The crazy world of Luella

Fresh out of college I joined the Luella team in the creative marketing department. The place was "bonkers" and the girls amazing. Randomness was key, the weirder the better and always with a definitive sick undertone...but in a nice way.

Luella gave me some vital experience within the business side of the fashion industry.

Being an arty farty creative type I would be lying if I said this was a job well suited to me but I desperately needed the knowledge and don't think I could have been given a better opportunity to absorb.

The Pr, Sales, Buying and Production teams were within the same 4 walls as I, as well as the managerial roles and I watched, listened and learned and left a more rounded individual with a few great contacts and friends to boot.
