Virginia Chadwyck-Healey, known to many as Ginnie, worked at British Vogue for 12 years, firstly managing the British Fashion advertising portfolio and latterly, as the Executive Retail Editor. This role gave her a breadth of knowledge across the industry, acquiring a balanced interest in both the commercial and the creative.
Ginnie now works with brands to enhance the customer experience through special events and team training days. 'We live in an era where the consumer is more exposed than ever before to brands around the globe, all of whom are vying for their attention, across multiple channels. Customer service should always sit near the top of every brand's 'Room for Improvement' list' says Ginnie.
As a private client stylist, Ginnie promotes sustainable shopping habits and ethical awareness when recommending a fashion purchase. 'Buy fewer, better quality pieces and you can't go wrong' is her mantra.
As an Ambassador for SmartWorks Charity, Ginnie offers styling advice to women attending job interviews, because 'The right outfit can make all the difference'. She contributes to Sky News and writes a weekly column in the Sunday Telegraph.
Ginnie is married to Oliver, and they have three children. They live near Pangbourne in Berkshire.
