Jackie Edwards initially gained a degree in Fashion and Dress History from a UK university, before going on to work for a variety of small businesses - starting off in the sewing rooms and learning her craft from scratch. During the 1990s, she set up and ran her own boutique, dealing in original creations and vintage fashion. When she got married and became a mother some 15 years ago, she turned to working from home, and now has a small set up focusing on vintage dress repairs in her free time, but also spends a great deal of her time writing and working on articles and papers relating to fashion, art and design.
