2017 is shaping up to be a year of firsts for fashion industry veteran Megan Gale. She welcomed her first daughter just six weeks ago, and now the 42-year-old is embarking on a new venture, she's the face of Tiffany & Co.'s brand new Metro watch.
InStyle Australia chats to Megan about timeless style, juggling work with being a mother, and the best advice she has ever received...
InStyle: Can you tell us about your new partnership with Tiffany & Co.?
Gale: Tiffany & Co. approached me to collaborate on the launch of their new Metro watch and I have to say it was one of those projects that I was instantly excited about and so keen to be a part of. I’ve always loved the Tiffany’s brand so to work with them on launching such a beautiful range of timepieces was an honour.
InStyle:Congratulations on the birth of your daughter Rosie! How has your life changed since having two children?
Gale:It’s much busier that’s for sure! Luckily Shaun has time off from football at the moment and he is such an amazing father, which makes everything a lot easier. She’s such a darling and River is thrilled to be a big brother!
InStyle: A timeless watch is something every woman should own, what other pieces in your wardrobe do you consider timeless?
Gale: Several pieces - A tailored blazer, a trench coat, a classic black dress and high heel pumps in nude and black.
InStyle: Tiffany & Co. is synonymous with New York. Where are your favourite places to shop and eat in New York?
Gale: I adored exploring New York the two times that I visited and love finding places to eat or drink that not many people know about . Two of my favourites were The Loop Sushi Bar for unique and yummy sushi and Westville for indulgent casual eating. In terms of where to shop... you can’t go past Soho, Greenwich Village and the amazing department stores like Saks and Barneys.
InStyle: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
One quote I’ve always loved is "Believe in yourself and all things are possible.” A little corny but so true.
