Before setting up in my consultancy, I was a buyer for 15 years for some of the world's most recognised brands.
But what is a buyer and what do they do?
In short, a buyer is responsible for the clothes you see in store - what the collection looks like, how much to sell each piece for, how much to produce and when to deliver it. They work closely with factories to make it all happen.
I loved my job but hated working in an industry that I knew was incredibly polluting and damaging on a global scale. I thought about leaving the industry all together but knew the industry was even less likely to improve without change-makers on the inside.
In 2019 I set up my consultancy and decided to work with purpose-driven and sustainably-minded brands, using my expertise to help businesses BE the change that the fashion industry needs.
Who I've worked with:
I welcome the opportunity to speak about retail and sustainability and have guest lectured for The Prince's Trust and The University of Westminster.
I've also been featured on BBC radio talking about sustainability and conscious consumption. You can listen back on my press page.
