Gemma Cartwright - Editorial Director
Gemma launched Catwalk Queen whilst studying for a degree in Fashion Journalism at The London College of Fashion. During this time, the site was nominated for an EMAP Fanzine Award, and Gemma was described as one of the "Editors of the Future" by The Independent. She worked on the site until 2009, when she took some time out to work on other online projects. She joined Aigua Media in September 2011 and is delighted to be back at the helm of Catwalk Queen, as well as managing the portfolio in her role as Editorial Director.
Throughout her career, Gemma has worked closely with brands and retailers to promote blogging and digital media. She has guest edited blogs for Topshop, Evans, Koodos, Yell and Grazia and made various TV and radio appearances, including Sky News, BBC Panorama and BBC Radio 5. She has also judged a modelling competition, spoken on many industry panels and hosted workshops at Britain's Next Top Model Live, Graduate Fashion Week and The Ideal Home Show.
Gemma has appeared in Vogue, The Guardian Online, The Observer, The Telegraph, The Independent, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, Company, SHE, Reveal and The Evening Standard to name but a few.
