Why do you support Jeans for Genes Day 2016? 

I have been supporting Jeans for Genes Day for about 4 years and I love being  part of the campaign. I create jeans so the partnership works really well. It is an amazing and inspiring charity.

What talent did you inherit from your parents?

My athleticism and fast metabolism!

Do you ever double denim?

Yes, I love denim and was wearing double denim for filming!

Would you ever quadruple denim?

I haven’t ever quadrupled denim but for this shoot let’s go way overboard and overdo it in denim! I do actually own a denim bikini which is a strong look, bring on summer!

How many pairs of jeans do you own?

Too many to know the number, at a guess between 60 and 70!

What is the most you have ever spent on a pair of jeans?

I would never spend a lot on a pair of jeans! 

If you could design a pair of jeans who would you most want to see wearing them?

Kate Moss – who else!

Who is your ultimate denim poster boy or girl?

Lucky Blue.

What is your message to all the schools and organisations that take part in Jeans for Genes Day? 

Get involved! Be creative and take advantage of a non-uniform day! OVERDO IT in denim!

What will you doing on Friday 23rd September?

Wearing my jeans and supporting Jeans for Genes Day!

If you were stranded on a desert island which three items would you take with you?

Denim hat, rope and a box of matches – how sensible?!

Jenners for Genes!

Jeans for Genes Day is celebrating our 20th year of fundraising for children with genetic disorders this year, and to kick off our campaign we held a launch party at iconic Edinburgh store, Jenners, on Princes Street.

Working in partnership with Jenners, a House of Fraser store, we planned and prepped the party to a tee to launch our new limited edition fashion t-shirt exclusively in-store on 9th July. #JennersforGenes

To help turn the event in to a real party special guests X-Factor’s Nicholas McDonald and Scottish singing sensation Tallia Storm were in attendance, giving speeches, live performances and taking photos with guests. The pair even posed in the Jenners shop window to the delight of their fans.
