MY SECRET’S OUTNET

WHAT’S YOUR WARDROBE STORY?

What item is currently hanging in your wardrobe that you know you can rely on? Is it the dress you bought for a new job that gave you strength, or the shoes you can’t be without on a night out? We asked five influential women what pieces in their collection mean the most to them for our latest campaign. Without further ado, let’s hear what wardrobe stories they had to tell…

Woman in workwear clothing

An American based in London, sounds like some sort of epic, doesn’t it? Well, it’s actually the life of Kenya Hunt, the Fashion Director of Grazia UK. Her career spans working for some of the most influential women’s titles on both sides of the Atlantic from her post-graduate days as an Assistant Editor at Jane, to her years as Deputy Editor of ELLE UK. Her writing has appeared in The Guardian, Vogue, Marie Claire, The Evening Standard, just to name a few. And, she’s also managed to make a number of appearances on BBC Woman’s Hour, Sky News and more. As well as being an established journalist, Kenya is also taking the next leap forward into authorship with her debut book — GIRL, a series of essays on being a woman of color — which will be released later this year.
