Victoria has always had a naturally creative and artistic flair for design ever since she was young. In 1991, she studied Art & Design at Stockport College and then continued onto university at the Loughborough College of Art & Design.

In 1997, Victoria won 'Best of 20 Designers' in the UK which made her the first student in the history of Loughborough College to win this incredible award. This enabled her to exhibit in Paris at the Indigo Trade Fair where she sold her Haute Couture designs to luxury brands including Louis Feraud, Oscar De La Renta, Diben Lingerie and Massimo Rubini.
Victoria relocated to Hong Kong in 2002 where she spent 12 years as Design Director for many of the worlds leading retailers. She designed an extensive variety of collections from innovative theatre costumes to the most magical and whimsical Christmas and seasonal products which were sold globally.
