Michaela Jedinak - Founder + Creative Director of Fashion Brand Michaela Jedinak

When Michaela first arrived in London in 1999 she struggled to find professional, chic and polished dresses which could take you seamlessly from desk to dinner. She was frustrated by the lack of corporate and formal fashion in the UK and set about developing her own concept of 7 key shapes, which can be customised to fit every body shape. Four years on she was ready to launch the concept which was an instant success and received acclaim from key media International media such as Wall Street, Forbes and leading national press such as How to Spend It and The Telegraph. She championed slow and sustainable fashion from the start and continues to make all her pieces in the UK.

Six years on, Michaela now has over 100 different dresses in her range. She dresses International politicians, CEOs, news readers and actresses as well as European Royalty, and has carefully built her business to be the success it now is. She will be sharing her insights on how she has achieved this. Overcoming the challenges and obstacles she faced. How she juggled the ever-changing business landscape. Managing the cash flow and staying in profit.

Alanna Wain - Creative Director and Founder of Conflict of Ego

Tear it open and at its core, Conflict of Ego is a philosophy clothed by a brand. Every collection bleeds a socio-political topic, close to the designer’s heart. Using design and aesthetic to telegraph evocative messages to provoke thought, the brand looks to, quite literally, ‘embody’ through design, cut, and textile.

Ultimately aiming to empower people to make an entrance to be remembered and clothing which will last #CUT2LAST

Alanna, the designer behind the label, has a strong focus on serving the complex and volatile ego of women to celebrate difference, fight for unity and support each other across their various industries through the fundamentals of fashion… But most importantly COE is committed to not destroying our planet in the process #jointhemovement 

Conflict of Ego chews up and spits out the mundane concept of a brand, it is the fabric that weaves our lives, the cultural and social visage we wear to form our own expressions, our own voices, our own being.

“Different” but wearable. – COE is cut, stitched and suited to all moods.
