    India Hicks, Host Top Design 2


    India Hicks, Host

    Top Design's newest host, India Hicks, is the daughter of famed interior decorator David Hicks and Lady Pamela Hicks. Over the past ten years, Hicks has enjoyed a successful career as a fashion model, being photographed by some of the world's most renowned photographers for the industry's top fashion campaigns including Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, and Bill Blass. In 2003, Hicks and her partner David Flint Wood published an interior design book entitled, Island Life: Inspirational Living and in 2005 Hicks published the sequel, Island Beauty.

    Flint Wood is the father of Hicks' four children and they currently live on a small island in the Bahamas, where they built two plantation style guesthouses. They also invested in and redecorated an 1800's building, which now serves as a restaurant and hotel. In addition, Hicks is the creative director of a successful shop where she sells clothes, bed linens and eccentricities gathered from her travels around the world.

    Most recently, Hicks became a creative partner to Crabtree and Evelyn. Her first collection, Island Living, was so successful that a second collection is now in production. In addition, Hicks is heavily involved in several charitable organizations including a small community school in the Caribbean to which she donates ten percent of her proceeds from the Island Living Collection and book sales.

    It seems to be in style to have a Brittish woman host reality TV.

    I hope India is better than Feane Cotton on LCS, I can't stand her.
    India was one of Princess Diana's bridesmaids if I remember correctly.

    that's it, Fluff! I knew I remembered her name from somewhere.

    I've forgotten - who hosted last year?

    Not working for me. She's stiff. Her skin doesn't look good.... like she had a peel yesterday, or this morning. And I really don't like the farewell line: "We cannot live with your design." If they do a third season, I predict she won't be along for the ride.

    Interesting fact if anyone didn't already know, she was a bridesmaid for Diana and Charles' wedding.

    I think it will take time to warm up to her but I am liking her a little more with each episode. I find that this season is a little more organized than last.

    I really want to like her but I've having a hard time. She brings constructive criticism to the panel, but her tone is so flat. I do like her lower-pitched voice though. I just really want to like her.
