She’s in fashion

A Cockermouth woman is setting the local fashion industry alight after landing a job managing one of the country’s most iconic fashion labels.

FOLLOWER OF FASHION: Orlanda Wright, 26, of Belle Vue, Cockermouth, with items from the Jacques Vert range

Orlanda Wright, 26, of Belle Vue, Cockermouth, is retail manager for the Jacques Vert group at Carlisle’s House of Fraser store.

Her love of fashion has seen her manage a team of 17 assistants and eight major fashion brands.

She started last month and oversees labels including Alexon, Windsmoor, Dash, Kaliko, Planet, Precis Petite, Minuet Petite and Jacques Vert.

She worked her way up from roles such as personal shopper and brand specialist.

Orlanda said: “The local fashion scene is really taking off now and I have had some amazing opportunities.

“It’s a dream job working with these heritage brands and with local women to give them premium fashion to suit their own style.”

She said her future goals could one day see her organise a leading fashion event for the area.
