Born in Kingston, Jamaica Audrey was surrounded by the richness of the culture, growing up amongst the picturesque waterfalls and mountainous valleys of the island, her childhood life was indeed an adventurous one. Her Grandfather was a leading figure in the Caribbean and her father’s sisters, her aunts, were the epitome of ‘Posh’ – as they would stride the sidewalks in the basking sunshine, umbrellas atop their heads – draped in heels, even to the corner store. Thus, her love for fashion was imprinted in her DNA, as she too is rarely without her five inch stilettos. The food, the fashion, and the music was cemented in her being forever. She left the Caribbean aged six bound for the ‘promise land’, England.
Audrey first performed at The Royal Albert Hall aged 9 in a choir, in presence of a full auditorium of Royal guests, celebrities and politicians such as Neil Kinnock. She later went on to join Unique Dance Crew at age 14 and began her career as a dancer – touring England and performing as a support act for celebrities such as Richard Blackwood in renowned establishments, including Stratford Theatre Royal, Stratford Town Hall, and Mills Island Studios.
Audrey studied Journalism at the former London School of Printing (University of The Arts London) and immediately made her impact on the music journalism scene with her first ‘Big Story’, about an A list celebrity. At just 22 years old, during the first year of her degree course, she stumbled upon a story and approached both UK and American tabloid press. She was offered a five figure sum for the story but declined the offers and the story has never been published. Later that year, Audrey was successfully shortlisted for fashion bible, Vogue magazine’s, Vogue Talent Contest for Young Writers.
Audrey later joined BBC Worldwide, as a features writer on Top of The Pops and It’s Hot! magazines and also coordinated deliveries for royal clients and various high class celebrities at the worlds largest online fashion store, net-a-porter.com.
