A note from Azzi:

“My fragrance compositions are based on 'Character and Style’, each with an artistic story and reference. I have been fortunate to have worked over the years with so many incredible personalities that herald their unique style. I could see there was a demand for educating consumers with fragrances that would match and suit their own individual DNA with a real spice of originality. I wanted to create the ultimate finishing touch that would be adored by others, totally loyal to the wearer and evoke memories for years to come.” – Azzi Glasser



Allegra Haines

Allegra is an entrepreneur and businesswoman based in London, Founder and Director of The Booking Project - a talent agency booking business that began with TV and has now evolved into managing some of the biggest and best social influencer talent on social media.

A note from Allegra:

“I always knew I wanted to embark on a career in the media in some form. In the early twenties, HEAT magazine would fly of the shelf and into most people’s hands. We became as nation obsessed with popular culture - this was aided by shows like Big Brother where a new type of celebrity was born - the Reality Star.

I wanted a slice of this pie, and to do this I knew I needed to get on the M4 from South Wales and head to London.


After a few temping jobs, answering calls, selling mobile phones and door to door cold sales - I got a job as a runner at a very trendy production company working on Breakfast Tele. This was the beginning of a career working in the TV industry, primarily and more specifically working with on screen talent. After 8 years and a move to Sydney, I decided I could no longer work for anyone. My mind was made that I wanted to put all my eggs into creating a business where I could take on a number of jobs, rather than be chained the desk of an employer. 


On returning to the UK from Sydney I had set up the foundations, structure and ethos of The Booking Project. It started as a talent booking agency for TV and (back then) traditional advertising. 

The agency has pivoted slightly and now covers talent booking, digital management with a roster of 26 talent and DEI consultancy. 


My law degree, paired with my years of working of working with broadcast talent and their agents set me up with a deep understanding of what it takes to manage people properly.


The Booking Project’s digital roster is growing fast, as well as developing in ways that are incredibly exciting. The main vertical we cover is beauty, as I have always been a big believer of selling something you love means you will sell it well. 

We have a way of working, which stems from who I am as a person. My values have influenced my business practise, and the roster is made up of very talented, very committed, and very kind people who I respect greatly.” – Allegra Haines

Kelly Gunner

With over 10 years of experience in marketing, digital comms, social, commercial partnerships and strategy, Kelly’s focus on music, fashion, sports, and lifestyle lead to the creation of TOMME Studio.


Known for their custom handmade basketball bags, TOMME was created to reimagine streetwear for today’s generation, blurring the lines between masculinity and femininity through their basketball and American football bags.




A note from Kelly:

“I'm Kelly Gunner, the creator behind TOMME, a streetwear label specialising in meticulously crafted basketball bags. Inspired by my deep-rooted passion for the sport, I scour the globe for unique basketballs (as well as now manufacturing our own), transforming each into a captivating unisex accessory. 


When I started out, it was never really to establish a brand per se. It was a hobby and about having a creative outlet. I was putting in the hours to develop the product, but I had a full-time job, so I was producing bags after work and at weekends. I was always nervous about putting myself out there in case I failed, so it was always a ‘side hustle’. But what initially started as a hobby took on a life of its own as the brand evolved quickly. I had two full-time jobs and had to make a decision about whether to focus solely on TOMME. It was a risk, but I had to take it. I was lucky, as my background includes knowing a little about marketing, so working with brands, influencers and social media made it easier to establish all the elements that contribute to a ‘brand’ in the traditional sense. 


Remember brands don’t happen overnight (even though it sometimes seems like they do) and to maintain constant development, growth and sales takes a lot. POV: You start a small business to quit a 9-5, but now you work 24/7 🙂 ... but it's worth it.” – Kelly Gunner

A note from Ebony:

"I founded Studio Dream in 2022 London based Creative Production Houses, and is one of the few black and female led agencies producing globally recognised work.  From executive Producing The 2024 Pirelli Calendar featuring Naomi Campbell and Idris Elba, to designing and producing the Season finale launch event of Top Boy at Somerset House. Me and my team are always pushing boundaries creatively.I am passionate about creating brand experiences that are authentic, inspiring, and leave a lasting impression.


Born in the UK but raised partly in Ghana, has enabled me to take a more worldly view in my approach to work.  It also allows me to tap into and push culture forward to create communities, not just customers.


I started my career in Media working for various titles including The Guardian, The Independent and later I-D Magazine. I have close to a decade of experience in the luxury, lifestyle, fashion and creative industries and continue to work with a range of influential artists and brands.  Advising brands on ways to leverage creativity, consumer behaviour and experiential marketing to achieve an advantage. I am very driven but have a deep ambition to create useful, beautiful, and relevant work that transcends perceived cultural boundaries.


I am incredibly passionate about inspiring and connecting with women, my goal continues to be hiring, supporting and collaborating with women.


Career Lows:  Being made redundant from what I thought (at the time) was my dream job!


Career Highs: Using the knock to my confidence after being made redundant to rebuild, and pivot. Revisiting my strengths and learning how to play them. Taking a leap of faith and starting my own agency. Tapping into my lived experience to create unique and authentic brand stories. Inspiring other women who look like me to see themselves in other spaces." - Ebony Atakorah
