the fashion feed - episode 13 - lessons learnt in the fashion industry with elizabeth stiles

You asked and I listened!

A few weeks back, I did some insta polls asking what you’d like from the podcast and I was blown away with the amount of people asking for a solo episode … so here it is!

In this episode I share with you my career history so far & something I’ve taken from each business I’ve worked for. It’s quite unsual to have worked in so many different businesses across buying AND supplying so I hope you find it insightful to get a behind the scenes look at the industry!

I share what I learnt about school, uni, Next, ASOS, Asda, Miss Selfridge, NEW girl ORDER, Huge Boss & more!


I discuss :

  • My love of fashion from an early age

  • What it looks like to have a career in the fashion buying industry

  • Tips and tricks I’ve learnt along the way about how to deal with difficult situations

  • A lesson learnt from each business I’ve worked in

  • A brief insight into the life of a buyer (would love to do this one in more detail, I’ll save that for an upcoming episode!)

  • How my experiences have shaped my purpose within the work I do now
