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!)


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 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 and son Arlo, who keeps her on her toes with her fashion-mad antics, but you’ll find her styling up a storm at work on Mondays, Friday's and Sunday's. 


Charley is our lovely 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.


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.


From Sunday senior stylist, Annette is now Store Supervisor and has 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. 


Alesha joined us in 2016 as a full-time stylist, since then she has been promoted to shopfloor supervisor, 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. 


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!


Meet Emily, one of our full-time stylists, who has recently joined the team. You'll find her on the shop floor, styling up a storm, and she thrives off of helping someone find something that makes them feel on top of the World. Emily finds working as part of a dynamic team with different colleagues and customers inspiring and exciting, but when she's not at work, you'll find her scouring vintage shops for records to add to her collection or practicing Russian and French (she's got a degree in languages!) 


Joining the team as a Website Customer Service Assistant, meet Sophia one of our newest members to the office. A creative and kind character she can’t wait to get stuck in helping all our lovely customers with their online purchases. In her free time you will find her in a pub garden with a G&T in hand or getting lots of interiors inspiration as she has brought her first home. One of her favourite brands is Lily & Lionel so she can't wait for the new collections to arrive so she can soak up all their lovely prints. 


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!)


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! 


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 little boy, Seb and her gorgeous new arrival Poppy! Her infectious humour always has the team laughing and she’s great at creating an outfit with an edge. 


Having worked in knitwear buying previously, Lou is a real knitwear geek and loves colours and statement prints! Having taken time out of her career to have beautiful twin girls, she has now decided to head back into the industry and work at The Dressing Room as a part time Admin Assistant. A positive and friendly character in the office, she is bubbly and always up for a giggle. In her spare time you will find her entertaining her girls, shopping or doing nails and beauty treatments which she does on the side!


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. 


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)!
