"After graduating, I was keen to get some practical retail experience to help me progress towards my goal of self employment and running my own fashion boutique. I began by working full time at Oasis, then progressed to concession manager of Dune. Although selling and meeting targets was fulfilling, I was very keen to get back to creativity and as I love footwear and sport decided to open a trainers boutique with a difference. We are big on customising and are building a Gallery of Trainers which has been popular.
A future project I have in mind is to give plain trainers to different artists for customisation and display the results in our store with a booklet of each artists work giving them a city platform to sell their work. I am also keen to convert the fashionistas who avoid trainers."
Good Luck Katy.
