Who are you and what do you do?  Fashion recruitment consultant. I have come to Prestige Recruitment Group with 19 years of industry experience as a Buyer and Production/Sourcing Manager having worked with some well-known brands in the UK. I have to say the highlight of my career so far was when I spent 5 ½ years working in India with suppliers and factories buying and sourcing for UK, US and European brands and start-up companies for Accessories, Apparels, Homes and Lifestyle. I absolutely love being in Fashion and love to shop.

If you could teleport, where would you go? Well I love a hot country but am happy to stay in the UK too as my dream is to run a small guest house which I could do here or in a hot place. If it was in the UK, it would be a cosy place, a nice big log fire, candles everywhere (as I love candles) and a very homely feel. I love cooking so home cooked food for my guests.

Who is your most inspirational person? My daughter.
