HONEY SWEET ELIAS

@honeysweetelias

1. You’re a Fashion Assistant at British Vogue - can you tell us a little bit about your role and what you love about it the most

My job is to work alongside all the fashion editors and make sure all their shoots are prepped and run smoothly and there to help on whatever they need for their projects/shoots. I don’t think there is just one thing I love the most about my role as it’s all great but one thing that I do know I love is watching the magic happen and knowing that I played a huge part in that magic.

2. WHO IS AN INSPIRATIONAL WOMAN IN YOUR LIFE AND WHY?

My cousin Rosa. We’ve spent every important moment in our lives growing together and without her I wouldn’t be half the woman I am today. She’s been through all my many lows and all many highs. She’s only a couple years younger than me and already doing incredible things. She inspires me to succeed at the best I can and pushes me to be a better person every day. She is one of the most incredible human beings I know. She’s taught me independence and growth and so many other things.

3. WHAT DOES INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY MEAN TO YOU?

It means love, happiness, success, greatness, togetherness and that we are powerful and magnificent and we have come a long way and I am proud to be a woman.

4. THIS YEAR’S THEME FOR IWD IS #CHOOSETOCHALLENGE - WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE?

I choose to challenge equality for coloured women.

5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE FROM MATILDE JEWELLERY AND WHY?

wouldn’t say I have a favourite piece. They are all so unique in their own way. It’s what makes MATILDE jewellery so special.
