A little Q&A with the designer:

 QWhat is your design inspiration? 

It always stays pretty constant. Houghton is inspired by Katharine Houghton Hepburn and her love for menswear. Each Season I get inspired by new things but the Houghton look is always easy, comfortable and sexy. 

QTell me two little known facts about you:

1. I love country music 2. I have at least 16 tattoos but I've lost count

QDescribe your personal style:

I love vintage and being comfortable I live between vintage kaftans and Houghton leather pants and a white T. 

QWhen did you know that you were going to design bridal:

It was a very natural progression from my Ready to Wear collection. My RTW always has ivory dresses and gowns and people really reacted to the simple but classic silhouettes as an alternative to the traditional 20yard tulle bridal gown. After my first collection, Fall/winter 2012 I decided to launch Houghton Bride since there was such a demand for the collection. 

QIf you could dress any celebrity, who would it be: 

ooh there's so many. I'm obsessed with Jane Fonda, Lena Dunham, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Connolly and Kate Bosworth

QWhat is the last great book that you read:

Just Kids, by Patti Smith...have read 3 times
