On Wednesday evening, we held our first event for our Her Edit LDN initiative at Tequila Mockingbird – a panel talk composed of six inspiring females discussing their challenges working in the sneaker industry, as well as their proudest career moments. The evening was attended by a mix of press, influencers, and business moguls, all ready to be stimulated by conversation surrounding women from different fields.
As the driver for this project, I was proud of the Edit team coming together and hosting such a positive and informative event that made guests come away feeling encouraged and motivated. The idea behind Her Edit was always to create a safe community of like-minded people who share the same passion, and also to promote work created by women who are having a hard time breaking through.
We're currently collaborating with female graphic designers to produce exclusive Edit stickers, which are sold and also given away in orders to promote their projects. We'll continue to work with queens in our space to give back to the community. Here's a bit about our speakers:
Hannah & Annabel – Pursuit the Label
Friends who found a gap in the swimwear market for a sustainable product that looks and feels amazing. They’ve had great success being featured in Vogue and Sports Illustrated, with so much more to come.
Titi Finlay – Creative Director
Our first sticker designer, Titi’s work continues to inspire women throughout the community with her powerful colours and messaging.
Nav Gill – Writer and Creative Consultant

Bethany Ferns – Celebrity Fashion Stylist

Please give them all a follow on socials and watch their careers continue to flourish! There’s so much more to come for Her Edit LDN, and we’re so happy you’re along for the ride.
