1. Can you please tell us a bit about your background in the fashion industry?
I worked for 10 years in the luxury fashion editorial world for everyone from InStyle and The Independent, to my last full-time role as a Fashion Assistant at Harper’s Bazaar and Town & Country magazines. I also assisted stylists Sasa Thomann, Jane How and Edward Enninful. After leaving Bazaar, I went freelance as a stylist and was also Jewellery and Accessories editor for Phoenix Magazine for a few years. After leaving Bazaar, I became more interested in the importance of sustainability as well as digital and this led me to do more writing as well as working in-house for a few sustainable brands.
