Fairfax & Favor are oh-so excited to introduce a rather special addition to the Mini Windsor range. We've teamed up with our gorgeous girl-friend Amy, bringing to you the new Amy Neville Collection. To celebrate the launch of this ultra- cutesy, limited edition luxurious little bag in rich ravishing red, we caught up with Amy, the fun-loving fashion queen to talk about model life, naughty eating habits and her new bag design.

When did you begin your modelling career?

It all started for me when I was a baby, my mum signed me up to modelling because I loved the camera so much, and it all went from there. I moved to London at 18 to pursue a modelling career, but it wasn't an easy ride. If you read my blog www.amynevfashiondiaries.com there are a few posts on 'Dear Diary' explaining my journey with my whole career. I've worked hard to get where I am today, I will continue to do so.

When did you come across Fairfax & Favor?

 I came across Fairfax & Favor on Facebook about 4 years ago when a friend tagged me in a post about them looking for a model. I got in contact, shot the campaign, and our relationship started from there. Since then, I've had a blast in Morocco shooting the SS/17 campaign, and now i'm really happy to be working together on this amazing collaboration.


What part of being a model do you love the most?

 I love the creativity of modelling, how your look can change so much, simply by working with different photographers, stylists and make-up artists.

I have learnt so much over the years, especially travelling round the world with different brands. It is NOT just about being 'pretty', you have to stand out, I believe personality is key, you have to be remembered.


In another life, if you weren’t a model, what would you be?

Ooh, now this is a tricky question! Maybe, if I had worked a little harder at school a Doctor. But if I'm honest, fashion will always be my love. I love the way an outfit can not only change your image, but people's perception of you.


What is it that gets you out of bed in the morning?

The fact I love my job definitely helps my motivation in the morning. Being freelance, you can never just sit back & relax however in demand you are. At the beginning of this year, I lost someone very close to me. This has made me want to succeed in what I do even more.


What is your favourite naughty snack?

Haribo and Domino's... not your average model diet, but I am a sucker for junk food, I can never stick to healthy eating!


Name 5 fun facts about you that people may not know.

  1. I am a Leo (Got a thing for star signs...)
  2. I'm a true country girl at heart, even though I now feel like a proper 'Londoner' after 9 years in the city.
  3. My absolute favourite place has to be Lake Como, I visited for the first time this month on a job. Sometimes you just connect with a place, it was truly magical.
  4. I HATE fish. They make me scared of going in the sea, weird I know.
  5. I am a sugar addict. I was with my friend Freddy on a flight to Russia a few months ago and I ate 3 huge sharing bags of Haribo before take-off... she couldn't believe I had finished 1, let alone 3!


If we were to have a sneaky peek inside your handbag, what would we find?

 My keys, which I am always losing. My Laura Mercier Secret Camaflouge which I swear by for breakouts. My mini Jo Malone perfume (travel size) is perfect for spraying on the go, I always like to smell nice.


What do you love most about the Mini Windsor?

As I am constantly on the go, I am not a fan of large bags. I prefer a mini bag that you can wear as a crossover.  I went for red as I love a statement piece, red surprisingly goes with pretty much every colour, perfect for styling or brightening up an outfit. The suede and leather combo is just gorgeous, I hope you babes are going to love it as much as I do.


What would be your favourite outfit to style with the Mini Windsor?

I absolutely love biker boots and leather pants, I basically live in this look in the winter. For summer, denim shorts and tees or cute dresses. The bag is perfect for any outfit day and night... I can't wait to see how you all style it too!
