British accessories designer Lulu Guinness has opened up on her long fashion career, which began in 1989, commenting that even as a child she was artistic and always drawing something new. She hated being bored and always found inspiration from "camp" places for her art work: "I was born looking for something different, I always liked things very camp - musicals, movie stars. I'd always loved art - as a child I was constantly sketching and drawing faces. I was terrified of being bored."

Speaking on the first celebrity who she witnessed buying one of her pieces, Lula reveals that it was Madonna who first walked in to her store and picked out one of her iconic rose basket bags. The whole staff were thrilled by the experience and they "all screamed" once Madonna left: "Madonna! It was at our first shop, which opened in 1994, in Ledbury Road, west London. She was wearing a parka and had a bouncer in tow. She bought a rose basket bag and paid with a credit card that said M Ciccone. After she left, we all screamed."

Speaking on the many other famous stars who've worn her pieces, Lulu gushes that many impressive big names have worn her items and she's always just thrilled to see people who genuinely like her designs, especially those who are just beginning their careers: "Over the years, there's been so many: Judi Dench carried one of my bags to the Oscars, then there's Helena Bonham Carter, Paloma Faith, Emma Roberts... I'm just happy if they like them, I like contacting the 'beginning' girls, before they get huge; when they're not having loads of luxury goods delivered."
