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.

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!
