Victoria is the founder, owner and creative director of Brora. She studied interior design at the Inchbald School of Design and then read Art History at the University of East Anglia. Having been brought up in an entrepeneurial family, Victoria was always keen to run her own business.
When, in 1990, her family bought Hunters of Brora, a 100-year old tweed mill based on the east coast of Scotland, Victoria was put in charge of the mill's retail venture in Brora village, selling not only the famous Hunters of Brora tweed but a variety of clothing all sourced from local suppliers. Her passion for Scottish textiles was confimed and this experience sowed the seeds of her future and the founding of Brora.
