Ceril's career began at the end of the 1970's after gaining a Fashion, Merchandising & Design degree. Ceril's first major job was as a buying consultant, liaising between New York department stores such as Saks 5th Avenue & iconic British designers of that era including Zandra Rhodes & Bill Gibbs. Ceril's successful early retailing experience, whilst still only in her early 20's, led to an exciting job offer to create, style & buy for two new concept Jean Machine/FU's flagship boutiques on Bond St & Knightsbridge. This project took Ceril to Hong Kong for the styling, design & manufacture of the ranges. In the late 1980's after the birth of her own 2 children, Ceril opened her own kids' emporium. Kids on the Green on the New Kings Road, Chelsea, where the Duchess of York & the late Paula Yates both shopped for their children.
Meanwhile Ceril had also established a career in styling, advising & re-imaging film stars, pop stars, TV actors & presenters, & sports personalities, in both the UK & USA.
In the USA Ceril worked with many celebrities on ad campaigns & photoshoots: Jane Seymour for Le Jardin de Max Factor, Ringo Starr for Sun Country Wine Cooler & Richard Branson for GQ magazine. She also worked with leading film directors including Adrian Lyne, Nicolas Roeg and Alan Parker.
Celebrities that Ceril has styled over her long and successful career include Darcey Bussell, Serena Williams, Shakira Caine, Anna Kournikova, Dannii Minogue and Zara Phillips. Click on Celebrity Archive to see more.
