Heather has over 20 years of experience in the fashion industry, a journey that has taken her from the shop floor as a sales assistant during her student days to the head office as a Buyer for renowned brands like Mothercare and Ralph Lauren. Her diverse career path eventually led her to a fulfilling role as a lecturer at the London College of Fashion for a number of years.

Having witnessed first-hand the detrimental effects of the fashion industry on the environment, Heather's passion for making a difference ignited her desire to take action and launch her own business Recrea, a Sustainable Fashion Host.
