Associate Director (Qual, Trends, Innovation)
With a creative start studying a BA in fashion design at Central Saint Martins and a stint as Miss Anna Wintour’s assistant at Vogue NY, Eleanor quickly discovered she cared more about the people and less about the clothes. Stopping off to cut her teeth in independent film marketing and fashion brand development, the last ten years have been spent specialising in brand strategy and insight both agency-side at The Gild and in-house with emerging fashion label London Undercover. Eleanor joins Crowd DNA following a nine month sabbatical immersing herself in the culture of southern Asia, where she qualified as a yoga teacher, trekked in the Himalayas and volunteered in a school in the slums of Mumbai. Now more District Line than New Delhi, you can find Eleanor murdering Paul Simon on the karaoke or hustling you over a game of bowling.
