Rewritten | Meet the team
FRANCES – CO-FOUNDER
Fran’s (Frances is way too formal) official role is to design the Rewritten collections from start to finish; making tough decisions on styles, colours and fabrics, keeping on trend but also rewriting the rules, and making sure both our bridal and bridesmaids collections are the best of the best.
A Fashion Design Graduate from Edinburgh College of Art, Fran then spent ten years working in Communications for brands such as NET-A-PORTER before founding Rewritten with Katie.
Fran has a love of 90’s dance music, Marvel films, running, chips, dogs, interior design and neutral colours. If it wasn’t for Katie, the entire Rewritten collection would be available in shades of black, beige and grey.
KATIE – CO-FOUNDER
Co-founder Katie is the brains behind Rewritten, managing the serious bits like finance, wholesale, operations and generally being the (slightly) more sensible one out of the two founders.
Katie is a business whizz and cut her teeth in the retail industry working for fine jewellery business Astley Clarke where she managed all retail channels for the brand.
Katie loves a project and has recently taken on a home renovation, along with juggling new baby and Rewrittens youngest team member, Freddie. When not building a house, managing finances and logistics, or looking after Freddie, Katie can be found eating Yaki Soba, demolishing a chocolate bar or at a hardcore boxing class. She is obsessed with Japanese culture.
Katies favourite Rewritten piece is the Soho Jumpsuit in Ink.
ANAHITA – HEAD OF OPERATIONS
Ana joined the Rewritten team in May 2017 and quickly became part of the gang. With a background in fine jewellery, Ana once worked with Katie and Fran at Astley Clarke (and therefore knew she could put up with them both). Ana looks after all of our glorious customers and is known for being able to tackle even the most last minute of wedding panics.
A jewellery nerd at heart, her obsession with cats could be classed as borderline weird and only rivalled by her love for crisps, velvet jumpsuits and flower arranging.
CHRISTINA - SHOWROOM MANAGER & CUSTOMER CARE
With a background in fashion retail and customer service, Christina is your girl when it comes to all things bridesmaid. If you've chatted to us via email, its more than likely you've spoken with the amazing Christina. Always here to help and answer queries, advising what dress would be best suited to you or finding emergency dresses!
When Christina isn’t in the showroom drinking copious amounts of coffee, answering customer service questions, she enjoys home cooked Greek meals, dancing around to 90s garage and RnB and drinking a classic Gin & Tonic (or two!).
We asked Christina what her favourite Rewritten dress is and she said "It's a toughy as I actually like all our dresses for different reasons but I would say my fave dress is the Brooklyn. My wild card dress always surprises our lovely customers who are unsure of this style until they try it on. I also love this style because in both Crepe and satin I feel amazing, it's tailored to fit my body like a glove and I always have trouble finding dresses to fit my curvy body shape the bias cut is just a diamond idea that works for me, another great thing about this dress is that I can dress it up and down it's so versatile."
We LOVE this!
ELLA - MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA EXECUTIVE
If you're talking to us on social media or emailing about something marketing related, Ella will always be on hand to answer your questions. When not managing our social media accounts, Ella can be found organising photoshoots & collaborations, having coffee with press & influencers , at wedding fairs, or writing blogs on anything new to the wedding world.
When away from the office, Ella loves a city break. Exploring the world, trying new food, walking for hours down streets full of culture or drinking wine, she loves to travel. Ellas favourite dress is new arrival, The Porto.
MEG - SHOWROOM STYLIST
Book a showroom appointment and Meg will be here taking you through the ropes, recommending which dresses you should try on, and passing you the prosecco.
Meg studied drama, theatre and media at The University of South Wales where she then went on to live in Berlin performing theatre and burlesque. She also loves making jewellery & has an interest in photography. Meg discovered a knack for styling whilst working in retail and now really enjoys helping brides and bridesmaids choose outfits to feel their most fabulous on the big day.
Megs favourite dress is the Brooklyn in Chianti, it makes her feel like Jessica Rabbit!
MEL - MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTANT
Mel is one of the newest members of the team but she is such a character and we couldn't imagine the office without her! Mel grew up in Cornwall so has a given love for the seaside, she loves leopard print, a good boogie, beer & cheese. Top tip, if you chat to Mel and she's not going to Fabric at the weekend, make sure she's ok! She's a committed Fabric party go-er and its rare if she doesn't make an appearance at least once a week.
Mels favourite dress is the Florence Waterfall in Burnt Orange satin, we would love to see this styled with a bit of leopard print (and Mel's favourite Dr. Martens!)
