I left my finance job in 2015 to launch Silkarmour, an online platform created to cater to every possible fashion need of the modern career woman. At Silkarmour, we believe that the process of dressing for work should become like a morning ritual that prepares you to become the best possible version of yourself for the day ahead. In retrospect, having spent my childhood moving between many different countries (my parents travelled for business) and being exposed to new situations, definitely helped in the jump from a stable job to starting a business; it is not much unlike having to learn a new language in a foreign country. Although the company is still very young, the support from our customers has been so encouraging. I think now more than ever (especially after the election of Trump), women are recognising the need to rebalance the scales in the corporate world and beyond. We need to take our seats at the table, but on our terms – simply becoming copies of men would defeat the point. To do this, we need the women who are out there breaking the glass ceiling to be able to do so with confidence and ease, whilst unapologetically being their already powerful and beautiful selves.
I also recently also founded Empress Mimi, a subscription lingerie box celebrating self-love by delivering a personalised experience every month straight to your door. I speak 5 languages and holds a degree from UCL. I am passionate about empowering women through mentorship.
