Imagine getting the chance to work with a woman who inspired your career choice and ambitions? Well, Warehouse is giving some of the UK’s brightest rising stars that chance with its Women to Watch campaign. The brand has reached out to a group of women currently making waves in the creative industries, from fashion and tech to floristry and music, and paired them with a network of female mentors who are all experts in their fields. We’re talking broadcasting icon Edith Bowman, MOBO founder Kanya King and Head of Google Campus Sarah Drinkwater to name a few. These industry heavyweights will be sharing their knowledge and experience with their rising stars to give them everything they need to take their careers to the next level.
Edith has been paired with presenter and fashion favourite Lilah Parsons, Cassandra Stavrou, co-founder of popcorn brand and our go-to snack Propercorn will be advising florist Florence Kennedy and Google’s Sarah Drinkwater is taking on young tech entrepreneur Chloe Watt. Then, you’ve got fashion journalists Melanie Rickey and Jessie Brinton mentoring newbie illustrator Lo Parkin and set designer Clementine Keith-Roach, and MOBO mogul Kanya pairing up with emerging singer/songwriter Becky Hill. Finally, CEO of the British Film Institute Amanda Nevill will be working with film-maker Mollie Mills, while Talent Producer Abi Harris is a match made in heaven with Charlotte Haddon, a photographer already attracting serious attention in the industry.
So what is the goal of this genius meeting of minds? To help women become the women they want to be and can be, and to bring a whole load-of-money can’t buy knowledge to the chosen ladies. In turn, Warehouse will showcase their individual talents and give them a platform to shine, so you can follow their journey along the way. Find out more at warehouse.co.uk/womentowatch #womentowatch
