A promising career in fashion design was cut short when Vicki found that she couldn't draw. Encouraged by her mentor Paul Smith to write her ideas down instead, Vicki soon found her way into the world of Advertising. She has spent that last fifteen years kicking ideas around at agencies such as Ogilvy London, Mojo Sydney, Amsterdam International, Perfect Fools Amsterdam, Wieden and Kennedy London and now Grey London. Her award winning ideas for the likes of Nike Women, Nokia, Orange, Hamleys and Ford Fiesta led D&AD to vote Vicki one of the twenty most influential women in advertising. (Truth is there still aren't many of them about so it wasn't that hard!) To satisfy her sweet tooth and love of taking other peoples money, Vicki has just opened Suck & Chew - "Purveyors of tooth decay since 2008" A traditional sweetshop in the heart of London's trendy east end. One year and two dress sizes later, British Vogue thought Suck & Chew was worth a mention in their Secret Address book.
