Esa Evans is our Woman in Progress this week. She is an artist and founder of her jewellery brand of gorgeous limited edition collections and fashion and charity collaborations. We discovered Esa on Instagramand instantly coveted her “females unite” necklace (which arrived in the post box shortly after thanks to her kindness #gifted!). We were taken with her clever mixing of message and style and keen for her to join our wonderful Women in Progress.Read More
Our next Woman in Progress is Molly Aldridge, mum to two gorgeous young boys and global CEO of M&C Saatchi PR. Before joining M&C Saatchi, she set up her own PR firm, SLAM, which she grew from a team of four to over a hundred (whilst having a newborn - we're exhuacasted just writing this). She combines this with being huge fun and one of the reasons we miss London so much.
We've also completely abused her inability to say no (see below) by asking her to answer our questions. Thanks Molly!Read More
Our latest Woman in Progress is Laura Lea from Laura Lea Design. Laura founded her Leytonstone boutique three years ago, and in that time her business has gone from strength to strength. Laura's shop stocks fantastic artists and designers whose work can't be found on the high street (it's a must-go place for great gifts) and Laura also organises pop-up exhibitions around London to expose the artists and designers she represents to new audiences. We're delighted she's taken the time to answer our questions.Read More
Our next Woman in Progress is the fabulous Bonnie Chung, founder of Miso Tasty, a fast-growing food business whose mission is to make tasty and nutritious Japanese food easy for anybody to make themselves. Bonnie came up with the idea for Miso Tasty when she was 24, whilst working as a chef, and today their soups, miso pastes and noodle kits are stocked in Waitrose, Sainsburys, Ocado, Wholefoods and so many other places. Miso Tasty is one of those food start-ups that others look to in admiration (and a bit of envy!). Bonnie's also recently published her first cookbook. Not that we're jealous or anything.Read More
