8 months ago I took the biggest gamble of my life and invested my life savings in setting up my own formal wear boutique called Ri Ris in Billericay, Essex.

I had no previous experience in retail nor had I ever worked in a shop but I had a passion for fashion and I was determined to build a business for my future.

I also have a beauty background so provide affordable packages including dress, shoes, bag, hair, make-up, lashes and a tan so the girls feel a million dollars at their prom. Their smiles are enough to make me feel the gamble was all worth it and we are now already one of the most popular prom shops in the area.

Interests and Hobbies
I am currently designing my own prom dress collection and would absolutely love to see these stocked in not only my own shop but other stores throughout the country.

Another dream of mine is to own my own farm with the space to re-home injured and abandoned animals.
I love to visit the theatre regularly and even though I no longer act, I love to be surrounded by the arts. I also love to eat and dining out is one of my favourite things to do, whether it be at a local pub for lunch or more refined restaurants for special occasions.

I love to ride as much as possible but with working 12 hours a day in my shop this has unfortunately had to take a back seat.

Spending any spare time with friends and family is always top of my list.
Environmental Message
I am aware of the effects of modern life on the environment and if every individual globally took steps to reduce their waste it would have a huge impact to dramatically improve our environment. We need to work together to save our planet but one of the steps I have consciously instigated in my shop is to use recycled items wherever possible i.e. my shopping bags.
