I have always had a passion for fashion.
As a child I had firm ideas about what I should wear and made my first foray into retail at a young age with my own "shop" in my bedroom. As a teenager I began to design and create outfits for myself and my closest friends.
Later I developed a better understanding of garment design and construction by studying Fashion, Design and Manufacture at Cardonald in Glasgow. After completion of my studies I worked within the fashion industry in London, Edinburgh and also spent time travelling in Spain.
Eden, which I took over in 2006, has given me the opportunity to bring together all my interests and skills. I hand pick and edit all the collections, shopping with my customers in mind and sourcing new labels. I look for quality design and value for money with an eye for the unusual and the unique, buying clothes which are to be worn rather than 'saved for best'. I also organise an annual fashion show as well as many other in-store events.
My aim at Eden is to create a friendly and relaxed environment in which customers can shop without pressure. I am on hand to offer advice when it is needed but very ready to step back and allow customers to browse at their leisure through the collections.
I hope you love the selection of labels and pieces chosen as much as I do! Happy shopping & welcome to Eden
