how she grew her creative business as she models the resort 19 collection.
Describe your personal style in 3 words?
If you could sum up Preen Line as a brand in a sentence, what would that go like?
Since becoming Curator at Cob Gallery, what would you say has been a career highlight?
Highgate, Hampstead and Camden. There’s a part of me that still feels like an imposter coming home to West London.
Where in London do you call home?
Currently, I am living in the St. Paul’s Painters studios in Baron’s Court. They are quite possibly the most magical buildings in London - and any hardened Londoner would have noticed them at some point. Spiritually, I feel most at home on Hampstead Heath.
In terms of shopping, impulse buy or investment item?
Which artists have inspired your journey so far?
Without thinking too much - and historically - Gala Dali, Gerda Taro, Claude Cahun, Cindy Sherman. But this list could go on and is certainly not limited to fine art..I am always inspired by the drive, commitment and achievements of the artists we work with - Nina Mae Fowler, Faye Wei Wei and Joe Sweeney, in particular - I often feel like a proud mum.
Saturday night: going out or staying in?
Depends if the moon is full or not...
Best piece of advice you've been given but completely ignored?
"Don't wear that..."
This is quite possibly the hardest question! I’m currently captivated by Carolyn Bessette Kennedy - a style so innately elegant and understated. I would be in a world of joy in Miuccia Prada’s wardrobe. However, I have always been undeniably drawn to a style overstatement - Peggy Guggenheim, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth I and Marchesa Casati are all icons for me- and I wouldn’t say no to a rummage in Liberace’s wardrobe for an hour with a good friend!
