DECISIONS I USED TO AGONISE OVER FOR A WEEK NOW TAKE ME 10 MINUTES. VISION IS EVERYTHING.
For over 20 years, Victoria Green was a textiles designer, working for some of the most popular names on the British high street.
In 2014, at the age of 45, she not only had her second child but decided to take a giant leap of faith and set up her own beauty bag design and manufacturing company. Passionate about functional design, she saw a gap in the market and set her sights on creating a range of designs, making day-to-day life more organised. Victoria Green bags are now sold in their 1000s via Debenhams, Amazon and specialist retailers, with a brand new collection launching at Marks & Spencers in 2018.
In 2017, Victoria was anointed Small Business Entrepreneur Of The Year at the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards and is overseeing the rapid rise of a new and exciting UK fashion brand for women.
Victoria is sincere about purpose and is on a mission to eliminate PVC from her products by 2020, as well as to build a unique culture of trust and customer responsiveness as her enterprise grows.
In this informal interview, she talks about decision-making, mentoring, failure, mindset, the blurred line between brand name and human person, and the relentless pursuit of the perfect idea.
