My guest on Episode 5 of “In Bed with Neil Moodie” is former Vogue Fashion Director turned Designer, Fashion Stylist and all round entrepreneur.
Born and bred in Notting Hill Gate, West London, Lucinda was introduced to fashion very early on by her mother who was very crafty and one of her skills was dressmaking.
She began studying art at Hornsey college in London, but started her fashion journey when she decided to make and sell her own earring designs at Camden Market, eventually working her way up the ranks of the top editorial fashion magazines.
Lucinda became the fashion Director of British Vogue for 25 years, plus she consulted on the brands Prada and Marni in their early days, introducing both brands onto the worlds fashion map, eventually leaving Vogue in 2017 when the editorship changed.
She has now set up her own fashion design company called Colville and is also about to launch another online venture later this year.
I met Lucinda in her West London home where she’s resided for over 30 years We talk about her amazing career to date and some of the fun stories along the way, how she’s navigated her way through the fashion industry to now running a business after being employed for so many years and also what’s around the corner for this amazing fashion entrepreneur.
