Nicola Walker

NickyWalkerAfter studying fashion and textiles at the University of Brighton, I spent most of my career as a children’s wear designer, working full-time or as a freelance consultant for big High Street names like M&S, BHS and Mothercare.

Originally from St Andrews, I now live in Cobham, Surrey, where in recent years I have juggled the demands of raising a family with running a small interiors and soft furnishings business. My cat products started out as presents for cat-loving friends.

Our household is presided over by Dorothy, a short-haired black moggie. She’s a prolific hunter but very affectionate to anyone who gives her the time.
