Behind the Scenes: Meet the Buyers

With the new Fenwick Bracknell store opening on Thursday 7th September, we're taking you behind the scenes.

We spoke exclusively with the buyers who are bringing your new store to life, starting with our fabulous beauty buyers...

Meet the Buyers: Beauty

Michelle - Beauty & Fragrance Buyer

What brands you are excited about bringing to Bracknell?

We’ll be focusing our beauty offering on premium, exclusive and new. I’m so excited about working with Jo Malone London and Urban Decay, both brands are not yet stocked in Kingston. We will also have a greater selection of the Tom Ford colour range in Bracknell which I can't wait to explore further. On Fragrance we are launching Atelier Cologne who offer a beautiful personalisation service so I may find myself being tempted into buying a new fragrance or two!

What trends should we be looking out for?

LIPS, LIPS and more LIPS!!
Lots of Matte lipsticks and glosses and a big trend on lip stains which last all day but don't dry your lips out.

What are you most looking forward to about the new store?

All of the new counters being fresh and shiny!! Also working with and developing the new teams.
