Gill Thewlis

Strategy Consultant to the Creative Industries & Business Coach. Fashion Designer and Maker of Individually Designed and Individually Fitted Clothes for Working Women

After 20 years in Banking I spent 3 years learning to be a fashion designer, graduating from the University of Leeds in 2003.  Since then I have built a wide ranging coaching and consultancy business, mostly in the creative industries and am currently a business adviser within the Creative Industries Finance Scheme, amongst other things.

In 2013 I began to develop my own fashion business, Your Ultimate Working Wardrobe, born out of a 35 year frustration that it is almost impossible to find clothes to fit on the high street, and the realisation that 95% of the female population suffer in the same way.  Clothes made under the "Yuww Individual" label are co-designed with the customer, and the customer sits at the centre of the process.  We specialise in tailored dresses, trousers, skirts, shirts, blouses, jackets & coats.  We make clothes for every-body-shape &size.  We empower women by helping them feel invincible and to perform at the top of their game.
