Many years ago, during my SBS Food days, I was lucky to be introduced to a high tea aficionado, Michelle Milton, who had a vision to create a destination for all the high teas of the world to share the stories and tips of other fellow foodies.
Many years later, well almost 8 years, our paths crossed and I am now a reviewer for The High Tea Society, now it was my turn to interview the wonderful lady.Read More

The Morgan Business Folio is coming in whiskey and it’s the business.

Starting a new accessory label is not an easy feat. Not even when you are as passionate as I am.
You have the upfront investment with your time; brand design and development, website development, content creation, sampling, product photography, merchandising, look books; materials such as leather and hardware and then there is the largest expense - the cost of having the first range hand made by talented artisans.
Only then, once you have invested your savings and after about six months of your time does the sales cycle start. Of course the effort starts earlier, when you are building the brand, however the returns do not come in until your first sale. This was when I was introduced to The First Thread.Read More

It was this seemingly impossible feat that formed the foundations of Hills & West.Read More
