The other week British Grazia’s Executive Fashion and Beauty Editor was in Manchester to launch Raoul to Manchester based UK independent chain, Flannels.
I met Charlie on her last visit to Manchester, launching Selfridges SS11 collections at the Trafford Centre, and quizzed her about her role in fashion [see the interview here]
It was nice to catch up again and to chat about fashion from a wholly different economical stand-point.

It was also great to see Joy Yaffe again. Joy is the Global branding consultant for Raoul and has been in Manchester quite a bit recently, bringing Raoul to Selfridges and Flannels. Joy was born and brought up in Manchester and despite her now fabulous existence in Milan, hasn’t forgotten her roots.
She’s also quite the force to be reckoned with and is dubbed one of the top 25 most important fashion figures by The Times for her brand building work!
Should you be extremely interested in Raoul you can find out more about the brand from my interview with Harper’s Bazaar’s Kim Hersov or…. go shopping!
