Have you ever been in a quandary about what to wear to an important meeting or conference? Do you travel away on business a lot and need to pack that perfect, ready-for-every-occasion capsule wardrobe? Have you got an important job interview that you want to sail through? Then our latest School of Grazia masterclass is for you.
Taking place on 24th February in Paramount, London this evening promises to be practical, inspiring and informative. But it is so much more than that. Hosted by Grazia's Editor at large Angela Buttolph and Grazia Fashion Editor Hannah Almassi, we are gathering together three of London's most inspiring experts and business women for this event to lend their wealth of experience in this field. These women have made their way to the top of their careers - in the city, retail and launching their own thriving businesses - and together they promise to bring a wealth of advice to the table.
Kim Winser OBE is Head of fashion brand Winser London and one of the UK’s most internationally renowned and inspirational business women. Tatiana Ohnyeva, Head of Client relations at Harrods is currently responsible for development of the store’s top clients including marketing for Personal Services such as Personal Shopping. And last but not least there’s Polly McMaster, founder of fashion label The Fold. Prior to starting The Fold, a contemporary workwear brand that defines 24/7 dressing for the modern, professional woman, Polly worked in the city. In July 2013, Management Today voted Polly one of ‘35 Women Under 35’.
These women will be discussing the importance of business dressing and if it is a way to get respect at work. They will also be tackling the etiquette minefield that comes with workwear: questions like how high is too high when it comes to heels? What is the perfect power dress that won't let you down even in the most pressurized situations? How far can you can liven up a sober suit when your dress code is ultra strict? Together our esteemed panel will be drawing on their own experience to help you in your career.
Afterwards there will be an hour of networking and a chance to meet the panellists and Grazia team. Have your style problems prepared – and book early as tickets are selling out fast!
