Kelly Dunmore started her career at a local family-run business in Cockfosters, London.
It was here that she developed her ‘obsession’ for the lingerie industry and after quick progression to management she was snapped up by Harrods to be part of its Management Programme.
Dunmore’s time at Harrods saw her look after Elle McPherson account, the largest within the lingerie department, and dabble in luxury accessories on the ground floor before being appointed as retail manager of the Egyptian Hall.
She then went onto become the store manager of Rigby & Peller Mayfair, where she spent three years helping to position the store as the highest-performing store in the UK estate in 2014/15.
In 2015, she took on the role of chief lingerie stylist where she is responsible for the ongoing training of close to 100 employees.
She regularly advises consumers on her top tips for finding the perfect bras to compliment their shape, wardrobes and lifestyle to instil confidence and ensure comfort and has been quoted as a ‘lingerie fitting expert’ in several newspapers and magazines, such as The Telegraph, the Metro, the Huffington Post and Cosmopolitan.
Dunmore sat on the judging panel for the 2015 UK Lingerie Awards and recently appeared on BBC One Programme Shop Well for Less, which aired on March 2.
