There is no denying that the beauty industry is an exciting and fast-moving marketplace. It is fascinating to watch the changes that have taken place as the boundaries between beauty, wellness, nutrition and fitness have merged – ‘inside out beauty’ has truly evolved. It has also been interesting to watch the power shift from brands to consumers. Thanks to technology consumers are demanding transparency and authenticity from today’s brands.
The retail environment has changed significantly with the launch of ecommerce, marketplaces, affiliate marketing and influencers. However the principles for success remain the same. Great Innovation. Developing products people want and need and making them easy to purchase.
Over the past twenty years’ I have worked across this industry – in retail buying, product development and marketing – for contract manufacturers, beauty brands, retailers, travel retailers and distributors in the UK, Dubai and South Africa.
I have an MA in Strategic Marketing and a Diploma in Purchasing and Supply Chain Management, and have held positions as Global Product Director for Crabtree & Evelyn; Head of Beauty Buying & Merchandising for Al Tayer Group in Dubai, Global Marketing Manager for the De Beers Group, and senior buying and product development positions for the Heinemann Group, M&S, Boots, Body Shop.
Passionate about helping people to make a positive impact across this industry, I founded Bespoke Advantage in October 2017. Our brand promise is to ‘bring beauty to life’. Our mission is to empower our clients with clarity, creativity, commerciality and results through our consultancy and agency services. Our vision is to become the leading Brand Partner for developing your business from ‘concept to shelf’.

Unless someone comes from a background in this industry, you wouldn’t know what is required. Not only do I have the support of an experienced team to help me to make things happen and to grow my brand, but I also have a great personal relationship with Janet and her team, working in this way means I have someone to turn to, to share the journey of running a business.
