In this exclusive interview our Founder Nathalie Gaveau catches up with Véronique Forge-Karibian, Founder of the French site for working women Business O Feminin, to talk work/life balance, fashion, focus and how to get into the back to school mindset for the season ahead...


V: What are your tips for maintaining your zen during the busy 'back-to-school' period? 

N: The key is to organize well and take advantage of the summer holidays to sort out the essentials. Plan trips and important meetings, review plans for the last quarter and communicate your goals to the teams you manage. Suddenly, we'll find we have more time for sports and the spa, it's a virtuous circle.  

V: Who's been inspiring you this season?  

N: Jeff Bezos, he started out 15 years ago with a small online bookstore, was criticised for years by analysts and became a leader in cloud computing. Today Amazon is valued at $1000 billion. What audacity, what tenacity in his vision.

V: What quality do you admire most in women?  

N: Adaptability. Business woman, mother, wife, girlfriend, sportswoman, coach, every woman is plural and manages multiple tasks in a day, sometimes to a staggering extent.  

V: What's your daily routine like and how do you start your day?  

N: I don't really have a routine with my travels between London and Paris but I cannot live without an Earl Grey tea followed by an espresso and kisses from my husband and children first thing in the morning. A poached egg with avocado toast always tempts me and then it's on to emails, dashboards and the day begins.  

V: What are your workspace essentials?  

N: I'm a bit of a minimalist so I like a white or transparent desk with just my apple Macbook Pro on it. If possible, I like an open space with no walls around me and an inspiring view. From time to time, I'll light a candle like the La Française Sympa.  

V: Which books are by your bedside right now?  

N: The Love Dictionary of Freedom by Mathieu Laine and a pile of documents. I usually have books on all kinds on business topics. I've recently been reading the 2018 Goldman Sachs Millennial Insights study. 

V: Who are some of your favourite fashion designers?  

N: Chloé by Natacha Ramsay Levi, Diane Ducasse and always Saint Laurent.  

V: What about your 'can't live without' websites?  

N: I'm probably more into apps than sites. I use Yoga Studio for my yoga routine, Lumo Lift to help with my posture, Paleo Leap for paleo recipes, Les Echos, Elle, Bloomberg and of course Whatsapp, Instagram, Uber and Deliveroo.

V: What's your motto or favourite quote?

N: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” You must have ambition and persevere on your journey.

Slip dresses have had a very flashy upgrade. Yes it is Autumn, yes the weather is cold… I know! But quite frankly, fashion doesn’t care. This season, unlike the others, fashion is using bold colours and light fabrics for winter! I don’t know why but I’m slowly liking it. If you’re a bold statement maker kind of gal, you will love this neon satin dress trend. Half from the nineties, half from the eighties this trend is a perfect duo of the decades. Imagine your eighties neon tracksuits in a nineties slip dress. Yep! That’s the style. Your party style is ready miladies! #trend #neon #slipdress #dress #satin #silk #fashion #streetstyle #style

Louisa Drake is a force to be reckoned with. A fitness expert, business founder and a serious source of lifestyle inspo, Louisa recently launched LDM, a fitness and lifestyle brand built on the principles of her own inclusive training method and her no-nonsense approach to health and wellness.   

We caught up with her to find out more about LDM, her motivations and of course, her style both in and out of the studio…   

So how does your method work? How can LDM sessions influence your lifestyle?  

At LDM we focus on body confidence and effective training techniques that educate clients on what their individual bodies need. My Method offers a host of fitness disciplines – cardio, conditioning, resistance and stretch – to keep the mind and body guessing and strengthen the muscles you use daily.   

Our whole approach is to encourage confidence, so the Fitzrovia and Muswell Hill studios are a welcoming space where our instructors will calmly guide you through a class, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and well worked, but never worked up and stressed.  

Who can take part in LDM classes?  

LDM classes are accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience, fitness level, shape or size. We have two boutique studios in London, where you can access small group classes and private training daily. We also have LDM online video subscriptions and range of fitness equipment and apparel for taking part at home.  

What inspired you to launch LDM – tell us about your journey...   

After a professional dance career I started to transition into teaching dance and fitness. I was known for my unique style and had several disciplines under my belt but I realised there was something lacking from the workouts I was doing as a client at other gyms and studios.  

I saw a gap for doing things my way and created LDM. After combining the best bits of popular disciples such as yoga, HIIT, Pilates to name just a few I created my signature total body workout that ticks all the boxes in one session – the Shape Changer, the perfect balance of cardio and conditioning material.   

Next month we celebrate our first birthday at our Fitzrovia studio which offers a range of LDM classes that are constantly being fine tuned to suit our clients’ needs.  

What does the word ‘wellness’ mean to you?  

Wellness really sums up being at your optimal best physically and mentally. For me it’s about finding the right balance – time to focus on my changing needs, to honour my own rhythms and have the energy to achieve everything I need.  

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

My clients. Most mornings I’m either up early teaching group classes or I’m with a private client. The occasion I have a morning free, I’ll top up on sleep or schedule some time for myself on the mat.  

How important do you think physical health is to how happy and confident we feel?

Massively important. It should be the main reason you choose to work out and aesthetics are the bonus. The natural high we get from exercise is what keeps you committed.  

What about fashion and style – can what we wear make us happy?  

Absolutely, wearing something that helps you feel happy will be the reason your posture improves which will then be part of the reason your confidence improves and you carry yourself differently. You can express yourself through fashion and your own unique take on it. 

What are your feel-good outfits for work, the weekend and going out?  

I spend a lot of time in activewear and when I'm working out and training clients it’s all about supportive, feel-good fabrics. I select a sweat-wicking product that’s going to work hard for me when I’m back to back and versatile items that mean after a quick change I’m ready to go from studio to meeting.   

When I’m off-duty it’s a mix of denim, fun prints, slogan tees and a vintage feel is always present in my style. For going out I add some standout accessories, switch a trainer for shoe and opt for a dress or cool jumpsuit.  

What about your favourite brands?

Activewear brands such as Sweaty Betty, Lululemon, Lucas Hugh, Nike and Adidas keep me supported and stylish. For tees and sweaters I like British brand Double Trouble Gang – we collaborated on some limited edition LDM sweaters & hoodies. I also love brands such as Etre Cecile and Sezane for an injection of fun prints and slogan pieces.   

Free People, Reformation, ADAY, Faithfull the brand, Ganni and the Vampire’s Wife are labels I gravitate towards. I have some great jackets from Zoe Karssen, Whistles and Acne and my accessories are a mix of high street, vintage and investment pieces from Hill and Friends, Sezane, Laura Lee and Missoma.  

I’m often in trainers by Adidas, Nike and APL and I’m currently loving the Stella McCartney x Adidas Parley shoes made from recycled ocean plastics – they work for all cardio based workouts. Veja make eco-friendly Parisian cool trainers that I like for off-duty and I also like Russell & Bromley, Birkenstock, Soludos, Hobbs and Miu Miu.  

What’s next for you and for LDM? 

Plans are underway to open a bigger standalone LDM studio in London where clients can still benefit from small boutique group fitness and private training with more space and amenities. We have some exciting opportunities in the pipeline and I’m working hard to build up our online LDM video offerings, so we are accessible not just in London but anywhere and at anytime. Watch this space…
