What is a fashion mentor and why do you need one?
The purpose of mentoring is to grow by tapping into the knowledge and experience of someone further along than yourself.
A fashion mentor is someone who helps you grow your skills, make better decisions, and gain new perspectives on your life and career. Rather than learning through trial and error, a mentor is a person you can look to, for direction and clarity.
By having someone who knows more than yourself, provide a friendly ear, guidance, motivation, and a sounding board for your thoughts, you stand to benefit from experience beyond your own.
Essentially having a mentor is an invaluable resource, and crucial to continued growth and development.
What is my role as your mentor?
My focus will be on you the client, rather than solving specific problems.
I will leverage my extensive experience in the fashion industry to help accelerate your development. This can be as either as a student or recent graduate, a new fashion startup or established fashion business owner.
What can I offer you…
With more than 15+ years’ of working in the heart of London as a Ready to Wear Designer, I have extensive experience designing seasonal catwalk collections for London Fashion Week, as well as globally in Europe, the Middle East, America and Asia. I have also created bespoke pieces for the red carpet and have had designs worn by high profile clientele ranging from stars of film, television, catwalk and music, British and international royalty.
For more than a decade I have focussed my career on sustainable fashion, working as a fashion design consultant. Supporting both existing fashion brands in becoming more sustainable, and working with purpose driven fashion startups. Accelerating growth through a variety of services, from design and product development, to consulting, mentoring, and coaching. Designing, supporting and building strategies within independent fashion brands and creating sustainable solutions throughout their business.
So, if this type of experience resonates with the direction you are working towards, then we’ll be a good fit!
