“Harriett is very easy to work with, with an energising ‘can do’ attitude. She’s amazingly hard working, flexible and brimming with ideas. When the in-house team is bogged down she offers ‘see the wood for the trees’ solutions. She delivers on time and input has been invaluable.”

I am able to work alongside teams or individuals to help with selection, advise on new designs, put together outfits for fashion shows, edit for look books or shoot selection.
I am able to review companies, and see where the way forward may be, to work with the current collection but look towards a wider market or simply edit down to find the core vision.
I worked for the International Jewellery company Hemmerle, where I organised marketing, press and set up exhibitions at The Serpentine and Browns Hotel.
I was brought on board early in 2012, initially to pre-style outfits for the Penny Plain catalogue and to inject appropriate fashion savvy into the shoot – which was aimed at the older market. I re-arranged the collection into cohesive stories and fine tuned the outfits.
I was then invited back by the CEO to consult on ongoing product development – with the specific brief of streamlining ranges in terms of colour, key shapes and price point whilst reflecting fashion trends. I worked in conjunction with the buying team, liaising at storyboard stage onwards, attending planning and buying meetings.
