Jen, a Graphic Designer and brand builder, has worked for the likes of Yoox Net-a-Porter, Manolo Blahnik, Karen Millen and Label/Mix. Her growing passion for sustainability led her to make a bold move, quitting her job to create this independent, sustainably focused company.

Later, progressing to Head of Image at Elite London and Head of Women at Titanium Management. Taking a break from the fashion industry and with an entrepreneurial spirit Lucy opened her own award-winning restaurant, Jar Kitchen, Covent Garden, to later return with a fresh perspective on the fashion industry with sustainability in focus.
