Hey I’m Elizabeth!
Fashion brand consultant, trend forecaster & proud cat mama.
So, what is a fashion brand consultant I hear you ask? Well, I work with independent clothing brand owners, taking you effortlessly from design to production, guiding you step-by-step so that you can turn your creative clothing ideas into reality.
With a decade of experience in the fashion business working for leading high-street brands like Miss Selfridge, Next and George at Asda, I can honestly say I know the fashion buying and supply process inside out. I want to share everything I know with you so that you’re set to create new collections or develop your product range armed with the knowledge to succeed.
Growing up, my favourite thing to do was ‘making stuff’ – it didn’t really matter what I was making as long as I was creating something and twenty years later, I’m still as passionate about ‘making stuff’ as ever before – it’s just now I‘m fully focused on fashion products. It’s no surprise I found my way into the fashion industry, I received a fashion wheel for my eighth birthday and at sixteen, my very first work experience was at Arcadia’s head office. I loved every minute of it; I was surrounded by clothes, the latest style inspiration and that’s when I knew fashion was the industry for me.
Elizabeth is super easy to talk to, and gets it! She goes beyond the clothes talk to give you support in your creative journey which is equally important if not more!
A decade of experience in the fashion industry.
Working for leading high-street brands.
Proud cat mama.
After studying Fashion Retail Buying at Demontfort University, I went on to work in fashion buying, travelling to factories in Portugal, India and Hong Kong whilst working my way up the buying career ladder.
I then went on to work as a fashion design manager for a London production agency working with River Island & New Look.
Most recently I co- launched a new independent brand New Girl Order so I’ve seen first hand what it takes!
Let’s talk about the fashion industry… it’s fast-paced, undeniably creative and always exciting, but it comes with a stereotype and I have definitely encountered my share of devil wears prada moments along the way. I’m here to break that stereotype and show that fashion can have a friendly face and a soul that supports and champions other fashion entrepreneurs.
I’m here for you; the fashion brand owners who are inspiring, innovative and bursting with new design ideas. I’ll help to develop your skills and educate you on garment manufacturing so that the process is as seamless & profitable as can be.
