DERYANE TADD

As The Dressing Room’s Owner & Director, you’ll find Deryane flying between buying appointments and meetings throughout the week or in the office working on her selections for the gorgeous collections that arrive in store. Every day is different, and there’s never a quiet moment for her, but she’s always on the shop floor on Fridays and weekends as styling and the shop floor buzz is what she loves most about working in retail. Having worked in retail for years, she loves nothing more than seeing her team flourish and is really passionate about developing careers in retail. When she’s not trying to tempt her dog, Coco, into a walk through Verulamium Park, you’ll find her doing a new store layout as visual merchandising is one of her favourite parts of her job (while being tempted to add to her enviable wardrobe!)

LAURA BOOTY

Following a degree in womens Fashion Design, Laura joined us 2014 as the Website Manager.  Laura now oversees the Operations side of the website, shopfloor & stockroom, working closely with Deryane to make sure everything runs smoothly! You’ll find her in the office with a large coffee in hand, having a giggle with the girls. When she’s not at work, she’ll be having brunch with friends (she’s a real foodie!) or spending time with her nephews who keep her very busy! As part of the management team, Laura not only loves the team she works with, but also helping them develop their strengths and careers.

CHARLOTTE PHILLIP

Charlotte started as a full-time stylist in 2006 and quickly progressed to Store Manager and has been a key part of Deryane’s team for many years using her degree in Fashion Photography to add creative input. She loves the fast-paced buzz that ensures there’s never a dull day here, as well as working alongside a team that is never short of lots of giggles! She has a gorgeous daughter, Aurelia, who keeps her on her toes with her fashion-mad antics, but you’ll find her styling up a storm at work on Mondays, Wednesday’s and the weekends.

CHARLEY WELCH

Charley is our lovely Assistant Store Manager, having started in 2015 as a full-time stylist. With a degree in Textiles Design and training in floristry, Charley is a lover of print and colour, you’ll be sure to find her styled in Rixo London & Essentiel as she loves their unique designs. When she’s not here, she’ll be with her with her gorgeous Frenchie, Albert, or working on a creative project as she loves all things interiors and gardening. Her guilty pleasure has got to be indulging in some really good food or cooking up a treat at home.

BECKY VASS

Following her degree in Fashion Communications, Becky joined The Dressing Room in 2014 and is our fun & friendly Senior Website Supervisor working on all things web and social media related. She’s super organised & very tidy, so keeps all the office girls in check!  Working alongside the hardworking DR team is what she loves best, but when she’s not at work you’ll find her wedding planning or relaxing with a glass of wine in a pub garden! Perfect at achieving effortless casual style, Becky loves both Custommade and American Vintage as her go-to brands.

NATALIE YEO

Having worked with Deryane for over 20 years when they were both at French Connection together, Natalie started working at The Dressing Room in 2012 after taking time out to have her two boys, Freddie & Charlie. As the Office Manager, she deals with the admin side of the business – and she’s your go-to lady for dealing with any customer returns. She makes everyone smile in the office with her bubbly personality, and you’ll often find her singing Take That or Mariah Carey (her not so guilty pleasures!)

##IMAGE##
ELLE PEARSON

Elle joined us part-time in 2014 whilst studying Fashion Media & Marketing at University and has been here ever since! She’s now working full-time as our Website & Social Media Assistant putting all her media & marketing skills to good use, and more recently as our Online Personal Shopper, so if you ever need any online style advice, Elle is your lady! Known to be a prolific shopaholic, her favourite brands are Ba&sh and J Brand but she loves nothing more than helping people find their perfect outfit and feel amazing wearing it. Her guilty pleasure is G&Ts and she is obsessive about social media, so you’ll often find her combining the two and Instagramming while sipping!

ALESHA EVANS

Alesha joined us in 2016 as a full-time stylist, following her love for fashion and styling. She deals with customer orders so expect a call from her if you’ve ordered something exciting in! Her key wardrobe staples include Rixo London, J Brand and Lily & Lionel, but apart from the clothes, she loves working here because of the team and the laughs along the way. When she’s not working, she’ll be found eating crepes in Hampstead with her little pup, Luna, and she’s a not-so-secret fan of Notting Hill & Pretty Woman.

JASMINE KNOX

Jasmine joined The Dressing Room team in 2017 and is one of our full-time trained stylists. She loves the mix of unique brands that can be found in an Indie Retailer, some of her favourites being American Vintage, Maison Labiche and J Brand. When she’s not at work, she loves walking in the countryside or watching cult films.

RACHEL WILLIAMS

Rachel is our part-time stylist who we often refer to as a ‘cool mum' due to her quirky and fashion-forward style. Following a career as a fashion buyer, Rachel joined us in 2016 and you’ll find her on the shop floor on Thursdays and weekends.  When she’s not here, she has her hands full with her gorgeous little boy, Seb! Her infectious humour always has the team laughing and she’s great at creating an outfit with an edge.

KAREN JENNINGS

Karen is our fabulous part-time senior stylist who joined us in 2006. Having worked in fashion since she was 17, with her first job window dressing in Harrods – she’s been obsessed with accessorising ever since! She loves nothing more than hearing customer stories about how good they felt or how many compliments they got on the outfit she helped style, especially when it was slightly out of their usual comfort zone! When she’s not at work you’ll find her topping up the tan in Spain or on the golf course, perhaps with a large G&T (her guilty pleasure!) A lover of bright colours and prints, she’s your go-to lady for the ultimate holiday wardrobe, and you’ll find her styling up her favourite brands Ba&sh, Essentiel & American Vintage which she cannot live without!

ANNETTE CORKE

Meet our Sunday senior stylist, Annette, who’s worked part time at The Dressing Room since 2006. Having been here over 10 years, she’s loved seeing the business grow and evolve, as well as the satisfaction of helping people find that one special thing or an entire outfit that makes them feel amazing. When she’s not at work, she’s kept super-busy with her family of 5 as well as her 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 guinea pigs (and more!) The way to her heart is Hotel Chocolat & her own style consists of brands including DAY, Custommade and Ba&sh – feminine style with an edge.

JACQUI FRANCOIS

Jacqui joined us in 2017 as our Stock & Order Administrator, working alongside the girls in the office. Liaising with our brands, she deals with all of our stock management, but also loves seeing all the product arrive and be merchandised in store. Outside of work, she’ll be looking after her horses at the stables with her daughter, or cheering on her son at the side of a football pitch…either way she’s not afraid to get a little muddy! 

##IMAGE##
NINA WOODWARD

Nina joined The Dressing Room team in 2014 and deals with our book keeping and accounts. Despite her job being admin-based, she loves the brands we have in store and is partial to a little bit of shopping when she’s not working! A denim-lover, her stable wardrobe always has the perfect jeans and as she is a Mum to three cheeky monkeys, she’s always looking to be comfortable and casual in our Core Classics. 

##IMAGE##
SOPHIE IZZARD

Sophie is our super-human Stockroom Controller who joined us in 2015 and we don’t know where we’d be without her! Keeping everything shipshape in the stockroom and ensuring all deliveries are processed efficiently, she literally works wonders as well as having us in fits of laughter along the way. She’s known for her chocaholic tendencies and is often guilty of tempting the entire team into chocolate indulgences on a daily basis! When she’s not at work, you’ll find her studying Garment Technology at The Fashion Retail Academy, or at the 24 hour Starbucks with her friends (because the chocolate obsession continues into Frappuccino’s)!

##IMAGE##
COCO

Meet Deryane’s mischievous, yet very cute, little sausage dog, Coco! Keeping us company in the office, she’ll either be found craving attention with those little puppy-dog eyes or napping in her cosy little bed. She loves lunchtime where she gets totally fussed over and spoilt with naughty treats by the team, and the way to her heart is a chunk of cheese – her guilty pleasure! When she’s not avoiding walks, she’ll be found snuggled up at home or trying to get her paws on some silk or cashmere (it feels super soft against her skin)!
