Meet Mickey...

Excelling as a model and a businesswoman. A multifaceted force of nature. Mickey is dismantling all preconceptions, and life is ever more exhilarating as she sits in the driving seat and masters her own success.

From Glasgow to London aged 17, Mickey worked as a successful model in Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Los Angeles, New York and London. In this high octane playground, she fronted the covers of iD Magazine, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan and the closing copy of iconic magazine Honey; and graced fashion campaigns shot by Toscani, Sacha, Steve Hiett and Jacques Olivar, to name but a few.

It soon grew into a diverse career within the fashion industry both behind-the-scenes and beyond, from assisting photographers Eddie Monsoon and Grant Fear, to starting her own fashion production company with her then husband. Working for designer streetwear brands and clients Maharishi, Silas & Maria, Addict and Vans, would be Mickey’s gateway to working in High Street Fashion Brands.

Working within various departments across prominent fashion companies including ASOS, Miss Selfridge and Topshop; she developed not only her working knowledge of the fashion business, but excelled in the field, taking on a commercial director role in her last major position in a handbags and accessories brand. But turning fifty provoked Mickey to reflect on her work, and more importantly, to contemplate her future.

Seeing a way to stitch together her own active lifestyle and over 25 years working in the midst of fashion production has led to her latest solo venture- starting her own active lifestyle clothing and kit brand PADA. Yoga found itself to be a consistent practice in her life, and one that led to her to qualify as a yoga teacher. Fused with Mickey’s experience in fashion production, PADA sits on substantial shoulders.

And she still fits in time to travel the world modelling.
