Driven by fear, Mary Benson is a go-getter and an inspiration for all in her field and more. Given a sewing machine at the age of 15, Mary Benson started making clothes and bags to sell to friends to make money. As a teenager, Mary had designs stocked in a Leeds boutique and she also featured in the TV series, Mary Queen of Shops (BBC2). Pretty impressive right?

Mary is already developing a celebrity following with the likes of Rita Ora, Paloma Faith and Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney wearing her designs.
