A senior designer from Cumbria starred in the first episode of a new series looking at a major UK fashion brand.

Victoria Arnison, 32, of Harrington, featured in the Channel 4 show Inside Missguided, which follows the work of her team at the fashion retailer Missguided.

In the first episode, which aired on Wednesday, Victoria was seen problem-solving at the firms' Salford HQ, dealing with delivery delays and organising photo shoots with influencers, among others.

During the programme she revealed more about herself and talked about her home-county.

Victoria said: "Cumbria is known for the Cumberland sausage, it's definitely not known for fashion.

"I've changed my whole life to come here for this kind of job.

"This is a job I've always wanted and I've got it - it's everything I thought it was going to be.

"Everyone used to say to me that it's an impossible career, it's really difficult to make it.

"Yes, if you want to be John Galliano, that's almost impossible, but if you want to work in a fast fashion company like this, you've just got to be ahead of everybody else and make sure you're as on it as possible."

She added her dream job would be to get her designs on Kylie Jenner.

Victoria also talked about her mum Hilary Butler, who worked in the advertising department of Cumbrian Newspapers, now Newsquest Cumbria, the publishers of the News & Star, Times & Star and The Whitehaven News.

Victoria said: "My mum was ringing up contacts from the Times & Star newspaper she used to work for, trying to get me on the front page.

"She thinks my name is on the back of every design, she really does - she'll say: 'Does that have your name on it.'

"And I'd say: 'No, I'm not a brand, I'm just a designer'."

Hilary said she was very proud of her daughter's achievements.

She said: "We were all watching it - family, friends even neighbours.

"We’re so proud of how far she has progressed, from Salterbeck school, Preston University to Missguided, she’s worked really hard to get where she is and won’t rest on her laurels until she’s at the top."

The show was filmed over a six-month period and filming was completed in January.

It consists of four episodes, with Victoria featuring in all of them, although the first one included one-to-one interviews.

She said: "The TV crew stayed with us for over six months, it was quite surreal because you have to get on with your day-to-day job as though you weren't being filmed."

The episodes are available to watch on the All4 app and will be aired on Wednesdays at 10pm.
