Fashion Entrepreneur, Amanda Wakeley has an international reputation for her stylish design, fine accessories and luxury womenswear ranges. She has won many awards for her work and has an army of a-list clientele who all call upon her services on a regular basis. In her time she has won the British Fashion Award for Glamour three times and as a result works often with some of the most famous and glamorous women in the world for high profile, red carpet events. She has dressed members of the Royal Family including Queen Rania of Jordan and the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
All of Amanda’s skills are self taught and she is someone with huge motivation and drive. She worked in her youth for an influential New York designer and retailer and there learnt lots about business. It gave her the confidence to work on launching her own brand and designs and that collection now includes bridal gowns and fine jewellery as well as various other fashion items and the read to wear pieces with which she first started. Her own store opened in 2009 on Fulham Road in London and now she is stocked by Harrods and Harvey Nichols as well as many others.
Amanda raises funds and awareness for a number of charities and causes, and has co-chaired the committee for the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer appeal, which has raised over £10 million. As such she is a real fashion expert with lots of insight and experience to offer
