IN AN OLD PHOTO of Faye Toogood from 2012, she is gazing rather sternly into the camera, sporting platinum-blond hair and a leopard-print minidress. She had just collaborated with Opening Ceremony, creating furniture and interiors for the fashion brand’s London pop-up. Some five years later, Toogood is sitting in a chair of her own design, on the second floor of her new atelier, a Victorian townhouse in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood, wearing shades of beige: tan, flat-soled boots, sturdy cream trousers and a cream felt coat. Her hair is now its natural brown, and her expressions are softer. “I’ve created many identities,” says Toogood, who turned 40 this January. “There have been multiple haircuts, multiple wardrobes and multiple versions of me. I tend to step into whatever world it is that I am making at the time, and I very much inhabit that construct.”...Photos by Felix Odell for WSJ MAG
