Tell us a bit about yourself
I am the Founder and CEO of Fashion Roundtable, which works across events, policy, consultancy and advocacy for the long-term strategic and sustainable growth of the entire fashion industry in the global marketplace.
I have over 20 years experience working in the fashion industry, as a fashion editor and consultant for international brands, shows and publications; as well as working in the UK Parliament.
I sit on numerous industry and advocacy roundtables across business, the creative industries, public affairs and sustainability.
I am also the secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Textiles and Fashion.
What makes you smile?
My favourite flowers - I love all kinds of flowers, from scabious, to hollyhocks, from peonies to roses, I enjoy English country flowers, but I also grow herbs, fruits and vegetables.
What can we do to support others during this time?
We all need to listen, sometimes it is not what someone is saying, it is how they are saying it and also what they are not saying, which they need support with.
What have you been doing? (Any tips/ advice for isolation)
I exercise everyday, that helps. I am not isolated, in fact as a parent running a business, I have less time and less isolation!
Who is your role model and why?
Shaun King in the States really inspires me.
