PODCAST: Hush Founder, Mandy Watkins

Welcome to the latest episode of our Podcast series “In Conversation” where we bring you inspiring stories, retail insights and conversation from fashion’s most influential business leaders. 

Mandy Watkins started women’s fashion and lifestyle brand Hush back in 2003 from her home, fulfilling orders from her kitchen table.

She set out with an ambition to get 15 orders a day and in the summer of this year, she hit £1m of sales in one day alone.

This hugely successful brand is now supercharged for growth due to the recent backing of investment house True.

In this episode, Mandy tells Lauretta Roberts, Editor in chief of TheIndustry.fashion how the brand evolved from selling Ugg Boots and candles to now being a fully fledged women’s ready to wear and lifestyle business selling via its website, John Lewis and its very successful printed catalogue.
