Pick of the frock: Cheryl Cole picks Brighton graduate’s dress
Cheryl Cole wore a dress created by University of Brighton graduate Juliette Offenbach in last year’s X Factor series.
Her 1950s style leopard print dress was worn by Cheryl Cole, and the likes of Lily Allen and Peaches Geldof are also said to be fans of her work. The mini-dress made it to In Style’s “Look of the day” and is part of her fifth collection for her label Pink Label London. The label was set up in 2007.
Prior to becoming a fully-fledged fashion designer, the 28 year-old studied economics at the University of Brighton, and has worked both here and in the USA. Her dresses have been shown in Grazia, Cosmopolitan and other fashion magazines.
That Juliette has used her degree in Economics to pursue a career in fashion shows the versatility of the modern degree. Having graduated four years ago, Juliette found various work experience both before and during her university years.
On her blog, Juliette comments “I’m so honoured that Cheryl wanted to wear the dress I designed for Charlotte Olympia. It’s part of our summer collaboration. It was great fun collaborating with amazing shoes designer (and my childhood friend) Charlotte!”
Juliette’s dresses can be found in Selfridges and other high end department stores.
