Malaysian-born entrepreneur and designer, Fiona Wellington, is the co-founder CEO of Myne. She set up her first business at the age of 24, shortly after qualifying as an Osteopath in 1991. She enjoyed a 20 year career in London whilst co-ordinating successful charity fundraising events and raising three daughters.
Fiona has had a lifelong captivation with fashion and design. She encouraged her children in every way to find their voice in the arts, and now – inspired and encouraged by them – Fiona is now pursuing her own artistic voice, driven by her experiences in Pakistan, her love of the arts and her understanding of the importance of female equality.
This has now led her research with experienced jewellery designers to develop her opening collections inspired by memories of their gardens in Peshawar. The Grass and Rose Leaf collections are the first of her impressive designs set to make a mark in fashion featuring the stunning Swat Valley emeralds. This is only the beginning of what promises to be an exciting journey.
Holly Wellington is a musician, composer and visual painter who experiments with expression through combining music and visual art. Her paintings focus on colourful portraits and music inspired abstracts.
Holly contributed to the first collection piece ‘The Grass Collar’ and has written a composition to accompany the opening collection which she performed at the London Beulah launch.
Holly is a valued member of the team as she brings a fresh youthfulness to the range.
