EP12 - Edeline Lee
Season 2, Ep. 12
I met Edeline Lee, the successful fashion designer when I reluctantly agreed to be a catwalk model in one of her shows. Today's podcast was much less scary, although I did mark the occasion by wearing one of Edeline's beautiful tops! When I chatted to Edeline I got an insight into the feat of engineering that goes into making each piece of clothing and the importance she places on the person wearing the finished product. I am so inspired by how she listens to her customers and literally takes care over every hand stitch - I hope you will be inspired too so Let's get Listening!!

She really is a remarkable lady so Let’s get Listening!
