As a high-flying lawyer and the wife of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Miriam Gonzalez Durantez might be expected to have a wardrobe full of designer clothes. The year-old shared her style secrets for a new exhibition on women, fashion and power. She is one of 25 high-profile women donating an outfit to the Design Museum show. For work she mostly wears pencil skirts or fitted trousers with a top, while for leisure she wears jeans and a T shirt. The show, Women Fashion Power, will also include a year timeline of the links between fashion and politics with exhibits such as a Seventies power suit. What I wanted to do was look at how women use fashion in their professional working lives.

The former Deputy Prime Minister and top lawyer told how a small lump in year-old Antonio's neck turned into every parent's nightmare. They said the teenager went through four courses of "poisonous" chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin Lymphoma last September. Antonio suffered complete hair loss, vomiting and extreme tiredness - and was taking up to 20 tablets per day. His condition deteriorated so badly he became neutropenic, leaving him with no defence against infection. But since then the treatment appears to have worked, and regular checks have not detected any return of the disease.

An ultrasound scan and biopsy revealed stage 2 lymphoma and he was treated with four monthly cycles of chemotherapy, a course of heavy steroids and a barrage of medication.
