Meet the Family — Jessie

This edition of meet the family is brought to you by Adrian, Katherine, Youhan and Brigette.

Meet Jessie, leading lady of Yu Mei. She's not like a regular boss, she's a cool boss. Jessie does nearly everything except production & dispatch around here, including taking me (Kat) to my driving test in Porirua on the weekend. You can find her curating work drinks with copious amounts of goats cheese - she's always ready to host a party and loves swimming in the sea. Most people don't know (because her face is normally on 12 o'clock) but she's actually really funny. Jessie has an anything is possible, can do attitude and we're all fully on her train.

What are you currently working on at Yu Mei?

Brigette and I are preparing the SS18 sample collection and collateral for sales in Australia. 

What's been your favourite moment at Yu Mei?

Watching you guys bond as a family, Fashion Week 2016, our SS18 photoshoot, working with our amazing stockists and suppliers, Paris with Adrian, but above everything, the moments when you know you've created a great new design.

And worst?

Fashion Week 2017, something involving a ladder?

What's in your bag?

My keys, wallet, my makeup bag (sometimes), Nuxe lip balm (always), Loretta vouchers.

What's your favourite Yu Mei bag?
