Last night, 14 BAWE ladies met up at Cromlix for dinner and we welcomed speaker Mette Bailley from Freja Fashion in Edinburgh. Mette is a multi-award winning Haute Couture Wedding Dress and Women’s Fashion Designer.
She told us her story about how she built her business and how she started her career and how she ran the business in full capacity while undergoing intensive breast cancer treatment in 2016 and 2017. Mette is just so full of energy which came across in her talk. She said that because she does not have a car, and she was advised not to use public transport during chemotherapy, she decided to make the journey to and from the hospital part of her usual fitness regime – she simply ran to the hospital, had treatment, and ran back home. While undergoing treatment, she maintained her normal fitness activities, such as going to the gym, going swimming and running.
She is such an inspirational lady and everyone loved her talk.
Cromlix staff spoilt us again all evening with a wonderful dinner.
