A Month of Inspiration

We’re feeling inspired this month at Cocorose HQ. Since Sunday we’ve been at Pure London, a fabulous trade show that displays a feast of fashion design talent, showcasing our new and very exciting Autumn-Winter and Spring-Summer collections. We also got the chance to catch a talk or two with inspirational entrepreneur Michelle Mone, fashion designer and icon Zandra Rhodes, and blogger London Liberty Girl.

Inspiring generations, Zandra is Chancellor at the University for the Creative Arts.

Nothing inspires us more then hearing the stories of women in business and the journey that they’ve been on to get themselves where they are today, and a particular entrepreneur that struck a chord was Michelle Mone, founder of Ultimo.

After demonstrating entrepreneurial flair from the tender age of 10, (she had her own paper round business and got teenagers to work for her), and thankfully avoiding the advice of her careers advisor, (she told Ms Mone to go and work in the supermarket), Michelle refused to stop pursuing her dream and has gone on to create and build one of the most successful lingerie brands in the world. Now that’s what we call inspiration!

"There's no such word as can't", we're heeding on Michelle's advice!

Have you been inspired? We’d like to hear from you! Join us over on Facebook or give us a Tweet @cocoroselondon.
