“India is one of my closest and oldest friends, and I’m godmother to her daughter Domino.” -MC
Bahamas-based designer, entrepreneur and mother of five India Hicks shares five minutes with us in our latest blog.
How long have you known Marie-Chantal and how did you meet?
I can’t remember the actual moment I met Marie-Chantal, which is good, it might be a bit creepy if I did. But I do remember being at her wedding. She was the perfect bride, marrying her prince. I, on the other hand, had just cut off my waist length hair and looked shocking. I especially remember the flowers. They were everywhere, in vast oversized displays, smelling fantastic.
Why did you choose Marie-Chantal to be Domino’s godmother?
Because if you can manage 5 children of your own, run a successful business, be a remarkable hostess and always know the right bit of harmless gossip, you would make a wonderfully spirited God Mother.
What are your and Domino’s favourite pieces from the Marie-Chantal SS13 collection?
How could we possibly have a favourite? But anything that gets us out of knickers and a motorbike helmet has to be an improvement.
What do you enjoy about motherhood?
Motherhood made me feel complete. There is something very special knowing you are one of the most important person in someone’s life. There is always something very daunting about that too!
