I’m really pleased to announce that I’ll be covering for Boutique’s editor Gemma Ward while she’s away on maternity leave.

Boutique is a UK publication devoted to independent womenswear retailers. I’ll be taking over the editorial arm of the magazine covering news, features and more. I love working on trade magazines and this one gives me the chance to express my sartorial streak. I’ve already discovered new brands to fall in love with and have been reacquainted with some old favourites – a very nice change from hard tech and automotive writing.

If you’re an independent boutique or a designer that sells wholesale, feel free to send over your latest news and images to jess@boutique-magazine.co.uk.

You can also find Boutique on Twitter and Facebook.
