The Many Sides Fashion Illustration By Toni Morris.

You come from a corporate background - why did you decide to branch out and set up The Many Sides and what were you able to bring to the process from your former career?
I set up the business because I found I was no longer excited by what was on offer on the high street - I wanted to bring more unique, well made clothes to people that were also frustrated by the high street as well as the 'slap on a monogram' ethos which we see from established labels. As such it was kind of a labour of love! Basically I wanted to connect creative designers with women who wanted to express themselves through creative fashion!
I think from my former career I am able to bring a level of professionalism and attention to detail which is important. It also helps to be able to structure a deal which is important when thinking about different ways you can do business.
