The Mother Hub Meets: Erica Davies

Today on the Mother Hub we're chatting to Erica Davies, creative extraordinaire and founder of fashion and lifestyle blog, The Edited. Erica started her career as a fashion assistant but quickly worked her way up to editor. In fact, when she was offered the role of Fashion Editor for The Sun newspaper at the tender age of twenty-four, she was, at the time, the youngest person to have held that position on Fleet Street. After spending fifteen years working on national newspapers and fashion magazines, today Erica works works full-time on The Edited, her own award-nominated fashion and lifestyle blog. Her inimitable style and fresh approach to fashion has gained her a loyal following, including everyone here at The Mother Hub! And, as is clear from the amazing interior design and style of her new home in Essex, it turns out her creative talents are not limited to fashion. Suffice to say that a rug by La Redoute that she featured on her blog last year gained such popularity that it now has its own Instagram account and has been nicknamed, 'The Erica Rug'! To find out more about Erica's amazing career journey, how fashion journalism has changed and what it feels like to set up on your own, then this interview is a must read!
