From banking to launching a fashion business to Marie Claire eCommerce Director - Emily Ferguson

The Glam Observer Fashion Podcast

Emily Ferguson is the eCommerce Director at Marie Claire. Her entry into the fashion industry is not the typical one of those who want to get into the glamourous industry.  She studied international business, finance and economics and started her career in banking where she stayed for six years but with an exit strategy since the beginning. She went into banking in fact to save up some money to launch her own business and also pay for her student loan.When she had enough money saved, she took the leap and started her own eCommerce fashion affiliate business. She ran her business for three years until the website design company she was working with went bust and one of the freelancers took the copyright. The quote to relaunch her business was 3x times higher, so that was the moment when she knew in her heart that it was not the right time to run her own business again and made the brave decision to step back and went to work for a fashion startup.Her own fashion business was her only experience in fashion, all her previous experience and what she studied were totally unrelated to fashion but she leveraged her own fashion company perfectly to land a job in other fashion companies. You could try this option too: entering fashion by leveraging your fashion business and then switch to the fashion corporate world.She then went to work at the Telegraph and eventually landed at Marie Claire: “Skills are always transferable even across industries...you’ve got to be more relaxed with your career. follow your passion, not your money. "In this episode, we also talk about what her job is about, what she looks for when hiring new people at the fashion magazine, her latest project the Marie Claire Beauty Edit and the future of the business of fashion publications.

Season 2, Ep. 5: Fungal Biomes | Prof. Marie Claire Arrieta


When you hear the phrase ‘gut microbiome’, you most often think about bacteria. However, a huge proportion of your intestinal microbes are viruses, archaea and fungi. These other microbes however, have been studied in much less detail and we know less about what they are doing to your body. In this episode, Dr. Ruairi Robertson speaks with Dr. Marie Claire Arrietta from University of Calgary, a leading researcher on fungal microbiomes. She discusses how gut fungi interact with the immune system, myths about Candida and how gut fungi may affect children’s lung health. Microbiome Insights provide services to assess the fungal microbiome using ITS2 sequencing. Find out more at www.microbiomeinsights.com

Andrea Thompson Editor In Chief at Marie Claire

Hacking Happiness by DOSE

Andrea Thompson is the Editor In Chief at Marie Claire. For much of her career she has specialised in investigative journalism and loves helping bring to light inspirational stories from people who traditionally have not been given a voice in mainstream media.In her years as an undercover reporter, she travelled the world exposing everything from child labour in India to rogue surgeons in Moscow who were creating stem cell beauty treatments from aborted foetuses. She’s secretly filmed money-grabbing doctors on Harley Street for Channel 4 show The Ugly Face of Beauty and went undercover on celebrity yachts in Cannes to investigate the casting couch tradition that exploits young models during festival season. Her most nerve-wrecking stories included researching the casual use of rape-drugs in Goa for The Sunday Times and going undercover to expose the dubious business dealings of property tycoon Donald Trump for The Daily Mail, a whole decade before he took up residence at the White House.At Marie Claire, Andrea oversaw a hard-hitting feature on rape as a weapon of war that won the title an Amnesty Media Award, and now acts as as a judge for the awards each year. She regularly chairs events for Marie Claire and mentors young women trying to break into the industry. In this podcast, she talks to us about how she balances a high powered career with raising two children, her advice to budding journalists and how she gets her endorphins pumping though runs and climbing trees in Hampstead Heath.This podcast is in partnership with MALIN+GOETZ – purveyors of uncomplicated luxury skincare.

How Investigative Journalism Brought One Young Woman Up Close & Personal with Weinstein

Dot to Dot Behind the Person

Do you think anyone was covering the story of Weinstein 15 years ago? If they were, why did it take so long to ignite international interest? Is Covid-19 going to create a fresh start for women or set equality back? Can a fashion and beauty brand embody a genuine feminist agenda? These are all topics we explore in the second episode of Dot to Dot ‘Behind the Person’ with this week’s guest Andrea Thompson.In this episode we talk about growing up in London with an English mother and father from Barbados and what it felt like to be ‘different’. We explore how seeing the way in which her father was treated compared to her mother made Andrea determined to allow marginalised voices to be heard. Andrea tells me about her time as a fearless young reporter meeting Weinstein face to face, exposing one of Trump’s businesses, investigating Russian companies and uncovering sweatshops in India. We discuss the four pillars that underpin the values she really cares about: women’s empowerment, sustainability, education of girls and women and mental health, and how this is driving the current agenda at Marie Claire. Andrea is passionate about unveiling injustice but doing so in a way that provides people with the everyday relief and inspiration to make a difference and get on with their own lives with a spring in their step. This underpins everything she does including the fashion and beauty at Marie Claire which is about celebrating women as they are, instead of as they 'should be'. I’m sure that you will be able to feel the energy that she puts into her career and ensuring that people are heard seep through the recording to positively infect your day, week and maybe even your year ahead.
