Felicity joined the Mirror Group in the early 1960s initially as Associate Editor of the Sunday Mirror, quickly moving on to the same role in the Daily Mirror. Her role was to promote the influence of women into every aspect of the paper but most prominently in the emerging, vibrant London fashion scene during the ’60s.
At this revolutionary time when contemporary, ‘young’ fashion was becoming available to the discerning masses Felicity was at the heart of collaborations with designers such as Biba, Mary Quant and style icons such as Twiggy and Vidal Sassoon.
Felicity spoke of her career path beginning as a typist, moving swiftly on to advertising, PR and then journalism where her passion for style was able to thrive. It was inspirational to hear the life lessons that have stayed with her such as kindness and honesty in business as well as being able to work within a team which trusts your creative talent, forming bonds with colleagues which enable you to do your very best work. It was clear that through a time of social change and difficult circumstances for women in the workplace, Felicity carved herself out an exceptional career through hard work and most of all a brilliant sense of humour.
