Harriet Verney is a young London based writer and co-founder of online magazine PIGMEE and online shop The 123 Store. Verney developed a sense of rebellion during her time in private education and as such found a career path within fashion. She contributes to a score of leading publications including American Vogue and i-D.
'This is How We Do It' was a particularly successful piece for i-D showcasing talented and stylish 18 year olds. The project encouraged Verney, along with colleague Scarlett Carlos Clarke to found PIGMEE, an online magazine featuring emerging London designers and unpublished works of late and great icons such as Isabella Blow and images from Bob Carlos Clarke.
On top of her blossoming writing carreer, Verney also founded The 123 Store, an online concept platform selling undiscovered and renown British designs. The 123 Store celebrates the best of British aesthetics, stocking crows feet, couture, Kray memorabilia, bazaar gifts, British fashion and more.
Verney's striking look has been the subject of renowned photographers Nick Knight and Mario Testino and her creative explorations continues to captivate the fashion industry.
She made assistants cry by saying, 'you bloody lesbian wearing flat shoes'.
