Get to know the founder of Charlotte Simone
What made you want to start Charlotte Simone?
I had an idea my Freshman year of college, an idea to make a statement scarf! A scarf that you could invest in just as you do a shoe or a handbag. When it was time for me to graduate I still believe that was a good idea so I just went for it! Charlotte Simone was an idea that slowly and organically grew into a business and now sells much more than a scarf.
When you were younger what did you want to be?
I’ve always loved fashion, books and history of art. I actually studied Art and English Literature at College but always knew I wanted to work in the field of Fashion. Saw myself as a fashion journalist until I took the plunge once graduating!

What are you grateful for?
I’m grateful for my family, my wonderful husband, my sausage dog Harold, my health, my beautiful little office, my wonderful team and my business surviving the storm that was Covid19.
Walk as much as you can! I walk about 45 minutes to and from my office every day ( unless it down pours ) Having that moment alone to just walk and reflect is so amazing for my mental health, I find it so freeing.

I am reading Dolly Alderton Ghosts!

What is the best thing about having your own business?
You get to be your own boss, manage your time and your life journey! It’s a blessing and sometimes a curse but overall I am so proud of where I’ve come these past 5 years of hard work and love poured into my business. During the pandemic there were a lot of tears and tantrums as to how I would survive but I’m so proud that we found a way to fight the storm and I believe we are stronger for it. So please stay tuned for what’s coming this winter! 01.10.20
