this is me. charlotte. actually
When I was little I referred to myself as ‘Charlotte. Actually.’ I don't know why. But there it is.
So I thought I'd re-adopt it. If that's a thing.
My favourite bedtime story was 'Little Grey Rabbit' by Alison Utterly which I now read to my youngest
even though she's (shhh. quiet voice) maybe growing out of it.
I started my working career in fashion PR at Mary Portas’s agency, Yellow Door.
Whilst working in Vogue House I made myself a handbag that got picked up by Harrods and featured in Vogue.
Which is when I decided to set up the business properly.
I co-founded 'Pink Lining' with my husband Rufus, and won several design awards for the brand which sold internationally in London, New York, Paris, Tokyo.
(this is a very sped up version of events)
Somewhere along the way our family grew to include 4 children, one dog, two cats.
I have created bespoke designs for Harrods, Cowshed (Soho House group), Thomas Pink, The Haven Trust, Breast Cancer Campaign, Seraphine and John Lewis amongst others. I am also very proud to have worked with Great Ormand street Hospital to create an original illustration for the charity.
I am passionate about the environment and was commissioned to create the ‘Queen Bee’ design for a range of clothing and products for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust
I write articles and reviews for various lifestyle magazines and I am an author for mybaba.com
I live in London with my husband Rufus, our four children. The dog. Two cats.
