So I was recently fortunate enough to nab a spot at the Drapers Next Generation Academy and had the chance to hear from some of the most successful people in the fashion industry. With key speakers such as Andy Rubin, CEO, Pentland Brands, Michael Sharp, CEO, Debenhams, Stephanie Fair, MD, The Outnet, Dan Lumb, Reiss and Paul Marchant, MD, Primark the day showed insights into all kinds of areas within the industry. For me, my favourite speaker had to be the truly inspirational story of Julie Dean, Cambridge Satchel Co. Her tale of sitting at her kitchen table with £600 and a laptop to creating a multi million pound empire captivated the entire audience, and she's just so humble!!!
Whilst enjoying the amazingly delicious lunch time spread I was snapped by the Drapers Street Style hunter and had a little chat about ambitions and aspirations. Here is my street style shot wearing top and bag from my SS13 collection.
