It’s been a long time between posts! In 2016/2017 I spent a year working in the ethical fashion space and it took me on a new and exciting wild ride.

Taking my magazine and digital media skills, combining them with my obsessive LOVE of shopping and drive to support women, I was working as Head of Retail at social enterprise The Market. The Market exists to support women excluded from mainstream employment to create financial independence and empowerment through small business ownership. I had the privilege of working alongside them, and women internationally, to commission and market their beautiful handmade, ethically produced, luxe products for an online lifestyle store I curated The Market.

It was ethical shopping heaven.

When I left my magazine editor job I wrote these words on my facebook quote: she believed she could so she did.

And I did.

What new projects am I up to in 2018…watch this space :)
