Episode 12: Rachel Beattie, Careaux
This week, I’m thrilled to be chatting to the lovely Rachel Beattie, who is the co founder of fashion business, Careaux. Careaux combines Rachel’s two passions - maths and fashion - to create beautiful dresses that fit perfectly, and Rachel had the idea for the business when she was just fourteen - how amazing is that?!
We had a great conversation about how she turned her teenage idea into the business it is today, how Manchester’s textile heritage has inspired her, and how initiatives like the Northern Powerhouse have allowed her to propel her idea forward. I think Rachel is the youngest guest we’ve had on the podcast so far, and I was totally blown away by how smart, focussed and ambitious she is. I hope you all really enjoy the show.
