Lorna Baker - Education manager UK & ROI
“No two days are the the same for me. From guiding the education team to educating stylist to creative show and shoot work, my role is varied to say the least. With a passion that lies in vintage styling, I love to use retro references to create classic styles and finishes. While classic glamour is where my heart is, I’m also perfectly at home creating something completely different at London Fashion Week.”
