Fashion journalist Harriet says that the best thing about her job is ‘interviewing so many visionary, creative minds in a constantly evolving business’. The worst part is fashion-show ‘bench back’. Starting out as a reporter on Fashion Weekly, Harriet then moved to The Guardian as a style writer, before becoming the editor of Frank for a year, and then Vogue’s fashion features director for 11 years. She is now a freelance writer and consultant for retail company Lane Crawford. With the new season fast approaching, Harriet is most looking forward to ‘wearing red boots, preferably by Fendi’. She interviews Erdem on page 236.
