Hey people - I’m Dior (Yup, that’s my real name)

So what’s this all about? Well back in 2013, I was a proud Fashion Promotion graduate and had just landed my dream job at the Burberry HQ in London. Yet, despite these achievements, imposter syndrome kicked in and I had nowhere to turn for guidance or support.

In desperate need of a pep(per) talk I reached out to my fellow fashion newbies and quickly realised that everyone felt the same! The gap between education and early employment felt like a big black hole. In 2016, I set out on a mission to create an informed and inclusive career hub for fashion students, graduates and young professionals.

Pepper Your Talk was birthed out of a generations frustration and through our work to inspire you, enhance your skills and cultivate your connections, we’re championing a new tribe of confident fashion front-runners.
