'I feel it is so important to build trust with the women who shop with me. I truly love dressing women and the part I play in helping them conquer their world every day.'
'Fashion and getting dressed is about fun and pushing boundaries...mainly our own. I love seeing our beautiful customers blossom as their wardrobe evolves and their self-confidence with dressing grows. It is truly special to play a part in that journey.'
'For me, clothes are theatrical and a form of escapism. I draw on art, film and music to inspire me and in turn, the women I dress. Celebrating women as individuals is key to making them feel fabulous in their clothes.'
'Fashion is so much more than clothes. It's an emotional and physical transformation and being a part of this process makes my day. I love connecting with customers to help them express themselves in the most positive and supportive way.'
