Hi all, it’s the last of our “getting to know” our Hey Dolly staff. 

Have a read and we hope you enjoy. 

Name?

Julie Francis 

What do you do at Hey Dolly?

I am an equal partner in Hey Dolly, my main roles are buying, merchandising and styling. 

What is your favourite Hey Dolly item and why?

As I choose our ranges, I have many favourites, but garments that can be worn by many ages and that can be worn day to night I love! This seasons Tiffany spot dress does just that. 

How would you describe your own style?

My style changes each season, I buy clothes that I like and are good value and comfortable. This is how we select our Hey Dolly range.

What made you want to be in fashion? 

As a child I would always be cutting, making and sewing, which lead me to start making my own clothes, thus creating my own style. 

Which high street stores do you like to shop in?

Each season I have a different favourite, but I can always find something I like in New Look, Top Shop and of course Hey dolly!

Who is your fashion icon? 

My fashion icon is John Galliano he was forward thinking in his designing and cuts of his garments. He used a lot of Bias cutting creating a total different look. 

Which celebrity do you think has the best style? 

We all have our own style and clothes look different on different people. It’s not what you wear but how you wear it! But David Beckham has style! 

Describe Hey Dolly in 3 words. 

Trendy, good value. 

Finally which styles do you think we will be seeing this autumn/winter? 

The top fashion trends for A/W 2015 are 70’s prints with fake fur, and the 90’s red tartan. The shirt dress is a very popular cut, and we are all awaiting the party evening glamour. 

Thank you Julie. We hoped you all enjoyed and have liked getting to know us all a little more. 

Remember our next pop up shop is on Tuesday September 29th. We hope to see some of you there xoxo
