I was 20 years old when I set up my first retail business straight from design college. I quickly outgrew solo retail and set my sights on broadening my commercial opportunities working for many years in high level retail, wholesale, buying and product development. I also embraced e-commerce and hosted two successful online boutiques where I designed and sold many collections.
Forever learning, along with my fashion design & textiles credentials , I became certified in Fashion buying, product development and business management. While the creative and development side truly fascinates me, experience has proven to me that an equal amount of business acumen is essential to success - especially in the Fashion Industry.
Ultimately what I want to develop is an environment that designers can have the freedom they need to create their products to the highest possible standards, whilst mastering their business management skillset to enable them to grow. I want to pass on my knowledge and what I have learnt on my journey to those who want to learn from successes and my mistakes.
